After unveiling Galaxy S8, Samsung is all set to launch a new smartphone this month. Nobody had expected Samsung to launch a new smartphone so soon. But turns out we will soon get to see the ‘mystery’ phone this month. This mystery phone is no stranger to Samsung fans.

If you have been wondering what the mystery is all about, it’s all about the infamous Galaxy Note 7. Yes. Samsung is bringing back the Galaxy Note 7 and this time it will be the “refurbished” version of the disastrous Galaxy Note 7. The leaked images reveal the Galaxy Note 7 having a large “R” – to stand for “refurbished” units – printed on the back.
The new refurbished Galaxy Note 7 smartphones will be released in South Korea before the Galaxy Note 8 becomes available in stores this summer. The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to ship with 3,200mAh battery, which is smaller than the earlier 3,500mAh battery that Galaxy Note 7 boasted of. Apart from battery size down, the refurbished device is also expected to see a price cut – down 30pc compared to what Galaxy Note 7 was priced. The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory and will be powered by Exynos 8890 processor.
The device has been spotted in a few Chinese stores by the name ‘Samsung Galaxy Note 7R’. But there has been no official announcement from Samsung about which markets will see the launch. Galaxy Note 7 explosions caused a major embarrassment for the Korean giant. The exploding Note 7 phones had damaged Samsung’s reputation and caused trust issues among consumers – so much so that the company had to officially announce that Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are safe to use.
