Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (Original and Refurbished) cleared by Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 7.0 Nougat ahead of Release

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

A few days ago, alleged images of the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 surfaced, giving us an idea of a few things about the phone.

According to the images, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is set to come in with a new model number SM-N935 – an indicator that it’s a revised variant of the original Note 7 that had model number SM-N930. Now, in a new development, the refurbished Note 7 has just been cleared on Wi-Fi Alliance with the said model number and Android 7.0 Nougat running the show.

While this was expected to happen given that Sammy had already confirmed that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is on its way, there’s something strange also happening. Apparently, it’s not just the revised Note 7 that has been cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It appears that the Korean company still got plans for the original Note 7 as the same phone with model number SM-N930 has also been certified with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

At this point in time, we know that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be making a comeback as a refurbished version, however, we don’t really know why the WFA has just certified the original Note 7 with Nougat. Given that Samsung has been doing everything possible to get rid of the original Note 7 from the market, it is possible that the software update being lined up might be the last kill switch for the phone so as to avoid any issues arising from confusions due to presence of two different Note 7 variants in the market.

There’s still no confirmed date as to when the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be here. But now that the WFA has just cleared the phone with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, it’s safe to assume that the release is indeed imminent. Of course, we’ll keep track of the matter and let you know what happens. Sty tuned!
