Koreans are in no hurry to get rid of the explosive Galaxy Note 7

Корейцы не спешат избавляться от взрывоопасного Galaxy Note 7 Two months after the announcement of the full return / exchange program for all Galaxy Note7 sold, Samsung Electronics managed to return 2.7 million flagship units out of 3.06 million delivered to different parts of the Earth. At the same time, more than 90% of smartphones have returned from the North American and European markets, while buyers from South Korea are less likely to part with their beloved, but dangerous gadget. In this regard, the manufacturer is forced to “shut off oxygen” to users by releasing updates restricting the functionality of the smartphone, but soon Galaxy Note7 may even turn into a brick. Now Samsung is thinking about taking coercive measures for smartphone holders in South Korea. The day before, the company announced two new software updates. So, after December 19, most American Galaxy Note 7 will stop charging (only the Verizon operator spoke out), and from December 15, the European flagships will be limited to a maximum battery level of 30%. Since October, this value has already been reduced to 60%. The Korean market provides some of the most favorable conditions for exchanging Galaxy Note 7. Instead of an explosive flagship, the top-end Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are offered, followed by a 50% discount on the purchase of Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8. However, the proposal does not succeed in bribing the remaining persistent owners of Galaxy Note 7. Therefore, measures taken for Australia / Europe / Canada / USA can also earn on the local market. Note that the return and exchange program is officially valid until December 15 of this year. Samsung does not say anything about its extension.
