We’ve heard everything there is to hear about the disaster that was the Galaxy Note 7. From the explosions, fires, damages, and stories of Samsung attempting to keep incidents under wraps, and now scalpers are still selling the device in Hong Kong. All of this led to rumors and reports suggesting that Samsung would be killing off the Galaxy Note lineup of devices, leaving us with just the Galaxy S series for flagship devices.

However, after it was reported that Samsung would be offering a new upgrade program for Galaxy Note 7 owners, the company inadvertently confirmed the plans for the Galaxy Note 8. The upgrade program will allow customers to upgrade from their Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge to either the Galaxy S8 or Note 8. Customers will have to only pay half the price of the current device before being able to exchange them.

There are also rumors that Samsung will be offering owners of the Note 7 the ability to upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or Note 8, without paying a dime. It’ll be interesting to see where Samsung goes from here, but here’s to hoping that things get turned around, and we can all move past this.
