Galaxy Note 7R to hit the shelves by the end of May or early June


Last updated: May 11th, 2017 at 10:12 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 7R could launch in South Korea as early as this month, reveals The Investor. Citing Chosun Ilbo, the publication reported that Samsung plans to apply for safety certification for the refurbished variant of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 in the not-too-distant future, and seeing as the process can take up to one month, we should expect the handset to hit the shelves by the end of May or early June.

A recent hands-on image points towards the Galaxy Note 7R sporting an identical design to its predecessor, but shipping with a smaller 3,200mAh battery and Android 7.0 pre-installed, as opposed to a 3,500mAh cell and running Android 6.0.1 out of the box. It’s also believed to carry a price tag of 700,000 won ($620), which is around 300,000 won ($266) cheaper than the original Galaxy Note 7.
