Samsung Galaxy Note 7: refurbished models set to go on sale in June

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs S7 screen waterproof

Samsung will relaunch its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone in June, with a smaller battery that it'll hope is free of overheating problems.

Korean media says that the device will come with a much lower price tag than the original Galaxy Note 7 and will set you back £483 SIM–free.

It's not clear whether the refurbished phone will launch beyond Samsung’s home country.

Samsung was forced to pull the Galaxy Note 7 from sale last autumn after the battery inside the phone exploded in a number of high profile cases.

It’s said to be sitting on a stockpile of as many as 2.5 million units, so selling a refurbished model may help it recoup some losses.

The new version of the Galaxy Note 7 is believed to have a 3,000 mAh battery, down from 3,500 mAh in the original.

The question is, will consumers take a chance on the phone second time around, especially with the excellent new Galaxy S8 available?
