After world wide recall of Note 7 and delay in launch of company’s flagship smartphone in markets where it wasn’t launched, the Samsung Pakistan has now confirmed that Note 7 Launch in Pakistan will be delayed as well.
Samsung Pakistan, in a statement, said that it has also stopped the pre-orders and any placed orders will be processed only after launch of Note 7 in Pakistan.
It merits mentioning here that Samsung was booking pre-orders for Note 7 at Rs. 93,500.
Samsung Pakistan, however, didn’t confirm any launch date for Note 7 but we think it will not be possible any earlier than October.
It maybe recalled that Samsung issued a world wide recall of Note 7 in markets where it was launched, including South Korea.
It is estimated that company lost US 1 billion dollars due to a battery issue as at least 35 Note 7 devices caught fire when charging.
Samsung, in its statement, said that it is committed to producing the highest quality products and that it takes every incident report from customers very seriously. “In response to recently reported cases of the new Galaxy Note7, we conducted a thorough investigation and found a battery cell issue”.
Samsung Pakistan said that it will announce a launch date at a later time.
“We acknowledge that this may cause inconvenience in the market but this is to ensure that Samsung continues to deliver the highest quality products to our customers”, said Samsung Pakistan.
