As of this writing, there has been no mention on what these specific handset models will be and how much they will be sold off to consumers. In addition, there is no word on which markets these devices will be available.
It's expected that this new venture planned by Samsung would turn into a success, especially since many people are attracted to the idea of getting a refurbished premium device at a lesser price compared to its launch. With the $800 price tag on highly praised devices such as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7, it would be exciting for users to be able to use the device at a lesser price shortly since they get launched to the public.
This resale program being spearheaded by Samsung is said to be an effort by the South Korean manufacturer to help sustain its mobile business. At the same time, it is a way for the company to maximize its products' cost efficiency and keep its operating margins over 10 percent.
It's important to note, however, that this is not an official report from Samsung. When asked for a comment on the matter, a spokesperson for the company said that they (Samsung) does not comment on rumors or speculations. If ever the reports prove to be true, this could mean great news for the company as more people will be able to purchase a high-end Samsung smartphone at a cheaper price.
