While officially, Samsung is saying that they have not yet decided on refurbished Galaxy Note7 launch schedule, the phone is already on sale in China. A Galaxy Note7R (R for refurbished) listing appeared on a Chinese retailer’s website ahead of the actual announcement.
The listing reveals a price tag in the range of CNY 3,599-3,999 ($520-$580), which is around CNY 2,000 ($290) less than the original device’s price. Further, the design of the refurbished model looks pretty much the same.
The Note7R reportedly comes in two variants: one with 3,200mAh battery (aimed at Europe, the US, and Asia Pacific), and the other with 3,500mAh battery (the same capacity as the Note7). The latter is said to be a modified, small-volume version of the original battery.
