Well, that didn’t take long, did it. Only a few hours after Samsung announced its headline-grabbing near-free offer giving iPhone users the chance to try out its latest Galaxy devices for a month, the Korean company said Friday that “overwhelming demand” has led to all the allotted phones being snapped up.
Of course, the true popularity of the deal is impossible to judge without knowing how many of the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus handsets Samsung set aside for the offer – we’ve asked them to furnish us with a figure and will update if we hear back.
The Seoul-based company said on the deal’s webpage that it was “temporarily” out of devices, indicating that more phones are on the way, so if you’re interested in putting your iPhone aside for a month to see how one of Samsung’s rival devices compares, best you check the webpage over the coming days.
Called the “Ultimate Test Drive,” the offer is an attempt by Samsung to persuade iPhone users to ditch their Apple device in favor of one of its latest handsets.
Costing only a dollar, the deal lets you try the Galaxy phone for 30 days. After that, you simply hand it back, as the tech firm hopes, declare your love for the Galaxy handset and sign up with Samsung.
The Ultimate Test Drive comes just a few weeks before Apple is expected to reveal the sequels to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. For all the latest news on what to expect with the refreshed devices, be sure to check out DT’s dedicated news page.
