Samsung has reopened several Galaxy Note 7 experience zones in its homeland over the past few days
Samsung's Galaxy mobile device brand is as well-known as any. We've seen countless smartphones and tablets released under the Galaxy umbrella in recent years, including some of the company's most successful exports. As you'll probably
have seen, though, the recent Galaxy Note 7
roll-out didn't quite go to plan
, and Samsung's reputation in general has taken a considerable hit. Still, as the recall / relaunch of its latest top-end phablet continues globally, Samsung Galaxy has managed to retain pole position as South Korea's most valuable brand.
According to Brand Stock's index of brands in Korea, Samsung Galaxy topped the pile with a score of 912.1 points for Q3 of this year. Though it's not precisely clear how Brand Stock reaches its figures, if Samsung Galaxy can survive a quarter where its newest release is recalled for cases of exploding batteries, one suspects it's probably going to remain top brand for quite a while.
As you'll notice, Google also carries plenty of clout over in Korea, having claimed ninth spot in the country during the third quarter. With the Mountain View company about to take the wraps off several big products
at a special event this week
, it may have edged closer to Samsung Galaxy by the time Brand Stock publishes its Q4 research.
