Samsung may again start selling the Note 7

Rumor has it, Samsung plans to launch two Galaxy S8 variants based on the size of the display: 5.7- or 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch. Samsung will be replacing the battery of the devices and using a 3000mAh-3200mAh battery capacity.

Samsung is reportedly planning to bring the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 back from the ashes to sell in emerging markets.

You'd need tremendous faith in Samsung if you'd take the risk of buying a Galaxy Note 7 again.

It appears that Samsung could soon start selling refurbished Galaxy Note 7's in some markets, according to a new report.




Moreover, the Galaxy Tab S3 will be coming in a "glass sandwich" body, which means both its front and back sides are in glass, while sandwiched between them is the metal body, reports SamMobile. Well, it seems the South Korean tech giant is indeed insane enough to do this, but this will reportedly be targeting emerging markets such India, Vietnam, Africa and South America as well.

The whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco led Samsung to suffer more than $2.6 billion in losses through the recall program alone.

Last month Samsung revealed the official results into its internal investigation of why the Galaxy Note7 was prone to overheating. Reselling a refurbished version of the phone to consumers might the handsets themselves, but all of those old batteries still need to be disposed of. However, it says that an incorrectly located negative electrode tip was a factor too.

Samsung will not be launching its Galaxy S8 at the MWC event, instead, the company will be having a scheduled major press event in Barcelona on Feb 26. This is smaller than the 3500mAh unit used on the compact Note 7, something that some pundits had previously claimed was part of the problem. The tool can be downloaded by owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge after they've updated to Android 7.0 Nougat.
