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.

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.
