Loyal Galaxy users in Korea who had purchased the Note 7 may be eligible for deep discounts on next year's Galaxy flagships.

The launch of the Galaxy Note 7 ended in disaster for Samsung and the manufacturer is still at a loss as to what exactly is causing the fires. Despite being one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers with ample resources and strict quality assurance programs, continuing investigations have not yet offered much insight.

Samsung will be offering original owners of the Note 7 who had switched to the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge a 50 percent discount on next year's Galaxy S8 and Note 8 smartphones. The program directly rewards users who have decided to remain within the Galaxy family of smartphones instead of switching to another competitor. The offer will apply to owners in South Korea for now.

Additionally, Galaxy Club members who purchased the Note 7 with a 24-month contract will have their contract terms cut in half to just 12 months. This would allow users to immediately switch to the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 when they become available next year without waiting an additional year for their contracts to expire.

Other sources are claiming that the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 have been delayed due to the fallout of the Note 7 fires.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
