Galaxy Note7 now available in select countries, PH release moved

Samsung’s latest and greatest smartphone can now be yours if you live in the first 10 countries to get hold of the well-praised handset. Through a press release, the South Korean giant is proud to announce the commercial launch of the Galaxy Note7.

UPDATE: (08/19/16 8:05PM) Pre-orders and those availed via telco are not affected. General consumer launch got delayed due to stock issues.


Consumers from the US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, the UAE and, of course, South Korea may now possess the Galaxy Note7 through their respective stores and retailers.

As for us here in the Philippines, we have to wait a bit longer since the nationwide consumer launch that’s supposedly tomorrow got postponed. We were informed that it’s move to a later date sometime in September. When exactly? We can’t tell yet but we’ll keep you updated.

The smartphone has a suggested retail price of Php39,990 and comes bundled with a free new Gear VR headset.

    Mas marami pa bibili ng s7 pag in-announce na ang ip7 dahil madi-disappoint sila.

    Customs na naman siguro ito. Sana naman may irelease na white model ng s7 edge at note 7 sa pinas. Puro na lang kayo onyx black at gold samsung. Magbigay naman kayo ng coral blue at titanium s7 edge, kung walang coral blue e pass muna ako sa note 7.
