Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Would Be Released in Emerging Markets ?

A report from Hankyung.com inferred that, Samsung might start selling refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units with 3000 ~ 3200 mAh batteries (smaller than 3500 mAh batteries in the original Galaxy Note 7) in emerging markets starting June 2017.

Last month, Samsung revealed the final results of its in-depth Galaxy Note 7 investigation, that faulty batteries were the cause of the phablet catching fire and even exploding in some cases. This time Samsung has done some refurbishing on the Galaxy Note 7.

It is said that the refurbished device will have a new case, thus its design might be marginally different than the original model. All the other internals components such as the processor, memory, storage, camera, etc. are said to be entirely similar except for the battery.

Almost 98% of the 3.06 mil Galaxy Note 7 units it sold worldwide has been reportedly recovered. Selling a refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 will help Samsung to recover some losses, and solve the environmental issue related to disposing of electronic components.

Which countries will be importing the refurbished Galaxy Note 7?

What we can confirm for now is the refurbished units will not be sold in India, affirmed by a spokesperson for Samsung India.

Also, it was already emphasized in the report that Samsung won’t sell these refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units in North America or Europe as well. That leaves with only a handful of regions where it can go through.
