Samsung denies reports it plans to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units in India

29

Samsung will not be selling any refurbished Galaxy Note 7 phones in India or any other country for that matter. The handset maker refutes previous rumors claiming Samsung might resell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units in the coming months.

In a recent statement to Gadgets 360, Samsung India was very clear about these reports supposedly coming from a person familiar with the matter: “The report on Samsung planning to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 smartphone[s] in India is incorrect.”

Korean media suggested a few days ago Samsung is taking into consideration the reuse of some Galaxy Note 7 components to minimize losses following the flagship's global recall.

According to the report, Samsung was supposed to replace the Galaxy Note 7's massive 3,500 mAh battery with a smaller 3,000 or 3,200 mAh one.

Although the rest of the specs would remain the same, Samsung would also change the case of the phone. The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 should have been sold in emerging markets, starting with India and Vietnam.

Even though Samsung India clearly stated that it doesn't plan to sell any refurbished Galaxy Note 7 phones in the country, the original report said the company is taking into consideration this option, which could mean that a decision has yet to be made. So, there you have it.
