Samsung Electronics will soon start selling the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. The earlier flagship has been controversial for catching up fire and the company has got into millions of losses. Now, the maker is gearing up to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 phones across the world. The sources confirmed that Note 7 refurbished phones will go one for sale from July 7.
However, the company hasn’t revealed the price of the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones. Samsung information technology division is working on the handset’s cost and will be announced by launch date. At present, the tech giant is holding its bi-annual strategic forum at Seoul. It is expected that the company would announce upcoming launch dates for products like Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 7’s successor.

For the first of its kind, Samsung has suspended the manufacturing and sales of the Galaxy Note 7 after the reports stating several handsets catching fire. The handset’s non-removable battery is accused of the explosions. The humiliation on the Samsung’s flagship made a way to operating losses of some 6.1 trillion won ($5 billion) to the company.
Now, refurbished Galaxy Note 7 phones will be rolled out with completely updated software and a lower-capacity battery compared to the original model. The company’s attempt to develop long-lasting and small battery is blamed for the phones catching fire.
Samsung received a large number of petitions when it recalled smartphone last year. The environment groups have asked to repair and reuse the 4.3 million Note 7 handsets that were produced. Back in March, the company said it would roll out recycle and refurbish Galaxy Note 7 phones for sale.
