When Samsung officially unveiled the problems that had caused the explosions of a large number of Samsung Galaxy Note 7, it seemed that news was the endpoint of that terminal and that we would never speak of him again. But it seems that the soap opera has had a spin-off of a single chapter, since it seems that finally confirms the news that published last month the Reuters news agency, stating that Samsung may have in mind to launch the leftover units Of the Galaxy Note 7 tests to the market as a reconditioned device.
According to the Korean media HankYung, the company will start selling the refurbished Galaxy Note 7, once the battery has been replaced by a more secure and will not cause explosions of any kind. After several months of research, Samsung found out what were the problems of the two sets of Galaxy Note 7 that launched to the market, so these devices should be 100% safe. These devices will not reach either the United States or Europe, due to the blockade that the regulators imposed on this terminal. Where they will be available will be in India and Vietnam.
According to this publication, Samsung has just over 2.5 million units of the Galaxy Note 7, after using about 20,000 to perform the different tests to find out what was the reason for the explosions of this terminal. The reconditioned devices will have a different back cover than the original with a battery that could range from 3,000 mAh to 3,200 mAh. The reason behind the back cover is logical, since having to replace the battery the Korean company was not willing to increase the investment in this terminal by putting it in a production line that is dedicated to replace only the battery.
