Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones which were supposed to be shipping in India early this month, got delayed. Well, this delay was experienced worldwide as the company officially recalled the smartphones worldwide to avoid the accidents that were happening. So currently it is a complete mess as many users are simply cancelling the orders and moving on to other devices. So in this case, definitely the company had to do something about all this.

Samsung has decided to offer free Gear VR to owners who booked the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. And not just that, the company is also giving away 3,300 INR worth of Oculus voucher which is roughly about $50. Samsung officially acknowledged the Global recall issue that is currently going on. Samsung stated that they acknowledge the issues with the device and are doing their best to deal with it and serve the customers the best they can.

It is good to see that the company is offering all this as the customers patiently wait for their pre-booked devices. But at the same time, it should also be noted that it is the company’s fault as they should have checked for all the faulty devices thoroughly before making a final call on public release. But as of now, this is what we have and that’s the best that Samsung has to offer to their customers. Do make a note that the company has not mentioned any date as to when the devices will be shipped or when will the devices be available.

So meanwhile if are one of those who have pre-booked the device, then you are eligible for this and you shall be notified about the same soon. You can head over to their website or walk into a Samsung store for more details on this. Stay tuned for more details on this as we will update the story once we have more info.
