Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 gets FCC certification, release expected next month
The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7, passed FCC certification which is the final step before releasing any Smartphone. The Note 7 or the Note 7R was seen in three variants: SM-N935S, SM-N935K, and SM-N935L. They point to the three major South Korean carriers: SK Telecom, KT Freetel, and LG Uplus.
Last week a source indicated the refurbished Note 7 or the Note 7R will go on sale for approx 700,000 won (~$620), which works out at around $250 cheaper than the original handset’s ~$870 (988,900 won) price. The device is expected to ship with a smaller battery, 3,250 mAh compared to the original 3,500 mAh. As we all know battery troubles were the heart of initial cancellation of the device.
The Galaxy Note 7R is expected to go on sale in a few markets, though Samsung has ruled out a release in the US and Canada. You still might be able to acquire it from re-sellers, however, if you’re interested.
