    It's still not clear whether they will sell outside of South Korea or Not till then its waste talking about it! Still its a one of the best Smartphone of 2016 and dosent feel like to be outdated in 2017 so Why not? and the new reports suggest that it will mainly come in two variants one with smaller battery and other will remain untouched and thats what i am concerned about! Why two models?

    Samsung Galaxy Note 7R listed online for sale will come in two Variants - Gadget Lite

    It says one will have a 3200 mAh battery aimed at Europe, US and Asia Pacific and the other will have a 3500 mAh battery, same as original.

    I also read the 3500 mAh battery being used is a modified, small-volume version of the original battery. What is small-volume?

    Read report that Note 7Rs are already being listed/sold in China!

    Samsung Galaxy Note 7R Reportedly Selling in China Ahead of Launch | NDTV Gadgets360.com

    I have been on the fence for the S8 or G6 but if this is true I would really want to get a 7R. Price is CNY 3,599 which comes to $522 US! $200-300 less than an S8 and less than a G6. And a somewhat limited edition phone if only 300,000 units.

    Busy day but will look more into it later. If anyone has some firm info on a site/outlet in China selling them, please let me know. Just by chance I have family in Shanghai for the rest of the month.

    I don't agree the S8 has more... the S8 is a Note 7 minus the pen features including Note taking on lock screen. If you have no use for the pen then I would say it's not worth it then but for me I'd love have that feature. Smaller battery and SD 820 but I can't imagine if being worse than the S8 at 3000 mah. Also for CNY 3,599 ($522 US) if really being sold in China... Cheaper than the S8 or G6... the Note 7R would definitely keep me entertained for at least a year and hold off on the Note 8 until this time next year. I'm afraid the Note 8 would be monstrous at 6.4" display and over $1k.

    I would not get one simply because the S8+ is so much more than the N7 is. It would be a big step backwards imho. Then the battery is smaller so doubtful it would have the battery performance I am used to on the S8+.

    For die hard Note fans it might be ok. But from a technological view? It is last years tech.......for the price you can get so much from today's phones like the OPO 3t for the same price.
    I would def hold off getting the Note 7r when the Note 8 is just a few months away.
    Then with the smaller battery performance is going to suffer. Did they do anything else to throttle it?

    Still googling for more info so not sure of any throttling. I'm going to guess no. Has Nougat out of box. This site says two variants... one in 3500 mah size. It's still an interesting thought if really is selling in China only because I have family there right now but not even sure if I could get one. For $522 I feel for the specs it is ok. You can't get a pen phone elsewhere (I know LG sells one) and again the Note 8 will probably be over $1K. SD820 but honestly is the S8 really much faster? Doesn't seem much faster than G6. I'm guessing most 835s coming out soon will be faster due to cleaner UI.

    Yeah and I edited my reply above but was mentioning when the Notes were being recalled, people were trying to find Note 5s and Samsung Refurb site was selling them for that much. I'll have to see how real this China selling is though.

    News is flying out fast lately. Well just have to see. Would be nice if they were selling in china now. If it ends up in June, then it doesn't help me. :/

    I'f they sold one that worked on Verizon in the U.S. I would 100% buy it if it was priced at $350 and would consider buying it if at $400 but these rumored prices I have been seeing are too high for me to purchase.

    As someone who almost got stuck mid trip with my Note 7 wondering if I'd be allowed to board the plane to get the thing home with me I don't think I'd get one just because even though it would be an awesome phone and perfectly safe the second looks wouldn't be worth it.

    Yes if its certified by Samsung, but if you get it from any store, then don't go with it.

    Note 7R delayed? Requires more certifications.

    Yes I would. I actually like the design and size over the S8 Plus. More symmetrical, bigger, wider display, S Pen. Just that airlines banned the phone so I wouldn't be able to travel with it.

    I've flown on at least a half-dozen domestic trips this year. I use my Note 5 in an Otterbox Commuter, and the US airlines have not one time asked me if my phone is one of the banned models.
