South Korean carrier SK Telecom is now offering the Galaxy S6 for free to users who still own the original Galaxy S from 2010. It will also offer a free Galaxy S6 to customers who have bought every model of the Samsung flagship since the Galaxy S.
On top of that, the carrier will also let these customers make free phone calls for a full year, further rewarding customers for their continued loyalty with Samsung. It is said that over 17,000 Galaxy S smartphones are still in use in South Korea.
It is said that the country has 1,600 users who bought all 13 models of the Galaxy S series since its launch. There are reportedly 2,400 users who have bought more than 10 models of the Galaxy flagship.
It will be interesting to see if Samsung will reward customer loyalty of people outside South Korea with a similar promo. But at this point, it seems to be a Korea only offer.
