Samsung to Release Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Phones

Samsung to Release Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Phones

By Ambia Staley

Samsung has some surprising news, as they've recently announced plans to bring back their discontinued Galaxy Note 7 phones.

The hot phones -- literally and figuratively -- were released in August 2016 and were recalled and replaced only a month later when reports of batteries overheating and catching fire began to emerge. Unfortunately for Samsung and Galaxy Note 7 owners alike, the replacement phones were not any better, as they also overheated, causing Samsung to recall and discontinue over 2 million phones.

Despite the issues, Samsung has finally decided to refurbish and bring back the phone as the "Galaxy Note FE", short for "Fan Edition". The phone will be composed of salvaged unused parts, and Samsung claims that unlike the original Note 7 phone, the FE has "perfect safety".

The hardware of the Note FE is reportedly identical to last year's Note 7, however the new phones will contain a smaller battery with multiple safety designs. The software will also be updated to run Samsung's new digital assistant, Bixby.

The phone will first go on sale in South Korea on July 7 at a cost of approximately $788 Canadian (699,600 South Korean Won), and supply will be limited to 400,000 units. Plans for overseas sales will be determined at a later date.

With many sources speculating that the announcement of the Galaxy Note 8 could come this August, it's possible that many will skip a refurbished Note 7 phone in favour of a brand new Note 8.

Are you happy to see the return of the Galaxy Note 7 as the Note FE? Will you pick one up if it comes to Canada, or wait for the Note 8? Let us know in the comments!
