Following reports of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 blowing up in people’s pockets and the sbsequent worldwid recall of the phablet, Samsung is deesperate to prevent owners of it next flagship brand, the S7, from returning their phones by sending them a message clarifying that the S7 is not an affected device, according to staff of TechBuffalo.
“The message clearly is meant to inform Galaxy S7 owners, and also perhaps to reassure them that their phone is most likely not going to explode on them like a number of Note 7 smartphones have over the past month. Samsung might think that some Galaxy S7 owners could confuse their phone for the Note 7 because both have a “7” in their branding, even though the Galaxy S7 was first released several months ahead of the Note 7.” Android Authority says.
Already, it is estimated that the company will lose around $17 billion from the worldwide recall of the Galaxy Note 7. This has led to the company reducing its profit forecast for the third quarter of 2016 from about $7.0 billion down to $4.6 billion due to the Note 7 recall.
It is not yet confirmed whether users in Nigeria have received these messages. But obviously, Samsung is really desperate for the S7 not to be recalled.
