For Some Reason, Samsung Might Sell Refurbished Versions of Its Exploding Phones

It had a fantastic screen, attractive design, and an improved S Pen stylus. However, the South Korean manufacturer has added a twist to it by making the new phone virtually bezel less. However, those phones too showed a tendency to burst into flames. The company estimated a $5.5 billion profit hit over three quarters from the Note 7's troubles.

Samsung cancelled the Note 7 and had consumers return their phones just two months after it was originally released. In the first battery, negative electrodes were bent near the corner of the compact battery casing, which caused shorts and overheating.

Samsung is scheduled to launch its newest smartphone, the Galaxy S8, on Wednesday. The firm has devised a new plan to recycle them by salvaging components, extracting precious metals and selling refurbished devices "where applicable".

Reports came out that Samsung hoarded all Snapdragon 835 chips (which are made at Samsung plants).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was released past year, August 19, 2016, and after the reports of exploding batteries, on October 11, 2016, the Samsung company recall all the sold devices all over the world to prevent more damages. The company is making sure it goes through the proper procedures of not being wasteful, and rightly so, since numerous materials that will go unused in these phones can be put into better use on future devices. Despite its unfortunate fate, the Note 7 could still impress, if the public gave it the chance.

Phone launches follow a pretty similar pattern: flashy press conference, excitement, pre-orders and the investing world keeping an eye on how well these devices sell.

Blass, who is considered an authority when it comes to credible android leaks, revealed this week that flagship device will go on sale starting April 21 and will set customers back €799 for the S8 and €899 for the larger plus version.

Second, salvageable components shall be detached for reuse.

Driving a new wave of users to buy the next flagship devices will also be crucial if Apple and Samsung want their customers to adopt technologies and services that they are staking their future on such as AI and virtual reality.
