Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 to go on sale at the end of June

Samsung will launch a refurbished variant of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea through three carriers at the end of June, reveals ET News. It’s believed that 300,000 of the recalled three-to-four million units will go on sale in the region, and will sport a new 3,200mAh battery instead of the 3,500mAh cell found on board its predecessor.

While the firm is still negotiating branding and pricing, the publication has reason to believe that the handset will be called the Galaxy Note 7 R (SM-N935) and will carry a price tag of around 700,000 won ($620), approximately 300,000 won ($266) less than the original Galaxy Note 7, which was priced at 989,890 won ($878) when it hit the shelves back in September, 2016.

Samsung should also drop the “7” number to avoid confusion and distrust by transport authorities. Just call it Note R or Note 5 2017.

£600 for a second hand blow up phone . Called it.
Wonder if you can fly with these … I mean its still a note 7…
For £600 isnt it just better to wait for the note 8 ?
If youre going for a pocket grenade the lastest version will always give you the biggest bang for your buck…

At the present currency exchange $620 would be around £485 here in the UK which would be a very appealing price but I doubt Samsung will play by the currency exchange so it’s very likely to sell it here (if it did) at £600-620 unfortunately.

If this phone will be available in UK I would like to pay even £600.

Hmmm £550 should be the sweet spot. However I’d rather pay £600 for this refurbished Note 7 than £690 for the S8 or £790 for the S8+.
