We previously heard a rumor that Samsung would start to sell a refurbished version of their Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.
The company has to recall the device after a number of handsets caught fire due to problems with the batteries, the handsets were recalled twice and Samsung then cancelled the device.
Samsung has now confirmed that a refurbished version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be sold in some countries.
“The objective of introducing refurbished devices is solely to reduce and minimize any environmental impact,” Samsung told The Verge in a statement. It also hinted that the phone may be renamed entirely when more details are unveiled. “The product details including the name, technical specification and price range will be announced when the device is available. Samsung will not be offering refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices for rent or sale in the US.”
As we can see from the statement that was given to The Verge, Samsung will not be offering the handset in the US.
