Samsung Galaxy Note 7R gets one more approval before release

The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7R is clearly coming to market, but if you hope to grab one, you'll want to pray to the fortune gods since the South Korean company won't release it worldwide.

Two places where you will certainly be able to purchase the Galaxy Note 7R is China and South Korea, but other than that the list of markets where the smartphone will be available it's a well-guarded secret.

The good news is the refurbished version of the last year's flagship smartphone is close to being introduced in those two markets we've mentioned. The Galaxy Note 7R, also known by model number Samsung SM-N935F, has been recently spotted at Bluetooth SIG, the regulatory entity that approves devices compliant with the Bluetooth standard.

Unlike the original model that packed a 3,500 mAh battery inside, the Galaxy Note 7R comes with a smaller 3,200 mAh battery. The phablet is expected to arrive in many color variations like Black, White, Silver, and Coral Blue.

We have yet to learn the Galaxy Note 7R's full specification list, so there's no telling what chipset Samsung will use pack inside the smartphone, or the amount of memory for that matter.

I'm guessing same as the S7 edge's current price.

Considering the amount of devices produced specifically for the NA market...I couldn't imagine Samsung *not* offering it here in the States...

I don't think they will. Samsung stopped manufacturing them, I read somewhere that they still have around 2.5 million units laying around so that's probably all of the Note 7R's that will ever be released. South Korea will scoop up most of that and probably a few emerging markets too, your only chance to get one is probably to import.

The s7 edge is $480 at Tmo as the new price going forward, the flat s7 is $560!! That would be a great price for the note 7 at $480 but I imagine it being a little more, I would still go with the s7 edge as I did.
