After such a tumultuous few weeks following the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 last month, Korean OEM giants, Samsung is ready to relaunch the Galaxy Note 7 in India on the 7th of October.
The new and “Safe” Galaxy Note 7 units are said to feature much better battery systems that would not explode like it’s “predecessor”.
To help get this new launch moving as strongly as expected , Samsung is said to be committing a very huge budget for AD campaigns and promotional runs. This is to help disabuse the minds of customers worldwide and reassure them of the safety of using the new units and the overall quality Samsung is known for.
Another issue the Korean OEM would have to contend with is the coincidental launch of Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in India as well. This puts Samsung in a relatively tight spot as the market there would be spoiled with options for a worthy flagship device this year.
Though Samsung may have taken a serious publicity beating over the exploding Note 7 units over the past few weeks, the OEM is still very confident that the Note 7 would bounce back in terms of acceptance and consequent sales.
However, the unfortunate episode is believed to have prompted the speed up of production and likely earlier release of the Galaxy S8. Reason why? – to make up for the lost sales of the Note 7.
Early rumours suggest a dual 12MP and 13MP camera setup, improved CPU chipsets (a likely Exynos 8900? and Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 variants), USB Type C port, water and dust resistance, microSD slot for memory expansion, Android OS 7.0 Nougat and a 3600mAh battery to all feature on the coming Galaxy S8.
