galaxy-note-7-design_10-silver-gold-frontWith the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 being recalled over its exploding batteries, we’re sure confidence in the company and its products has been shaken, but at the same time we’re sure that there are some who wouldn’t mind getting their hands on the phone all the same. So the question is, when will sales of the Note 7 resume?

A report from yesterday revealed that sales of the phone in South Korea would resume on the 28th of September. We assumed that this could apply to the US, or at least a date that’s close, but it seems that we might be wrong. A report on VentureBeat by Evan Blass has revealed that sales of the Note 7 in the US might only resume come 21st of October.

This is according to a planning document that they have obtained that revealed the date. What this means is that for an entire month, would-be Note 7 customers in the US will not be able to purchase the phone, thus allowing Samsung’s competition to gain ground on them, such as Apple whose new iPhones have recently gone on sale.

Samsung has yet to officially confirm when the Note 7 would be going back on sale, but for existing customers who have returned their phones, it seems that you guys will most likely be getting your replacement units before sales resume.
