    It was first reported earlier this week that Samsung is preparing a new compensation program for Galaxy Note 7 owners who have already been through a lot over the past couple of months. The report suggested that Samsung will offer cash discounts on the purchase of its future flagship to those customers. Samsung is already providing monetary incentives to get people to exchange the Galaxy Note 7 for one of its other devices. A report out of Korea claims that the new compensation program will allow Galaxy Note 7 customers to get the Galaxy S8 for free, or by paying a nominal amount.

    According to the report, this program will be open to those who have already exchange their Galaxy Note 7 for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge. They will then be able to exchange that handset for the Galaxy S8 free when it comes out early next year. The cost of the exchange will either be zero of nominal, it’s reportedly going to depend upon if it’s the customer’s first or second exchange of the Galaxy Note 7.

    “The new compensation program is designed to make it easier for those who exchange their Galaxy Note 7 with existing Samsung smartphones, to shift into our next model coming in next year,” a Samsung official has been quoted as saying in the report. How Samsung will actually process these claims remains a mystery right now, official details are slim right now so until more is said about this by the company itself, I’ll continue to be skeptical about such a compensation program for Galaxy Note 7 owners.

    I doubt Note owners want an s8 any more than they want an s7.

    That's pretty awesome if true. However, I'm not gonna buy a new S7 edge just based on that. Got a refurbished one so I can just use my upgrade next year when the S8 comes out. I have a feeling that this is gonna be a nightmare to get done. Probably won't get it the day it comes out

    I had an S7E before the N7 and stopped using it in favor of my Note Edge because I missed S-Pen functionality.

    Cheers,

    RIP N7

    Nobody wants a s8. They need to be more specific. Is it eligible for the s pen variant as well?

    I returned the Note 7 during the first recall for the S7 Edge. I guess I could still get a free S8 then too?

    There probably won't be a note 8
    Most likely they'll come out with a s8 and s8 pro or plus with 5.7" to 6 " screen and s pen functionality
    So you see.. You do want an s8 and so do I... And so do... most note 7 users

    That's what I'm worried about. A free s8, but the standard size small screen one and not the S8 Edge with larger screen. If it is a smaller screen I might take the free phone and sell it and get the Edge.

    I hope this is true, I'll be all over it. I'd actually be very happy with Samsung if they did this.

    I don't like the S7 or the 7edge. It may seem like a downgrade to some people but I made the switch to the Note5! I love the Note series and it's Spen. I k of the phone is a yr old but I like it. Those that chose a different Samsung should get the same benefits. I had played extensively with them while I still had the Note 4 and couldn't upgrade to either. It's why I chose to hold out for the Note7 and we can't have anymore.
    Note 5 is a great device and not a letdown e copy for no SD card slot. I am switching to the 64gig..promised since my carrier was out of it. Bottom line is no one should be dissed by Samsung on a deal when they are still using a Samsung device and being loyal to the brand

    I definitely take this with a grain of salt. It sounds like people just being hopeful and making up rumors.

    If this is true, whatever they are giving away....users that went through 2 recalls and jumped shipped after should still get one. Heck, users that jumped ship after the first recall should get one. And whether you jumped shipped or not should not be a deciding factor to get a discount, as long as you owned a Note 7 and went through the recall....that should be the deciding factor. But I won't believe this one until Samsung gives a press conference on it....lol.

    What about people like me who traded it in for an S7 Edge after the first recall? I'm glad I did so I didn't have to go through this mess twice. It was already enough of a disaster trying to get a refund for the first one.

    Even if it is for a regular S8 you can always sell the phone and buy the Note later.

    I also wonder if it will be directly from Samsung the phone? Or do they send you a voucher to go to your carrier?

    If I were Samsung and was going to do this I would do it for the ones that stayed with Samsung. It's an extra thank you for sticking with us and not bailing. The ones that bailed were taken care of with the recall

    If this is true you can bet Samsung loyalty will be a must to take advantage of this.
