A store in Hong Kong is still selling the Galaxy Note 7 at a “special price”
Samsung has discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 worldwide due to possibilities of a fire hazard, and the company has recalled all the units it sold. However, some customers are not willing to return their devices (for unknown reasons). Now, an image of a Hong Kong store has surfaced, which is still selling the Galaxy Note 7 at a “special price”.
This image was captured by Engadget’s senior editor Richard Lai. We don’t know whether this “special price” means a discounted price or a higher than usual price. Many vendors sell imported Samsung smartphones in the grey market with no local warranty at $100-150 discounts. These vendors may have large stocks of the Galaxy Note 7 left with no easy way to return them to Samsung.
Yeah, this shop in Hong Kong is still selling Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at a “special price.” I didn’t dare to ask how much. pic.twitter.com/ekW4gf3ET9
