Earlier in March, Samsung announced that it is preparing to re-launch their Galaxy Note 7 – dubbed as Samsung Galaxy Note 7R. Well, this refurbished phone was expected to be initially released in the South Korean market. Even a recent news from South Korea, highlighted that the Note 7R will be priced at $440 (approximately Rs.30, 000), which is half of the price of Note 7.
But in contrast, now the Note 7R has been listed for purchase in China. The device is said to be shipped in two different variants. One is a 3200mAh battery version, which is for the US, Asian and European markets with a $520 price tag. And the other is a 3500mAh battery version that is priced at $580 with small improvements to avoid any possible explosion.
Further, we recently saw some images and gossip about the phone that it almost sports an identical look with its retired successor, the Galaxy Note 7. In the images, the phablet is shown off in a Gold color variant with a dual-edged curved display.
According to those leaks, the Galaxy Note 7R would run on Android 7.0 Nougat with a 3,200 battery. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 7 (2016) model had a bigger 3,500 mAh battery. Moreover, we can confirm that the new one, will be much cheaper than the original one.
Last year, Samsung had faced a biggest downfall with its Galaxy Note 7. Yet, the South Korean company has won everyone’s hearts again, with its latest flagships the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Now, it has assured to come back, with its new refurbished phone, the Galaxy Note 7R. Let’s wait and watch what’s going to happen.
