Samsung plans to introduce newer phones in its refurbishment program

Samsung's refurbishment program, called Re-Newed, doesn't actually sell the company's newest gadgets though. In the UK, the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series are the only ones sold, whereas in the US the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 10 are the models that are available. But if you want the newest Galaxy S22 or other devices like the Galaxy A53 or tablets, you're out of luck. Samsung did offer refurbished gadgets even for its flagship Galaxy S series, however, the company wasn't selling the newer models.

However, that'll change very soon. In a statement to TechRadar, Samsung confirmed that it plans to expand its Re-Newed range to include newer smartphones in the future, so we could see future models like the Galaxy S23, or perhaps current ones, available for a lower cost.

What are Refurbished mobile phones?

Refurbished phones are second-hand devices with one key difference. Instead of being simply re-sold, these devices are tested by engineers to make sure they're up to snuff and parts are often replaced or fixed to make sure the device is in proper working condition. Despite working just like the new gadgets, the refurbished model cost a fair bit less than their new siblings.
