While Samsung had earlier confirmed that it will not be bringing its Note 7 phablet to India, a report now points out that it has begun selling in other markets after its re-launch in Korea.
According to a report by the Playfuldroid, the refurbished unit of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has gone on sale in China. The product listing on a retailers website showcases a Samsung Galaxy Note 7R (R for refurbished) already on sale, much before the official re-launch.
The smartphone in the image is a gold unit with a price tag at CNY 3,599-3,999 (Rs 33,446) which is a lot less compared to the launch price in India which was set at Rs 59,990 (after which reports of the Note 7 catching fire started to pour in and the model was discontinued).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7R comes in two variants, one with a 3,200mAh battery and the second with 3,500mAh battery. The variant with the smaller battery is reportedly heading to Europe, the US and Asia. The variant with the larger battery will be a limited volume run.
The Note 7 packed in a 5.7-inch Super Amoled display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the back and the front. Inside, you get an Exynos 8890 chipset which is the same as on the older Galaxy S7 along with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Connectivity options include LTE, dual-SIM card option (hybrid slot), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, GALILEO). The Galaxy Note 7 borrows the 12 MP camera that featured on the S7 and the S7 Edge.
