Months after report indicated that the Galaxy Note 7 which was reported by several users to have gone up in flames leading to its total recall was spotted in Vietnam but with a bumped down battery capacity as the tech company had revealed following the device’s recall that the fire incidents were caused by the irregularly sized batteries which were loaded on the device, Samsung looks to be ready to throw the device out there in the open again.
This time, Samsung took the time to refurbish the device which will now come with a 3,200 mAh battery as against the 3,500 mAh battery loaded on the flaming version which was earlier released.
According to latest reports, the Galaxy Note 7 refurbished has been certified as it was spotted on certification website, FCC and it appears the tech company will be releasing it into the market soon.

The device is confirmed to arrive in South Korea, the home country of the tech company soon as the SM-N935S is according to report said to be coming to SK Telecom. The other two variants of the Galaxy Note 7 refurbished will, however, be made available at KT Freetel and LG Uplus (LG U +) which are two of Korea’s leading and biggest carriers.
The certification information also revealed that the device will carry the name Galaxy Note 7R and will most likely go on sale this June although the tech company has not confirmed shipping and availability for other regions.
Loaded on the Galaxy Note 7R will be a 12MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera for selfie and video calling while under the hood, it will come packing as much as 64GB of internal storage size loaded on the 4GB RAM enabled device. For the processor, the Galaxy Note 7R will run on a 64-bit Octa-core chipset, the Exynos 8890 and will roll out with an iris scanner; a fingerprint scanner mounted behind the home button and the latest Android OS 7 Nougat.
For pricing, the Galaxy Note 7R is expected to be made available for as much as $620 which comes about $250 less than the release price of the original model.
