The South Korean giant is under enormous pressure after the failure of latest flagship Galaxy Note 7. A couple of days ago, an alleged replaced variant of Note 7 exploded on the Southwest Airlines and if this is accurate then for sure it will force the tech giant to announce the second recall. If Samsung announces second recall of Galaxy Note 7, they will surely lose billions of dollars and thousands of potential buyers across the globe.
On the other hand, we also heard rumours that top four carriers of US are planning to stop sales of Galaxy Note 7 if exploded units are replaced ones. The AT&T is already allowing Galaxy Note 7 owners to swap in their Note 7 with any other smartphones available in stock.
To make sure, people don’t lose hopes Samsung just released a Galaxy S8 teaser to keep their fans eyes on upcoming flagship. Thanks to the latest teaser, it is now confirmed that Galaxy S8 announcement will be at next unpacked event which is scheduled on February 26th at MWC 2017 event in Barcelona.
To regain consumers trust, it won’t be enough for Samsung to release teasers of upcoming flagship. The main aim of this teaser is to shift focus on new flagship than the current Galaxy Note 7. If newly replaced units are as dangerous as the original units, it will not only effect upcoming flagship but Samsung will have to spend years to convince Smartphone buyers that their smartphones are safe to use. However, at the moment all focus is on the latest flagship disaster.
