Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Coming In June At A Reduced Price
Samsung seems to have redeemed themselves with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. In fact, the Galaxy S8 sold 30% more units than the Galaxy S7. Samsung appears to think this means customers have forgiven the company or their Note 7 phones exploding and later botched recall. According to Koren Media, Samsung will release the Note 7 in Korea by the end of June. The battery will be a bit smaller, a measure to prevent future explosions. Along with the smaller battery will come a lower price tag, around $620 USD.
It’s $250 off the initial price tag, something unsurprising considering it’s a refurbished unit. Considering these refurbished units are from the recall, Samsung will have a hard time selling these handsets to customers. There are still die hard Note 7 fans gunning for Samsung to release the Note 7 worldwide, an unlikely case.
Galaxy Note 7 refurbished units are getting re-released
The Note 7 shipped with a 3,500 mAh pack, this unit is expected to get 3,000 mAh only. While smaller, it’s still enough to get you through a solid day of usage. Th reputation of the Note line is in serious disarray, while Samsung has cleaned it’s proper name up quite a bit. The renders of the new Note 8, suggest Samsung will move forward on revamping the lineup. Although, the Galaxy S8+ is a larger 6.2-inch screen that you’d find on a Note phone. Any bigger of a screen could become hard to hold or even a bigger battery drain.
The demise of the Note 7 meant power users didn’t have a phone to use. The S-Pen is limited to some tablets and a laptop or two. The cornerstone device has and always been the Note lineup. Samsung will need to revise the Note and show they can stop the Note 7 from blowing up before they can get their next flagship device out. We’ll see what Samsung does this fall!
