A report hinted in the past that Samsung may start selling refurbished smartphones in the United States, which can be a good way to boost the earnings.
It turns out the report was correct, customers can now purchase refurbished smartphones directly from the Korean company in the United States.
The company mentioned that smartphones are refurbished by Samsung engineers and includes a new charger and headphones in the box. Additionally, the Korean company is offering a one-year warranty with the refurbished handsets.
The list of refurbished smartphones include the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge as well as the Galaxy Note 4.
So most of the handsets are high-end, but customers can save as much as $265 on refurbished units which is a pretty good saving, especially as you’re getting a one-year warranty from the company as well.
There’s one catch here, all refurbished units being sold by the company are tied to one of the carriers in the country — no unlocked pieces yet. It takes around ten days to ship the refurbished units.
