It has been a couple of weeks since there was a rumor that Samsung would release refurbished Galaxy Note7s and sell them at certain places except the United States and India. Currently, a few photos have been leaked, which may prove that the refurbished smartphones are being manufactured. As a result, we can rely on the source of information to a certain extent.
Unlike the code number N930 of the original product; the new smartphone has been given a series of model numbers, which is specifically the SM-N935 code number, according to the attesting of the settings menu. The leaked photos also pointed out that the battery unit for the refurbished model would be more compact. To be more specific, refurbished Galaxy Note7s is going to feature 3,200mAh battery capacity in comparison with the 3,500mAh battery of Note7 v1.0. With the quality assurance process by Samsung, the refurbished models are expected to meet all customers’ demands in general. Also, the company is hopeful that there will be no regretful accidents to occur.
Within this plan, Samsung has intention of recycling semiconductors together with camera modules in units. In the meanwhile, the company would like to dispose unwanted components properly.
In reality, due to the recall of the original one followed by a halt of manufacturing, its internal margins appear to be very tight. Moreover, it is also said that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 model will run on Android 7.0 Nougat; whereas, the specs will not be different from the initial phone. Hence, it is undoubted that the refurbished Note7s will be significantly cheaper than its original model which is at a price of $850.
Nonetheless, all the details about where and when the refurbished Note7 is for sale are still being kept secret.
