Samsung is finally resurrecting its explosive last year’s flagship Galaxy Note 7 and will relaunch it this Friday.
The refurbished smartphone will be launched with a new name Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition. It was previously expected to hit the market in June but the company has revealed that it will be launching it on 7th July instead.
Last year, the company recalled around 3 million Note 7 phones after their batteries started to explode. After carrying out a detailed analysis, the company declared that the batteries, sourced from two different suppliers, were to blame.
After the mega-scandal, Samsung needed to contain the environmental fallout from its failed Note 7 devices. In March, Samsung relayed that it was considering to sell the refurbished phones again in selected markets this year.
The Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition 2017 will be keeping all the components of its predecessor but will have a new 3200 mAh battery that will be placed after going through Samsung’s new 8-point safety check.
As we previously reported, the refurbished smartphone will be launched in South Korea. Reportedly, the company is collaborating with three mobile carriers, SK Telecom, LGU +, and KT to release the refurbished smartphones.
This year, Samsung is moving forward from its last year losses and after its mega launch of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, it is going to release the new addition to the company’s Note series, Galaxy Note 8.
