After the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco previous year, many of us wondered what Samsung was likely to do with the handsets. Samsung had to recall the handsets as a part of a safety procedure. The company also had a hard time to recall all the devices because many of the customers wouldn’t give up on their sexy looking beast. It was one of the greatest loss that the company has gone through and the efforts from Samsung to take responsibility of the Note 7 disaster was worth praising.
However, after more than eight months of the initial launch, Galaxy Note 7 is expected to reborn sometime around next month. Samsung is all set to release the refurbished model of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with a bit lower price and a safer battery. The Note 7 has recently passed through FCC certification which brings the device closer to the launch date. However, the phone is likely to be launched only in South Korea for now.
Unlike the previous exploding batteries, Samsung has switched to a 3,200mAh battery on the handset. The previous Note 7 packs a slightly bigger 3,500mAh battery. As for now, other features and hardware remains the same in the new refurbished model. The official pricing of the refurbished handset is not out yet but there are few leak sources. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might be priced at around $620 which is $250 cheaper than the original Note 7. However, this is not the official news from the company.
