We all know the rollercoaster ride that the Galaxy Note7’s short life has been – announced after great anticipation, sales surpassing initial predictions leading to delays on some markets, only to be halted globally in light of reports of exploding batteries, followed by a worldwide recall of units already sold.

Samsung gives away free Gear VR to compensate delayed Galaxy Note7 in India

India was not in the first wave of launches, and just as pre-orders were about to ship on September 2, the recall was official, so the Indian release was pushed back. Samsung is trying its best to make up for the delay with a couple of freebies announced in a statement on its official website, and publicized on Facebook.

So, for one, those who pre-booked a Galaxy Note7 will be getting a Gear VR headset free of charge. Originally that was going to cost them INR 1,990 ($30), still a lot cheaper that the regular price for the accessory – INR 7,290 ($110). Free is always better than cheap, though. But there’s more. Samsung will be throwing in an INR 3,300 ($50) voucher towards Oculus content for you to enjoy on that free Gear VR of yours.

  11. Oven, 1 hour agoYes, more than 35 Note 7 blew up after they released.actually they didn’t blow up, it’s combustion process that burns them and causes fire, not an explosion… for example the fire extinguisher joke applies but not the granade one (though it can be used as a molotov)

  12. Estimu, 33 minutes agoactually they didn’t blow up, it’s combustion process that burns them and causes fire, not an … moreWouldn’t try that though, the molotov would just blow up in your face, it’s too unpredictable.
