After Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 due to faulty batteries, it had officially announced that it would release a refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 in some markets, depending on regulatory approvals and local demands. Some new variants of the phablet have now passed through FCC’s certification process, bringing the official launch closer than ever.
Three variants of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 – SM-N935K, SM-N935L, and SM-N935S – have received FCC certification to be launched in the Korean market. The SM-N935S is believed to be the SK Telecom variant of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7. The SM-N935K and the SM-N935L could be launched on KT and LG Uplus (LG U +) networks, respectively.
This new variant of the Galaxy Note 7 is believed to come with a smaller 3,200 mAh battery and Android 7.0. Moreover, it might come with a completely new name and price. Purported images of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N935) were leaked last month, and the device is expected to go on sale by the end of June 2017.
