Samsung has officially announced its intention to renovate a Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, with their new batteries, which will be sold in some markets, after a discussion with local regulators and a market sustainability analysis.
The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is said to be released in India and Vietnam, although a local Samsung division has recently denied rumors before the company officially announces the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones recycling and refurbishment program.
Today, images from Vietnam are leaking and show the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 with code number SM-N935. This means the model could be sold in the country, as Samsung is currently gathering its smartphones there.
An interesting information that the images reveal concerns the battery in the refurbished model. Previous rumors have reported that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will have a smaller battery than the original model, and the leaked image seems to confirm it.
The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 seems to have a new battery in 3,200mAh instead of the 3,500mAh explosive battery that had the original models.
Apparently, the refurbished devices should have undergone a deeper quality assurance process that was necessary to ensure that Samsung is safe to use and that they will not have the same fate as the original models.
One of the leaked images also shows that the refurbished device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. Please note that the original model was released in the market at the 850 price of the dollar, while the refurbished model will certainly have a much lower price.
