No, Samsung is not considering launch of Galaxy Note 7 from the dead again. A latest report by Samsung India refutes the announcement that company will launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 again in India, Vietnam and South Korea. A Samsung India spokesperson told Gadgets 360 that “The report on Samsung planning to sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 in India is incorrect”. The company has not yet specified whether the phone will be sold in other markets or not.
A report earlier this week revealed that from June, refurbished edition of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come back in Vietnam and India and the company is allegedly looking to replace the faulty batteries with lower capacity models. But recent report falsified this news. Samsung is not ready to make any announcement regarding Galaxy Note 7 however Samsung India confirms that the phone is not heading to India.
Rise and fall stories of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been covering headlines for last few months. Unfortunately, it was called off the market due to battery explosions. Early September, Samsung said that it was halting sales of the Galaxy Note 7 and had begun investigation to find out the cause of explosions. Launch of reengineered phone was expected to come up with a smaller battery capacity because explosions happened because of large size battery embedded into the device. The Note 7 was released with a 3,500 mAh non removable battery. However, the new changes in phone will include batteries of 3,000 mAh or 3,200 mAh.
All hope is not lost. Everyone who may have hoped to get Note 7 in cheaper price should not disappoint because the statement above does not deny Samsung interest in selling reengineered Galaxy Note 7 phones. The statement says that only India would not get them but there is no word of Vietnam.
