The news has surfaced that Samsung has plans to introduce refurbished Galaxy Note 7 starting from June this year. Etnews.com, a Korean website, claims that such phones will be made available for sale at South Korea through three carriers.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had become a nightmare for the Korean tech giant last year with widespread incidents of battery blasts. In response company called back almost 3 to 4 million smartphones around the world.
The refurbished devices will be branded as Galaxy Note 7 R and the reported price of the phone is expected to be $620 (PKR 65,000). In the first batch, 300,000 phones are expected to go on sale.
The news also noted that the phones will have a smaller battery as compared to the original variant. The newly refurbished versions will have 3,200 mAh battery. The original variants had 3,500 mAh battery and due to difficulty in housing the battery under the phone, the whole explosion of phones fiasco happened.
There is no news Galaxy Note 7 R will be made available in Pakistan or not. But there is an expectation that the phone will make its way to Pakistan through unofficial means.
