We’ve all heard of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 debacle which resulted in the company recalling the handset, costing the Korean giant upto a whopping $1 billion.
If you’re interested, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is back in stock in the United States with Verizon and Sprint selling the “safer” version of the handset.
All the color options are available through the carrier, and it won’t be long before other carriers, and even the retailers start selling the safer version of the handset.
In case you can’t recall, the handset had some battery issues which resulted in a number of explosion incidents where the handsets literally caught fire while charging. As a result, the company had to recall all the units which were shipping with Samsung batteries, and we’re hoping the company has completely fixed the issue.
The recall will definitely affect the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 as consumers might get a little afraid before they purchase the handset. We’ve heard rumors in the past few days that Samsung may have pushed the launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 edge in response to the recent events, but there’s no official confirmation as of now.
