Screenshots of Samsung Galaxy Note 7R confirm lower capacity juicer and Android 7.0 on board
Yesterday, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7R had been certified by the FCC. While this often means that a handset is coming to the U.S., that isn't always the case. The original reports had the refurbished version of last year's recalled phablet launching in Vietnam and South Korea. With the company's focus on the already released Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8, there really isn't much room for a refurbished Galaxy Note 7 to be marketed in the U.S.

What we can show you today are several screenshots of the Galaxy Note 7R, including one that lists the 3200mAh battery inside the device. That is an 8.6% decline in capacity from the original 3500mAh batteries that were at the heart of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. You'll also notice that the phone has Android 7.0 installed. The original model had Android 6.0.1 pre-installed.

Outside of the new battery and the new Android build, the rest of the specs will be the same as those found on the original model. So that means that there is nothing surprising about the Geekbench test that shows the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood with an octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. The single-core score was 1939, with a multi-core score of 6093.

The rest of the specs include a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. 64GB of native storage is on board, and there is a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button. The device comes with an IP68 certification rating for protection from dust and water. The rear-facing 12MP camera features an aperture of f/1.7, OIS and PDAF. There is a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7R is expected to launch next month in Coral Blue, Silver, White and Black, priced at the equivalent of $652 USD.
