According to a report from mydrivers, Samsung is planning to release the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 to market by June 2017. Also, the leak suggests that Samsung will sell the phone in select markets such as India, Africa, Vietnam, etc. Samsung will be taking utmost care this time around before releasing the phone.

It was earlier reported that Samsung is downgrading the battery capacity of the phone and the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 might pack a battery cell of 3000mAh to 3200mAh, but there’s no final evidence regarding the same. Nonetheless, people will still be afraid to purchase the phone, but the leak suggests that Samsung is adding an extra level of security not to create any mess after the release.

Coming to the pricing of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7, it is expected to ship with just three to five percent cheaper cost than the original Note 7. This essentially means that the phone would still cost more than Rs. 50,000 in India. Nevertheless, at that whopping price tag, no one will get the Note 7 for sure. All these are just rumors and the final pricing might differ. So, take this news with a pinch of salt.
