Soon after the launch of Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung has silently announced that the customers who have pre-booked the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will get a free Gear VR. The new Gear VR originally costs Rs. 7290. It is also offering Rs. 3300 approx. ($50) worth Oculus content voucher.
The company has released a statement saying it has delayed the sales of Galaxy Note 7 in India due to the recent reports of battery related issues. Customers can avail this special offer once they receive the Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung has not announced when the smartphone will be on sale in India. The company has taken this move to keep the consumers happy despite of the delay in the delivery. Samsung is aware that Note 7's only competitor iPhone 7 is now released and it has all the potential to steal its customers.
