The Galaxy Note7 started out as one of the best Android devices of 2016, but it quickly turned into one of the most disastrous smartphone launches to date. While Samsung finally closed the book on its Galaxy Note7 fiasco last month, the issue of whether refurbished units would make their way back onto the market has still persisted.
While an earlier claimed that they might be coming to Vietnam, India and other emerging markets with new bodywork and smaller batteries, a Samsung India representative has now denied that the refurbished units will be sold in India. Although this is probably the clearest response you'll get about a refurbished Note7, there is always the possibility that it will make an appearance in other regions.
With the Note7 incident officially behind them, Samsung is planning to move forward with the release of its first next new flagship handset, the much rumored Galaxy S8. If you absolutely need something with a stylus, Samsung has also publicly stated that the Note line will make a comeback in 2017 and will be better and safer than anything before it.
