Towards the end of last month, reports started showing up suggesting that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be reborn and sold in emerging markets at a subsidized price.
In fact, this report came in right after Samsung had confirmed that it will indeed be bringing back the Galaxy Note 7 and sell it as a refurbished model. Now, to add more weight on this matter, alleged official images of the revised unit have just surfaced, confirming a few key details about the phone, including the model number and battery capacity.
As far as design is concerned, there are no changes – the device is as stunning as it was back in August 2016. However, as opposed to the original version that carried model number SM-N930, the refurbished version will allegedly come with model number SM-N935 and so far it runs firmware version N935FXXU3AQB1T. This firmware is based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, which gives the refurbished model an edge over the original that came with Android Marshmallow running the show. The battery capacity is also dropping from 3500mAh to 3200mAh, which is still not bad.
Previous rumors had claimed that the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be sold in emerging markets that are yet to be determined at just $300 (about ksh 30,000), but there’s still no confirmation on this pricing matter from Samsung itself. Hopefully, we’ll get more details in the coming days, if not weeks. Keep following us!
