Samsung to fire sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7's

Tech giant Samsung is to sell refurbished versions of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, the model pulled from markets last year due to fire-prone batteries.

The device was permanently scrapped in October following a global recall two months after its launch.

A number of the smartphones self combusted.

An investigation uncovered manufacturing problems in batteries supplied by two different companies.

No other problems in the Note 7 were discovered.

The Korean company announced the move on its website as it attempts to recoup some of the losses incurred from the device, which retailed at around $900.
