So here a piece of short but exciting news, according to CNET.com, they were told that the next Unpacked event by Samsung will be returning to Barclays Center on 7 August 2019 which will probably showcase the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.

Ex-Note 7 owners can trade-in up to about RM1818 off the expected Samsung Galaxy Note 8 RM3979 price tagPosted: Aug 24, 2017
Bestbuy recently revealed the price for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 without any carrier to be $929.99 (~RM3979) which makes it the highest priced Samsung Galaxy phone to date. On the other hand, according to the Verge, Samsung is offering former Galaxy Note 7 users up to $425 (~RM1818) to trade-in their current phones. No info as to which phones will let you reach this halfway point but none of them will likely offer the same S Pen goodness as the Galaxy Note 8.

After Samsung India denied that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would get recycled with smaller batteries, Samsung Global has since responded that yes, "devices shall be considered to be used as refurbished phones or rental phones where applicable". Of course, there are conditions to this as Samsung have further explained that it depends entirely on whether the government and other regulatory authorities or carriers would be interested. No release dates or pricing details yet but Galaxy Note 7 devices that didn't make the cut will be recycled to extract precious metals in an environmentally friendly manner.
What do you think? Would you buy a refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7? For how much? Discuss in our Facebook page and let's hope that Samsung pay attention to those asking for affordable price tags (maybe just a bit more than the RM2299 Galaxy C9 Pro?)

We reported yesterday that there are rumours alleging that refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with smaller battery capacity will be sold in emerging markets, which included India and Vietnam. In a quick turn of events, looks like it'll not be happening, at least, not for India, as it had been refuted by Samsung India.

While Samsung might have had to deal with the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 fiasco last year, where ill-fated devices were plagued by explosions due to manufacturing and design defects in the battery, it seems that some news have surfaced that they are considering selling refurbished sets of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in developing countries.
The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 sets will allegedly carry a smaller battery, 3000mAh to 3200mAh, (down from the original 3500mAh), and would be available as soon as June 2017 in emerging markets like India and Vietnam.
Samsung officially explain that the battery manufacturing and battery design caused Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explosionsPosted: Jan 22, 2017
While it was poised to take over the world as Samsung's latest and greatest smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7 started exploding, resulting in a replacement, eventual global recall and more than $5 billion in losses. Samsung officially announced that the reason for the explosions were caused by the battery due to internal short circuits from deformation of the lithium ion jelly roll in the battery in the first batch of batteries and shoddy production such as poor welding and missing insulation tapes in the second batch of batteries. Basically, manufacturing and design defects in the battery.
