While carriers in the United States and other countries have been dealing with returns and refunds of the now-discontinued Galaxy Note7, customers in India haven't had much to deal with, largely because their Note7 pre-orders hadn't even shipped. Now, to thank those who waited all this time for their pre-ordered Note7s, Samsung India has churned up a pretty sweet offer to customers who choose to grab a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge instead.
Originally, Samsung intended for the Note7 to go on sale on September 2nd in India, but supply shortages caused that date to be moved back significantly - so significantly, in fact, that those who waited for the Note7 still didn't have their phones before the phone's complete cancellation.
In an attempt to appease these customers (who are probably pretty furious that they waited several weeks for nothing), Samsung India is offering pre-orderers who buy a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge the new Gear VR, an Oculus Gear VR voucher (apparently worth 3,300 INR or $50 USD), a Samsung Level U wireless headset, and a one-time screen replacement (redeemable within the first year) free of charge.
If you're in India and you pre-ordered the Note7, you can take advantage of the offer by visiting the retailer you pre-ordered from. If you'd just like a refund, you can still get one.
