Here I was thinking that Samsung was done with the Galaxy Note 7. Rightfully so after two recalls, class-action lawsuits, and a promise that production had been halted. Well, it seems that there are rumblings that Samsung is planning to sell refurbished Note 7s sometime next year.
The report from The Investor suggests that although the final decision has yet to be made, Samsung is considering selling the refurbished devices in India and Vietnam. It’s unlikely that the US will ever see the Note 7 being sold in any capacity, but who knows what can happen between now and next year.
Maybe, Samsung actually figured out what was wrong with the batteries/design of the Note 7 and have devised a plan to fix it. Then again, this could be another disaster waiting to happen.
With resources focused on the Galaxy S8 release, we were expecting for Samsung to put the Note 7 debacle behind them, but I guess they have to make some of that money back. If Samsung offered a refurbished Galaxy Note 7 that was approved through all the proper channels and was fully inspected, would you consider purchasing one? Let us know in the comments.
