The debacle of Galaxy Note 7 was a huge blow to Samsung not only in terms of business, but also as a brand. It sparked off rumours that the company might kill the Note series once and for all, but it has now emerged that Galaxy Note 8 is coming, perhaps in the second half of 2017.

Samsung has announced an interesting upgrade programme for Galaxy Note 7 users in South Korea. Under the programme, those who exchange their Galaxy Note 7 handset for either a Galaxy S7 or a Galaxy S7 edge will be given the chance to upgrade to the upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 next year. Customers need to pay only half the price of Galaxy S7 for the upgrade and avail a 50 per cent discount on LCD repair twice.

The upgrade programme is currently open until November 30 and only in its home country South Korea. Those who have already traded their Galaxy Note 7 handsets for either Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge will be eligible for the upgrade programme.

Samsung might have disappointed many with its ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, but fans of the Note series will be happy that Galaxy Note 8 is in the offing. The truth is that the company was known more for its Note devices until the Note 7 fiasco happened.

The South Korean technology giant was forced to announce replacement of a faulty battery in Galaxy Note 7 before deciding to stop its production and sales after issues kept dogging the device.
