Global Demand For The Galaxy Note 7 Delays Malaysia Launch


The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is finally here. Well, it is here in the sense that it has been announced and that it is now available to pre-order in various regions of the world. With the expected available to buy date looming and a number of deals already surfacing for those who take advantage of the pre-order phrase, it is already looking as though the Galaxy Note 7 is going to be another hit in the Samsung stable. In fact, if recent reports are anything to go by, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is already looking to be a greater pre-order hit than the Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge). With some reports detailing the difference in pre-orders is to the tune of nearly twice the number of Galaxy S7 pre-orders so far.

While this will be good news for Samsung, it will also be something that the company was likely banking on and therefore, they are likely to be prepared adequately for the number of pre-orders which will need to be fulfilled. Although, whether they are completely prepared is another thing altogether. Reports are now coming through suggesting that some regions are likely to see a delay in Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders being fulfilled, simply due to the number of pre-orders coming through on a worldwide scale. The latest of which is Malaysia.

According to reports, emails are now being sent out from the Malaysian arm of Samsung to various media outlets and confirming that Malaysia's launch of the Galaxy Note 7 is being pushed back to September, a month later than when the device had been expected to be available in the country. The reason being given by Samsung Malaysia is clear with the email citing "Samsung is experiencing a global constraint in meeting the demands of market launches". In short, it is in too much demand worldwide to be able to fulfill all pre-orders during the originally expected time-frame. Samsung does confirm those who have already pre-ordered in Malaysia are likely to receive their orders in due course and on time, but it seems a delay will be in place for those who place a pre-order going forward, as well as for the general availability of the Galaxy Note 7 in Malaysia. Below is a copy of the reported email being sent out.
