Samsung to Offer Galaxy S7/S7 Edge to Those Who Pre-Booked Galaxy Note 7

Samsung is reportedly offering the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge to those who had pre-booked the Galaxy Note 7 in India. The company has also issued a statement apologizing to the customers who had pre-booked the company’s Note flagship.  Well, this isn’t surprising considering that Samsung put an end to the production globally earlier this week.


To recall, Samsung made crazy headlines for all the wrong reasons — right from the Note 7 devices catching fire to the company recalling millions of units. Despite bearing all the unimaginable loss and negative publicity, trouble for Samsung doesn’t seem to be fading away. Customers who are not interested in the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge replacement can get a full refund of the Note 7 pre-booking amount from the retailer.

However, if customers wish to go ahead with this deal, the company is also offering Gear VR and Level U stereo wireless headset for free. Along with that, Samsung is also offering Oculus content voucher worth Rs. 3,300. Additionally, Samsung is offering one-time screen replacement on the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge for a 12-month period from the date of activation.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 sports a 5.1-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It has 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, which is expandable up to 200GB via microSD card. The Dual-SIM device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and packs in a 3000mAh battery. It houses a 12MP rear camera and 5MP front shooter.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, has almost similar specifications other than the display and battery. It has a slightly bigger 5.5-inch double-edged display and a 3600mAh battery. To get this settlement done, customers need to visit the  store where they had pre-booked the Galaxy Note 7 and complete all required the procedures.
