You might have heard the rumors that Samsung is apparently considering refurbishing the Note 7 and selling them again. It turns out the rumors were true as Samsung has recently announced their plans to sell refurbished Note 7 handsets. Given that apart from their exploding batteries, the Note 7 is an amazing handset, we guess some of you guys might be pretty excited by this.
However we have some bad news and that is according to a statement issued to The Verge by Samsung, it seems that the company will not be selling these devices in the US. The company stated that additional details such as availability and pricing will be announced at a later date, but if there is one thing they can confirm it is that it won’t be available in the US.
The statement reads, “The objective of introducing refurbished devices is solely to reduce and minimize any environmental impact. The product details including the name, technical specification and price range will be announced when the device is available. Samsung will not be offering refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices for rent or sale in the US.”
Is this a bummer? We suppose it is, especially since we can only imagine that it will most likely retail for less than what the Note 7 sold for. However if money isn’t really an issue, Samsung did previously confirm that they are working on the Note 8 so you could always wait for that instead.
