    Not coming back. They are not bringing back the Note 7. Only a Note 8 at the end of the year.
    Waiting on pins and needles for the N8...

    So this is interesting, Likely not something anyone would gain anything from in any country that the N7 was banned/recalled but at least they will will not go completely to waste.

    WHY? Why did you have to publish that link when I finally thought this Forum was finally dead. Do you know how many people will get renewed hope, even though the majority of us KNOW it will never make it here to North America or Europe? Oh God, here we go again!

    (And for the record, I really LOVED the Note 7 and am waiting very patiently for the Note 8)

    It won't make it anywhere ... Better to let it rest in pieces and look forward to the next generation.

    C|Net just conveniently left out the "India and Vietnam" part to stir the pot and get a real fever brewing!!!

    This is the exact same source which means it's the exact same amount of almost definitely not true.

    So my take on this is while potentially interesting, If true it's completely meaningless to anyone in a country where the N7 was Banned/Recalled. because it's really unlikely that any bans or restrictions would ever be lifted. I have to agree that it's better to focus on the next generation of the Note.
    (Something else to consider, if it was true and someone with a legitimate re-released device even if re-branded as something else could have problems if they traveled to a location with bans/restrictions in place)

    There's also a danger of a third party market that Samsung wants nothing to do with. If these are for sale and people still have the old ones and sell those pretending they are the new ones, that could lead to what people believe to be the new ones burning and Samsung would be in a world of hurt. The follow up story about it being some fool who got duped with an original Note 7 won't hit anywhere near as many readers as the story of, "re-released Note 7's still exploding".

    Yeah, the larger article mentioned something about a new case too, which would make it more difficult on the older Note 7 owners to sell theirs, if indeed they do that, but who knows. The whole thing is another cluster dum dee dee dumm dumm! Can't we just close the Note 7 Forum and buy our Note 8's... come on Samsung... just release the damned things, please?

    Should be around 7 months out from the Note 8 right?

    Unfortunately, I believe you're correct! BTW, it seems to me that's a new Avatar for you? I like it! If not, I'm 67... I'll blame it on that...
