Samsung has been rushing to get non-explosive Note7 devices to affected customers, but everyone else will have to wait a bit longer. VentureBeat has obtained a planning document pointing to October 21 as the official Note7 relaunch in the United States. That's a whole two months after the original release, August 19.
It's incredibly difficult to see the Note7 becoming a success for Samsung. While initial reviews were positive (including our own), it will be a long time before Samsung can shake exploding phones from its public image. The recent release of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has no doubt pulled many potential buyers over to Apple's camp, and the LG V20 is expected to be released the same day as the Note7 relaunch.
