Even though it is still a mystery as to why many of the Galaxy Note 7 units started to catch fire, there is a rumor which is indicating that the Korean giant may start selling refurbished versions of the Note 7 in 2017. According to the same source, these "refurbished" devices will be sold in India and Vietnam to make for some of the money that Samsung lost during the entire Note 7 episode. In my opinion, that's absolute hogwash because of the following reasons.


1. Samsung cares about its reputation and they are not going to let their already tarnished reputation get any worse by pulling such a dirty move.


2. They have completely discontinued their entire Note 7 production line-up. The Galaxy S8, as well as the Note 8 will be taking up all the attention, time and care that their production departments can offer to ensure safe and successful launches for both the upcoming phones.


3. The rumor which I found on a popular site refers to a source article that was published on September 26, while the Note 7 was officially announced as being discontinued on October 11 (approximately). Therefore, the rumor is probably based on an outdated piece of news and is therefore invalid.

If you are eager to see the Galaxy Note 7 being re-launched then we have good news for you. New images of the Galaxy Note 7 "refurbished edition" has been leaked online. However, the sad news is that in order to make it a safer and less explosive device, Samsung has not only changed the battery line-up, but the batteries themselves as well. While that should be good news, it really isn't because the refurbished Note 7 will now reportedly, sport a smaller 3,200mAh cell instead of the original's 3,500mAh cell.



As the pictures came in from a Vietnamese fan site, it seems that the rumors about the Note 7 being introduced in the country may not be just a rumor after all. Rumor also had it that India would also be getting the refurbished Note 7, but a Samsung employee has mentioned that it won't. Even if it is re-introduced in certain nations, it may not actually go on sale, but could only be available as a rental phone. We will have to wait to find out more. In the meanwhile, check out the images to see all that they reveal.
