Samsung confirms sale of refurbished Galaxy Note 7 phones




South Korea’s Samsung Electronics announced Monday that it will soon sell refurbished models from its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note , as the handset manufacturer seems unwilling to abandon its smartphone.

The phone faced serious problems, which appeared in the form of a rise in the temperature of the battery and its explosion, burning the device and harming users and their physical property, forcing the company to open the process of replacing the phones to get rid of this problem that continued and prompted the company to announce the suspension of the sale and manufacture of the phone and the withdrawal of all units in the market.

The information that emerged this morning indicates that the company will soon issue an antenna update of the phone that ends the possibility of charging the remaining devices that are not returned to the company owners, where most of these devices are located in the country of origin of the company South Korea.

“The information about Samsung’s plans to sell the newly refurbished Galaxy Note 7 smart phones in India is incorrect,” the spokesman said.

The company’s official statement today is a 180-degree shift, confirming that it plans to do so, along with the statement detailing Samsung’s plans to recycle the remaining inventory of Galaxy Note 7 in an environmentally friendly way .

According to the statement, the company has set three principles to ensure that the recycling of devices is handled in an environmentally friendly manner, and showed its intention to resell the Galaxy Note 7 phones as refurbished phones or leaseable phones, but did not confirm the part of any markets in which the device will be sold, But it is likely that those markets will include emerging markets.

The company’s application of the first item depends on consultations with regulatory authorities and mobile service providers, taking into account local demand, with markets and release dates determined accordingly.

The company also stressed that the rescue components such as semiconductors and camera units should be separated for reuse by the companies specializing in these services to be used for the production of test samples, and other operations such as precious metals such as copper, nickel, gold and silver are carried out using environmentally friendly methods.

This came in response to protests led by environmental organizations at the MWC conference earlier this year. The protests were related to Samsung’s handling of millions of unused 4.3-million-old Galaxy Note 7 phones.
