Original and refurbished Galaxy Note 7 both receive Wi-Fi certification on Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung discontinued the original Galaxy Note 7 last year and after months of rumors that it would launch a refurbished version, the company confirmed last month that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is going to be sold in select markets.

Samsung is yet to confirm the markets where the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will be offered, whether it’s going to be sold under a different moniker, if it’s going to have a smaller battery and how much it’s going to cost.

The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 bears model number SM-N935S and it’s not at all surprising to see it receive its Wi-Fi certification on Android 7.0 Nougat. The letter “S” denotes that this variant is likely meant for South Korea.

However, what’s interesting to note is that the original Galaxy Note 7 with model number SM-N930F has also received the same certification.

Bear in mind that this is a discontinued device and it would obviously be a pointless exercise to prepare a major update for a handset that has been taken off of the market.

Perhaps Samsung is preparing this update to essentially kill all remaining original Galaxy Note 7 handsets before it comes out with the refurbished version. It can’t be said for sure as this is just speculation.

Hopefully, the reason behind this will be revealed soon. Samsung is yet to confirm when it will reveal more details about the refurbished Galaxy Note 7.
