Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S8, S8+ in India, which features the new Infinity Display, that is curved on both sides, and doesn't have bezels on the side at all. The new smartphone just hit store shelves and Consumer Reports reveals how the Galaxy S8 stacks up against the competition. That's a lot less than the 3,500 mAh cells fitted originally, but we all know how that turned out.

Selling refurbished units with modifications at a comparatively lesser price could not only prove to beneficial but also help in balancing the sheets for Samsung.

It's $250 off the initial price tag, something unsurprising considering it's a refurbished unit. A previous report suggests that the refurbished Note 7 will be made available in very selective markets only. While smaller, it's still enough to get you through a solid day of usage.

So, why did Samsung decide to name it Note 7R? One of Samsung Galaxy S8 owners claims that the red screen problem should not be blamed on the software. But the S9 will not launch until February 2018, with a 6GB RAM the phone is also said to have a 128GB internal memory and a dual camera with 21 megapixels and 8 megapixels. Any bigger of a screen could become hard to hold or even a bigger battery drain. The cornerstone device has and always been the Note lineup. Apple has reportedly ordered 70-90 million OLED panels orders for the Korean manufacturer with reports hinting that the panels will be delivered to Foxconn sometime in June/July, making it hard to carry on with the desired launch date for the Cupertino company. After having seen the refurbished Note7 being Wi-Fi certified yesterday, now we have a release time frame to speak of. After all, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will also be a great device.
