Samsung didn’t decided when they will launch the refurbished Galaxy Note7, but the phone is already on sale in China. A Galaxy Note7R has appeared on a Chinese retailer’s website ahead of the official release.

The Chinese retailer sales the refurbished Note 7 at a price tag in the range of CNY 3,599-3,999 ($520-$580), which is around $290 less than the original price. Further, the design of the refurbished model looks pretty much the same.

The Note7R reportedly comes in two variants: one with 3,200mAh battery (aimed at Europe, the US, and Asia Pacific), and the other with 3,500mAh battery (the same capacity as the Note7). The latter is said to be a modified, small-volume version of the original battery.
