Samsung is days after from the launch – or rather, the relaunch – of its next smartphone.
The South Korean technology company is bringing back the infamous Galaxy Note 7 next month.
The notorious phablet was subject to a worldwide product recall last year after a number of handsets spontaneously caught fire.

Samsung permanently scrapped the handset in October after the replacement units that were issued following the first recall started to self-combust as well.
A subsequent probe found manufacturing problems in batteries supplied by two different companies – Samsung SDI Co Ltd and Amperex Technology.
Analysis from Samsung and independent researchers found no other problems in the Note 7 devices except the batteries.
As a result, Samsung is set to sell refurbished versions of its its ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea next month.
