Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 2017 With Smaller Battery Leaks Online
After the confirmation that Samsung will sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7, an image of the supposed recycled device surfaces in Asia. It was just only a couple of weeks ago when the company revealed its recycling plans for the recalled Galaxy Note 7. Refurbishing the device is just a fraction of the plan. Samsung is also salvaging usable parts as part of the recycling program.
As far as the availability details of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is concerned, the company has not relayed any specificities yet. The only thing Samsung said is that the availability of the device will depend on markets' regulations. However, early predictions say that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will only hit Asia and some of the European countries.
The leaked refurbished Note 7 image came from a Vietnamese site, thus increasing the belief that the phone will largely hit Asia. Among the few things that were revealed by the leak is the refurbished phone's new battery. As per Phone Arena, the refurbished Note 7 has a 3200 mAh battery. This is a tad smaller than the 3500 mAh battery of the original Note 7.
It was also said that the 2017 edition of the phone will be called the Galaxy Note 7R, with the identifier "R" standing for "refurbished". While Samsung has already confirmed the arrival of the 2017 Note 7 devices, the company did not reveal its specs. Their post only said that specs and other specificities regarding the Galaxy Note 7 will only be revealed once the phone becomes available.
Needless to say, the release of the refurbished Note 7 will not affect the arrival of the Galaxy Note 8. As soon as the S8 series was revealed, rumors about the new 2017 Note device already started surfacing. An image leak has even appeared online. Some experts believe that this is the reason why the refurbished Note 7 devices won't hit North America because that market has already moved on and is prepping up for the Galaxy Note 8's arrival.
