Samsung finally confirmed that they would actually be selling a refurbished version of the Note 7, after denying reports that had surfaced earlier.
“The objective of introducing refurbished devices is solely to reduce and minimize any environmental impact. The product details including the name, technical specification and price range will be announced when the device is available. Samsung will not be offering refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices for rent or sale in the US.” Said Samsung back in March, 2017.
The refurbished Note 7 will unfortunately not be available globally but instead will only go on sale in South Korea and only 300,000 units will be sold out of the three to four million Note 7s that were recalled, according to a report by ET News.
It has also been revealed that the refurb will be powered by a 3200mAh battery a smaller battery compared to the 3500mAh battery that was powering the ill-fated Note 7. All other specification remain the same as the original Galaxy Note 7.
The report also reveals that the refurb will retail as the “Samsung Galaxy Note 7R” with the code number (SM-N935) and will be priced at approximately $620, which is $266 less that the original Galaxy Note 7.
