Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may go on sale in June

Previously, Galaxy S8 leak seemingly indicates that Samsung will place the fingerprint scanner under the rear-shooter. The new smartphone just hit store shelves and Consumer Reports reveals how the Galaxy S8 stacks up against the competition. Typically the Exynos models of Samsung's flagships don't see much development because the device doesn't have anything open sourced, but that's not the case this time around. The Galaxy S8, in many regions, is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it has been rumoured that the Galaxy S9 will use the Snapdragon 845.

As per a report by South Korean publication ET News, picked up by SamMobile, the first refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units will be launched via three carriers in South Korea in June. This message reads that an irregular charge has been detected. The phone, when placed on the wireless charging pad, doesn't charge at all. The Snapdragon 845 that will be a feature in the Samsung Galaxy 9, it will clock faster than the rate of 3.6 GHz Quad + 2.8 GHz Quad. There's also the fact that it will be a tough sell considering the phone's reputation. Same thing happened with the really old wireless chargers when the S7 and S7 Edge came out.

According to a report from Korea's ETnews, both the Korean smartphone giants are working on phones that will have displays covering nearly 100 percent of the front. The report, quoting an industry expert, further highlights that the reddish tint might be caused due colour imbalance after the company used deep red AMOLED to strengthen the red.

Owners of the Galaxy S8 series are also unhappy with the placement of the fingerprint sensor.

SquareTrade didn't test the phones' battery, the source of problems that led to a recall of Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 phone.
