Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leaked Schematics Design, Specs, Features, & Release Date

In addition to this, the salvaged components will be detached and reused, so none of them go to waste. The Reuters report didn't clarify as to when the refurbished Note 7's would be coming to market.

Samsung sold 3.06 million Note 7s to consumers before taking the phones off the market.

If not for the defective Li-Ion battery, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would have hit Apple iPhone 7 series sales real hard.

We're not sure whether Samsung reminding everyone about the Note 7 catastrophe two days before it reveals its most important phone of 2017 is a smart strategy.

The Note fallout cost Samsung more than 7 trillion won (US$6.28 billion) in operating profit previous year.

The press release doesn't specify how numerous phones will be returned to the wild, but Samsung confirms it will be using some returned devices as "refurbished phones or rental phones".

Samsung has said it's considering the potential to refurbish the phones, or to sell them as rental devices. Apparently, the company had to recall the devices due to safety concerns, leaving a huge gap in the Note lineup.

Samsung said it would have to liaise with "regulatory authorities and carriers" and measure local demand before determining where and when refurbished handsets would be released. A month after it came out, Samsung chief D.J. Koh announced the recall of 2.5 million units of the phone adding that these users will be getting a replacement.

Though some are still skeptic about Samsung's move to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean company has found an unlikely ally in Greenpeace. However, around 97 percent of the devices are believed to have already been returned to Samsung. Greenpeace, the environmental group had been calling on Samsung to recycle all the components from the recalled devices and expressed optimism over Monday's announcement.

The decision to sell refurbished Note 7 devices could hurt Note 8 product sales later this year if sold in their top markets.

Meanwhile, a Samsung spokesperson reportedly said that the company will not be offering refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices for rent or sale in the US.
