The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will be released in selected markets which include South Korea (of course) and some Asian countries. We expect that “some Asian countries” will include India as well. On the other hand, if you are living in the US, the Galaxy Note 7R is not coming to you.
SlashGear has already come up with the price i.e. 700,000 KRW (which roughly equals to Rs 39,711 or US$618). For the safety precaution, the company is said to downgrade the battery size from 3500mAh to 3200mAh or 3000mAh.
Recalling The Note 7 Fiasco
Just to recall the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was launched last year in August 2016, however, the company had to soon recall the device as it was catching fire due to an issue in the design as well as in the battery. People from several agencies claimed that the company attempted to put a bigger battery in the smallest possible frame compromising the space around the border of the battery.
This fiasco has burned a deep hole in company’s pocket, which estimates up to $2.8 billion and has broken the customer’s trust. Well, Samsung is winning back both with the release of Galaxy S8 and S8+ and will do the same when Note 7R launches. So, will you be buying Galaxy Note 7R? Let us know in the comment section below.
