This is probably not surprising news, but Samsung has delayed the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 in Nigeria. The Note 7 launched in New York in August and was set to launch in Nigeria early this month, but there was that curious case of the exploding battery(s) and Samsung had to recall all Note 7 phones worldwide.

In a post on their Instagram page, Samsung advised all Note 7 owners in Nigeria to go to Samsung Service Centres for assistance on replacement programs. The phone hasn’t been released in Nigeria yet, but all Note 7 phones can be replaced no matter where they were bought.

Here’s the IG post –

Samsung Electronics West Africa Limited has announced postponement of the launch of Samsung new Galaxy Note7 in Nigeria. This is sequel to the postponement of sales of the device globally due to isolated battery cell problems. Although the Galaxy Note7 has not been released in Nigeria, current Galaxy Note7 users are kindly advised to visit the nearest Samsung Service Centre for immediate assistance about replacement program. All Galaxy Note7 purchased are eligible for replacement despite the original place of purchase. We acknowledge the inconvenience this may have caused in the market, but this is to ensure that Samsung continues to deliver the highest quality products to its customers. Samsung is completely committed to fixing this problem and ensuring the highest level of safety and satisfaction for its customers.
