Out of the three-to-four million handsets recalled, it’s believed that just 300,000 will go on sale in the region, with each reportedly carrying a price tag of 700,000 won ($620), which is around 300,000 ($266) won cheaper than the original.
So what will the device be called when it hits the shelves? Well, ET News notes that it’s likely it will carry the moniker Galaxy Note 7 R, though Samsung is said to be toying with alternatives.
One thing we can be certain of is that the so-called Galaxy Note 7 R will sport a smaller battery than its predecessor — 3,200mAh instead of 3,500mAh.
Aside from a smaller cell…
Aside from a smaller cell, the Galaxy Note 7 R is expected to pack identical internals to the Galaxy Note 7, so it should have a 5-7-inch display, an Exynos 8890 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
