Samsung is doing all it can to make the mess that was the Galaxy Note 7 disappear. They will have an upgrade program that will allow Galaxy Note 7 owners upgrade their devices to a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 at a discounted rate. While there hasn't been an official announcement, this is confirmation that the Note series will live on, despite problems.

The deal, so far, is limited to customers in South Korea, and it is unknown whether the launch will extend into the US or other markets. 

According to Reuters, consumers will only have to pay 50% of the cost of the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge when they return their recalled Note 7s. All of this, of course, won't be possible until the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 becomes available.

This is likely going to be Samsung's plan to encourage Galaxy Note 7 users to turn their phones in as well as stay loyal to the brand, especially when many people are switching over to the iPhone 7. It is expected that the Galaxy S8 will launch in February or March and the Galaxy Note 8 will be released late summer 2017, according to ZDNet.

For those in the promo area, the sale will only last until November 30, 2016.

In the United States, Samsung is offering Note 7 owners a $100 bill credit if they purchase another phone and $25 for those who plan to purchase another brand.

There are very few details revealed about the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy Note 8. The Note is expected to have a speaker in the S Pen and the S8 will have a 4K curved Super AMOLED display. LG will be making the batteries, which will hopefully be a lot more successful than the current model.
