Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S7 Latest Update: Failed Phablet Takes One More Step To Redemption, New SRP Revealed

Apr 25, 2017 05:47 PM EDT

Though most have moved on from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its forgettable exploding battery row, the Korean electronics giant is still trying to recover some of its losses. Word about refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units hitting the scene has been out for quite some time now and the latest update may have pushed it a step forward.

A look at WiFi Alliance shows seven new variants carrying similar product names from Samsung. It is believed that these are the variations for the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which are set to roll out in June. For reference, the model numbers listed are: SM-N930FD, SM-N930X, SM-N930S, SM-N930L, SM-N930K, SM-N930F and SM-N935S.

The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 variants will have different connectivity options which include 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and a WiFi direct feature. Aside from that, it was also revealed that the refurbished units will already have Android 7.0 Nougat installed.

It remains to be seen if the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units will be of interest to consumers. They are likely to be offered to regions who could care less about its past mishap but in limited quantities, Pocket Now suggested. Pricing will be a factor, and the latest word from Android Authority reveals it will be offered $250 cheaper. After two recalls, taking another chance on a refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could draw mixed reactions. The failed phablet remains an interesting buy mostly because of its high-end features and gorgeous aesthetic.

Considering there is a Samsung Galaxy 8 and S8+ out in the market, potential buyers may (be wise) to opt for the latest flagships despite the price disparity. Safety is still important above everything else even if the Korean company seems to have addressed the battery exploding feature. Would you take a chance on a refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
