There had been a lot of rumors cooking up on the refurbished Galaxy Note7, but a couple of weeks ago Samsung officially confirmed that it would be doing its best to recover the usable components from the Note7 and will launch refurbished version (maybe) depending on the market conditions.
Refurbished Galaxy Note7 Live Images
According to the live images leaked, the rumored refurbished Note7 will come with a different model number (as per the leaked image) i.e SM-N935, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and 3,200mAh battery, very much like the rumored earlier that the refurbished Note7 would feature a smaller battery than that of the old Note7.
We need to witness whether the reduced battery size will hold up to real-life usage. Though this leak looks pretty legit (and if it is legit) there are no details on when and where the phone will be made available or whether the refurbished unit will actually go on sale or not.
The rumors/report suggested that the refurbished models would launch in India and Vietnam, though the Samsung India employee denied saying it is a rubbish rumor, but the Samsung VN (a Vietnamese fan site) suggest that it could on sale very soon.
It’s not surprising, as Samsung assembles its smartphones in Vietnam. So, relaunching the Note7 in the Vietnam will be easy when compared with other markets. Will Samsung take government permission for selling the refurbished Galaxy Note7? We have to wait until anything on this goes official.
