Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Images Leak Confirming the Letter‘R’ on the Back Panel

Even though Samsung had shipped millions of Galaxy Note 7 units by the time the phone was discontinued late last year, quite a number of markets had not seen the phone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had only reached major smartphone markets across the globe, among them the U.S., South Korea and China. Many markets across Europe, Asia South America and Africa had yet to get a chance to embrace the beauty and power of the Note 7. However, it won’t be long before this dream comes true.

Over the past few months, or rather since February’s MWC 2017 event, a lot has been circulating the rumor mills regarding the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Things got even more heated when the tech giant made an official statement that it will indeed be releasing a refurbished Note 7 at some point this year.

It’s now two months since the South Korean company made this statement, but the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still nowhere to be seen. As noted earlier, rumors have been all over and so far, some are adamant that this phone will be here towards the end of this new month of June. Samsung has managed to remain silent on the matter, but if the latest leaks are anything to go by, it’s true that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is indeed a done thing awaiting approval for release.

Not so long ago, we came across a report that claimed the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be called Galaxy Note FE, where FE stands for Fandom Edition or rather Fan Edition. In short, Samsung wants to position this phone as one targeting the diehard fans, including those who had already owned the device and would still want to own this one.

The Galaxy Note FE name tag came in at a time when other rumors were claiming that this phone will be dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 7R, where R will obviously stand for Refurbished. However, it wasn’t coming from Samsung itself, just like the latest images that swing the names battle towards the Galaxy Note 7R camp.

According to newly leaked images, it won’t be such a hard task when it comes to identifying the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Apparently, the phone will come in with a huge letter R on the back panel just near the bottom end and just as you may have already guessed, this letter will represent Refurbished. This will help buyers confirm that the Note 7 in question is a genuinely refurbished unit just by looking at it.

Up to now, Samsung has not said a thing regarding when to expect this Galaxy Note FE or rather Note 7R, but as noted earlier, rumors have been pointing towards an end of June release date. So far, the company has already ruled out the U.S. as a potential destination for the refurbished Note 7, but it hasn’t mentioned the markets that will be guaranteed the phone.

Despite this silence, we’ve seen several variants of the phone pass by the Wi-Fi Alliance, where model numbers SM-N935S, SM-N935K, SM-N935L and SM-N935F have appeared. These are meant for the Korean and European markets.

As for the specs, word has it that most of what appeared in the original model will be retained, including an Exynos 8890 SoC, 4GB RAM (although a model has appeared in benchmarks with 3GB RAM), 64GB of expandable storage, 12MP back camera, 5MP selfie camera, an iris scanner as well as a fingerprint scanner. The only major changes to expect are Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box alongside a smaller 3200mAh battery unit.
