Ever since Samsung decided to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices last month, we knew it won’t take too long for reports and speculations to start making rounds. As per the recent report, Samsung’s refurbished Galaxy Note 7, reportedly known as the Galaxy Note 7R, will go on sale in South Korea via three carriers starting June. Samsung, however, hasn’t made an official announcement so far.
Samsung is highly unlikely to sell recycled Note 7 devices in the US given this is what it said last month: “Samsung will not be offering refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices for rent or sale in the US,” the company said last month.
To keep things safe this time, Samsung is said to pack a smaller 3,200mAh battery instead of 3,500mAh in the original Note 7. It could be priced somewhere around 700,000 won, which converts roughly at Rs 39,735.
Specs-wise, the original Galaxy Note 7 has a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Exynos 8890 octa-core chip, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, 12MP rear camera, 5Mp selfie camera, fingerprint sensor, Iris scanner, and USB Type-C port.
In other news, Samsung will soon unveil the whole new Galaxy Note 8, successor to last year’s Note 7. It will reportedly be the company’s first dual-camera handset. It is tipped to feature 3x optical zoom, 12-megapixel; wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13-megapixel telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual OIS.
