The company is reportedly going to launch the Black Onyx Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea next month. There has been significant demand for this color already and Samsung is believed to have excluded it from the range of colors offered in Korea initially to have something fresh to present to the public when the new iPhone arrives. Samsung always has different color strategies for different markets. With the Galaxy Note 7, it’s holding off on the Gold Platinum for the United States, Silver Titanium for China and the beautiful Coral Blue for India.
Sales of the Galaxy Note 7 have been suspended globally following the recall announcement but Samsung is expected to resume sales in a couple of weeks. It remains to be seen when these color options will be launched in these lucrative markets but it’s too soon to say whether or not they will achieve the aim that Samsung is hoping for.
