Samsung plans to sell Galaxy Note 7 units as refurbished

Posted March 28, 2017

Samsung claims that 97 percent of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones sold in South Korea have been returned to the company.

As for the refurbished idea, well, if that's really what Samsung wants to do, so be it.

Battery life will be a potential concern with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, which will sport 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries respectively, which is no larger than the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge batteries, despite their bigger displays. You'd think Samsung would be trying to do everything it could to get us to all forget about the Note 7.

As for the recycling of the Galaxy Note 7 phones, Samsung says that components such as semiconductors and camera modules will be detached by companies specializing in such services and used for test sample production purposes.

House returning to Green Bay, Elliott signs one year deal
House was recently released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, who signed him to a four-year, $24.5 million contract in 2015. Tripp signed with Green Bay on December 14, appearing in two regular-season games and all three postseason contests.

Here is a recap of all the Galaxy S8 rumours that have surfaced so far that gave us a clear picture of what the Galaxy S8 would look like and more. The new device is expected to boast the latest in smartphone technology and feature major design innovations. Instead, it's releasing statements about how the spit-shone phone might be sold in certain markets. The European model will also apparently be powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 8895 octa-core chipset with other models being powered by the Snapdragon 835. A new version of the Gear VR headset is expected to be released alongside the Galaxy S8 and S8+. It is compatible with Galaxy S7 series, S6 series and Note 5. Customers will also not be able to use the Galaxy Note 7 unless they install the mandatory update. Originally, the smartphone featured a hefty 3,500 mAh battery.

The fingerprint sensor has been relocated to the rear (alongside the rear camera) and will support gesture recognition including programmable gestures for opening applications.

Samsung didn't offer a timeline or price for the refurbished units, but keep an eye out in the coming months. We've seen this before on Google's devices, but it makes sense that Samsung would implement this same method given the fact that the home button has been removed.

We'll know the truth of the Galaxy S8 when it's announced on March 29, but for now, battery concerns aside, it sounds like it should be a real crowd-pleaser.
