Samsung to Recover Rare Metals, Components From Recalled Galaxy Note 7 Units

Sales of Galaxy S8 - a strategic smartphone released by South Korea's Samsung Electronics April - has outperformed its predecessor, presenting a rosy outlook that the world's largest smartphone maker is on course to recovering its reputation after the Galaxy Note 7 setback past year.

It said the recycling effort will allow it to collect some 157 tonnes of resources, such as gold, silver and copper, from the process.

It will now collect those devices' camera modules, chips and displays for use as replacement parts on phones sent in for fix. "We will also actively promote measures to utilise these major minerals".

The world's top smartphone maker is trying to move on from the withdrawal of the Note 7 premium devices previous year due to safety concerns, a failure which cost the firm $5.4 billion in operating profit. It has confirmed, however, that only 400,000 units will be made available on its Korean home turf.

Koh Dong-jin, who heads Samsung's mobile business, reportedly said the sales of the Galaxy S8 were 15 percent higher than its predecessor so far during his meeting with local reporters in Taiwan last week, according to industry sources.

Beyond that, all of the specs remain unchanged, so Note FE buyers will find the same 5.7in QHD display, 12MP rear-facing camera, IP68 certification and octa-core processor.
