Samsung Galaxy Note 7 once again on sale in South Korea

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 once again on sale in South Korea
Samsung announced earlier this week that its Galaxy Note 7 would to resume sale in South Korea this weekend. The device's global roll-out as has been so fraught with roadblocks, that key dates have been subject to change. However, the October 1st relaunch in the company's native land has gone ahead as planned, with Korean consumers once again able to get their hands on Sammy's newest top-end phablet. 

The Galaxy Note 7 has reviewed very well and looked set, at one point, to smash sales numbers of the preceding Note 5. With a curved-edge, QHD display, Snapdragon 820, 4 GB RAM, expandable storage and Samsung's signature S Pen, it's packed to the gills with features that Note devotees have become accustomed to. A few incidents of battery fires and explosions quickly put the brakes on the Note 7's promising start, though, and as the recall continues, some markets still won't see the device for many weeks yet. 

While Samsung's reputation has suffered across the world, Korean consumers are fiercely loyal to what is one of its largest and most celebrated electronics firms. As Sammy looks to earn back the trust of its native gadget lovers, though, the company may have more difficulty doing so over in China

In Europe, the Note 7 is poised to roll out in four weeks' time, a full two months behind the slab's initial launch. Meanwhile, several other devices including Apple's iPhone 7 Plus may dip into what would otherwise have been Samsung's clientele. With the Google Pixel XL, LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 and several other big phones likely to drop over the coming weeks, many of Samsung's rivals will be looking to do likewise.
