Samsung is yet to confirm the pricing and availability details for the refurbished Galaxy Note 7. The company confirmed a few months ago that it was going to release a refurbished version of its ill-fated flagship. It’s one of the ways that the company is going to cut down on environmental waste after the handset was discontinued last year. A new report has surfaced online giving us an idea of what this handset might cost.
Samsung is yet to confirm what this device is actually going to be called when it comes out. What we do know is that all of the specs will be the same and so will the design. The company will merely swap out the Galaxy Note 7’s battery for a smaller package. The original Galaxy Note 7 had a 3,500mAh battery.
It was the battery cell that caused the entire Galaxy Note 7 fiasco in the first place so Samsung is going to swap it out in the refurbished unit. According to reports, it’s going to be a 3,200mAh battery.
There have also been reports that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will actually be branded as the Galaxy Note FE. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note FE on July 7th. It may even come with Bixby.
As far as the price is concerned, the latest report suggests that it’s going to cost $700, which might be a bit too much to entice people to purchase a device that’s associated with spontaneous combustion.
