After receiving a huge setback over a faulty battery in the recently released Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is back with a new vigour to sell the device. It is reported that the device will be relaunched in India next month.
Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to be released in India on September 2, but was stopped after the company was forced to announce a global recall following reports of explosion caused by its battery. Samsung is now reportedly planning to relaunch the device on October 7, and it will be newly-manufactured units.
It is reported that the South Korean technology giant will market the device aggressively through all mediums -- television, print and digital media.
Samsung had earlier admitted that Galaxy Note 7 indeed had technical problem, and found out during the investigation that the battery cell has an issue.
"For customers who already have Galaxy Note 7 devices, we will voluntarily replace their current device with a new one over the coming weeks," Samsung had said in a statement, adding that it would work closely with its "partners to ensure the replacement experience is as convenient and efficient as possible."
Indians, who have pre-ordered the device, have already been informed via sms that shipments of the handset would be delayed.

It also features a 64GB internal memory expandable up to 256GB via microSD card, a 4GB RAM, a 12MP main camera with f/1.7 aperture, 26mm lens, phase detection autofocus, OIS, LED flash, 1/2.5" sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size, a 5MP front-snapper with f/1.7 aperture and 22mm lens and a 3,500mAh battery made by Samsung SDI.
