In a short, but relatively informative way, Samsung has just confirmed that returned Galaxy Note 7’s may find home in new refurbished versions of themselves or as rental units – provided local authorizes and sanctions will allow it, among other things like demand.
As part of an environmental strategy press release, the South Korean company says that they’re doing their best to reuse all the components in these ill-fated phones – and if can’t be refurbished will be salvaged for parts, with the remaining rare metals extracted and processed.

But yes, that means that – despite a short mention of refurbishing or renting out functional phones – Samsung didn’t specify when or where we’ll see them back in the market. All we know is that if demand is high and our local policies allow it, we might see affordable Note 7’s refurbs in the future.
Whether or not airlines will still ban them for safety is another issue though. As well as, you know, what if even the refurbished ones blow up?
