The recalled units of the Galaxy Note 7 will be refurbished and launch as the Galaxy Note 7R.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7R live images leaked

Samsung faced its biggest downfall last year with the Galaxy Note 7 battery fiasco. Despite repeated efforts, Samsung failed to make its phablet a successful device. The South Korean giant, however, won hearts again with its flagships the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. Samsung, earlier in March revealed that it still has plans for the Galaxy Note 7 and that would be launching the recalled units as refurbished smartphones. The phablet will be launched as Galaxy Note 7R, and has reportedly received Wi-Fi and FCC certification. Now, live images of the alleged Galaxy Note 7R have appeared online.

The hands-on images of the Galaxy Note 7R shared by TechnoBuffalo, shows the phablet s front panel and the About Phone page. Speaking about the design, the Galaxy Note 7R sports an almost identical look with its retired successor Galaxy Note 7. The phablet is seen in gold color with the dual-edge curved display, the physical Home button, volume rocker and power button in place. According to these images, the Galaxy Note 7R runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and is fuelled by a 3,200mAh battery. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 7 was shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and had a bigger 3,500mAh battery.

Although the Galaxy Note 7R will not witness a wide-scale launch, Samsung will still be under vigilance for the battery on the upcoming phablet. If this report is true, then Samsung would be opting for a smaller 3,200mAh battery. Samsung stated that short circuit caused the batteries in the Galaxy Note 7 to over heat or explode. Further digging revealed that there were errors caused in the design of the batteries. Samsung said that it would take strict measures to make sure that the Galaxy Note 7 units are recycled and processed in a safe environment.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7R specifications

Other than the upgraded OS and change in battery, the Galaxy Note 7R is expected to launch with the same set of specifications as the Galaxy Note 7. Putting things in perspective, the Galaxy Note 7R would feature a 5.7-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED dual-edge curved display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The phablet would be powered by Samsung s Exynos 8890 64-bit octa-core processor. In terms of memory, the Galaxy Note 7R is expected to come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

In the photography department, the Galaxy Note 7R would sport a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Its connectivity options include dual-SIM support, 4G LTE support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB Type-C port.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7R availability, price

Samsung clarified saying that the availability of the Galaxy Note 7R would depend on factors like approval by regulatory authorities and carriers and also consideration of local demand. The company also confirmed that it would not launch the Galaxy Note 7R in India. The phablet has reportedly been certified by the FCC in the US, but a possible launch seems unlikely. Samsung is expected to launch 300,000 refurbished Galaxy Note 7R in South Korea and the phablet would be priced at 700,000 Won (Rs 40,200 approximately). According to this pricing, the Galaxy Note 7R would be 300,000 Won (Rs 17,300 approximately) cheaper than the Galaxy Note 7. With Samsung expected to launch the Galaxy Note 8 sometime around September this year, a limited launch for the Galaxy Note 7R does make sense.
