Running high on confidence after the Galaxy S8 / S8+ success, Samsung is planning to bring back the Galaxy Note 7 in the market. In fact, its release might be just round the corner, as per a new report which states that Samsung is gearing up to launch refurbished Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea in June.
Priced at $620 (700,000 won) which is $250 cheaper than its original price of $870 (988,900 won), the Galaxy Note 7R will be officially unveiled in LG’s parent country by June end.
The refurbished phablet – which could be called the Galaxy Note 7R – will be available through all major carriers in Korea: SKT, KT, and LG.
The news was somewhat anticipated as Galaxy Note 7R was recently spotted on WiFi Alliance revealing Samsung’s plans to bring it to the market much sooner than later. The refurbished Note 7 units will carry the same specifications as the original one except for two features — battery and software.
Past leaks have suggested that Galaxy Note 7R will include 3200mAH battery, which has been downgraded from 3500mAH as found in original ones. Also, the software on board the refurbished units will be upgraded to Nougat from Marshmallow. As of now, it is unclear in which markets, other than Korea, Samsung plans to release Galaxy Note 7R.
