Galaxy Note 7: Samsung set to sell refurbished models

If true, we expect plenty of consumers to be interested in an officially refurbished Galaxy Note 7 at a discounted rate, especially coming straight from Samsung.

Samsung might be preparing to resurrect the Galaxy Note 7 handset using lower capacity batteries, according to reports on Tuesday. Inspecting closely, one could make out the tablet will come with a glass body at the front and back panel which is line with previous rumours depicting the design language of the upcoming tablet.

Engadget remarks the South Korean heavyweight has approximately 2.5 million Note 7 handsets in store after sacrificing 20,000 to determine the cause of the problem. Initially, the company recalled a couple of units, and then again they started selling them. Now, in what appears to be a re-appearance of something that popped up some time towards the end of past year, fresh reports claim that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could make a new start as a refurbished version.

Investigations found that the battery in the first batch was too small for the phone, resulting in the battery's "negative electrode" being "deflected".

Samsung is rumored to have more than two million Galaxy Note 7 devices remaining, so it's not a surprise that the company would want to find something to do with them rather than just disposing of them.

It's believed that the reconfigured Galaxy Note 7 will come with a much smaller battery, in order to mitigate against issues with exploding power units.

Samsung recalled the Note 7 units past year just a couple of months after the official announcement.

Samsung Galaxy S9 is likely to run Android 8.0 out-of-the-box, will feature the digital assistant Bixby and a high-spec camera.

While the original Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to be priced at Rs. 59,990 in India, there are speculations that this refurbished variant will have an affordable price tag.
