Samsung to Relaunch Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Models in South Korea

So it looks like Samsung is not putting the Galaxy Note 7 at rest. After confirming rumors that they will be selling refurbished versions of the device, the company is said to be gearing up for the release.

According to ETNews, Samsung is planning to launch refurbished versions of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea by the end of June. The controversial smartphone model is said to be called as the Galaxy Note 7 R and will be equipped with virtually similar features as the original model. This means the device will still have the same 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560x1440 resolution, 4GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The big difference for the Galaxy Note 7 R is that it will be equipped with a 3,200 mAh batter; a smaller battery compared to the 3,500 mAh battery on the original model. Considering the battery was suspected as the reason behind the overheating issue that caused Samsung to recall the device twice, it is only best that they do something to fix it.

When the Galaxy Note 7 R launches, it will be priced at 700,000 won ($616), a price drop from the original 989,890 won ($870) when the device first launched. There's no word on whether or not Samsung intends to sell the Galaxy Note 7 R outside South Korea, however. But for those in the US, Samsung has ratified rumors that the refurbished models will not be available for rent or sale anywhere in the country.

The big question that remains though: will people still be willing to trust the Galaxy Note 7 R?

  1. No.

    I wouldn't trust these phones until 6 months after their re-release.

    If they haven't killed anyone by then, I'd still wait another 6 months.

  2. Reminds me of a big pharaceutical company withdrew their drug in the USA because of controversies but they took the unused stock and sold it in other countries even with their known defect. Sure they are refurbing it but just goes to show you Corporations will do anything to make money no matter how rich they are. I would LAUGH if the Note 7 R's start blowing up in South Korea, Samsung's Home turf. Stay tuned I guess...

  3. They are preparing for North Korean attacking. However, I heard they will only sell 500,000 devices in South Korea.
