Samsung mulls relaunching modified Galaxy 7 after burning scandal
BBC – Samsung hopes to refurbish the 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 devices that it recalled after a battery fault led to some catching fire.
If local authorities and carriers agreed, and there was demand, it may then resell the phones, Samsung said.
It also unveiled two other proposals for recycling the devices, including detaching the components and retrieving the hardware’s precious metals.
Samsung had faced pressure from environmental campaigner Greenpeace.
The organisation had lobbied the technology giant over its plans for the devices, launching a petition and staging global protests including at the Mobile World Congress event.
