Samsung Galaxy S8 Official Images and Information Leaked

Samsung Galaxy S8 Official Images and Information Leaked

Other investigations determined there were also design flaws in the Galaxy Note 7 chassis that caused the device to malfunction. The one more notable drawback of these two phones is the lack of 4K video recording option and the seemingly complete lack of stabilization in videos, that results in very shaky footage that is barely usable.

The announcement appears to walk back on what Samsung initially pledged last fall, when it said it would dispose of the Note 7 and had no plans to fix or refurbish them.

While the company didn't provide details on where the refurbished phones will be available, the rep did note that product details including the name, technical specification, and price range will be announced when the device is available.

Samsung, which had sold 3.06 million Note 7s to consumers before taking the phones off the market, had not previously said what it plans to do with the recovered phones.

Note the wording in that statement: "Upon consultations with regulatory authorities and carriers". Samsung Electronics noted that 97% of the sold units have been reclaimed and return, so, there are still 7% or over 70,000 devices are still waiting to return to the company.

The US and global models of both phones are represented here, with the key difference of course being the processors that power them. Life is just way too boring these days! You'd think Samsung would be trying to do everything it could to get us to all forget about the Note 7. However, the South Korean manufacturer has added a twist to it by making the new phone virtually bezel less. Among these Chinese brands are HTC and Samsung and their respective HTC 11 and Samsung Note 8 flagship smartphones that pose direct competition to each other in the market.

So why do anything with the phones at all?

Samsung had faced pressure from environmental campaigner Greenpeace.

Samsung also plans to join the EU's R&D and test efforts to develop new eco-friendly processing methods.

Since devices began catching fire and exploding following the Note7 launch past year, Samsung has been working with carriers to get as many phones returned as possible.
