According to a report from South Korean outlet The Investor, Samsung might be contemplating selling refurbished Note 7 units starting from next year.
“Samsung has not made a final decision yet, but it will likely sell the refurbished Note 7 units next year,” an unidentified industry source told the site.
Samsung still clueless about why the first-gen Galaxy Note 7 exploded, and why the “fixed” units were still fire-prone. The report goes on to say that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units will hit emerging markets including India and Vietnam where low-end and mid-range handsets are popular. This seems to indicate Samsung is considering selling the phone for a lot less than its initial iPhone-grade price.
