Samsung Galaxy Note 7R, which is the refurbished version of the company’s now-discontinued Note 7 phablet, has cleared FCC certification. According to a report by SamMobil website, the smartphone could be soon launched in South Korea, followed by other markets.

The report further adds that three models of the smartphone — SM-N935S, SM-N935K and SM-N935L — have cleared FCC certification. The variant SM-N935S is claimed to be the SK Telecom variant, while the other two variants will be of FreeTel and LG Uplus networks. It’s been mentioned that the refurbished Note 7 will have a smaller 3,200mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7R will run Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box and could be launched in June 2017.

As per another report by SlashGear website, the refurbished Note 7 will be priced less than the original Note 7.

It’s worth mentioning that there were two battery issues which are said to have caused Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phablet to catch fire. While the first one was related to batteries made by Samsung’s own SDI division, the second was related to batteries sourced from Amperex Technology, a third-party battery supplier. After multiple users started complaining about the handset’s batteries, Samsung recalled the phablet from the market and after a few months, revealed the exact reason for the batteries catching fire.

In terms of specifications, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 came with a 5.7-inch Quad HD dual-edge Super AMOLED display of 1440×2560 pixel resolution, protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Based on the market, the smartphone was powered by an octa-core Exynos 8890 processor or a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, clubbed with 4GB RAM. It included 64GB of expandable storage, along with a 12MP dual-pixel rear-camera with optical image stabilization. A 5MP front-facing camera was included as well.
