No, Samsung won’t repair or refurbish the recalled Galaxy Note 7s
It’s already official that Galaxy Note 7 is no more. Samsung announced the global recall of each and every Galaxy Note 7 sold till date. One may wonder, what the company is doing to do with them? And we may have an answer.
A company spokesperson confirmed to Motherboard that there are no plans to repair or refurbish a single recalled device. Every Note 7 that Samsung receives back will be scrapped. “We have a process in place to safely dispose of the phones.”
Exactly what process will be followed, is still unknown at this time but we could at least expect to see Note 7 components like processor, RAM, and ROM to make an appearance on future Galaxy devices.
