Second, salvageable components shall be detached for reuse into other Samsung mobile devices.

Regarding the Galaxy Note 7 devices as refurbished smartphones or rental phones, applicability is dependent upon consultations with regulatory authorities and carriers as well as due consideration of local demand. The markets and release dates of these electronic devices will be determined accordingly.

Refurbished electronic devices

For remaining Samsung devices, components such as semiconductors and digital camera modules shall be detached by companies specializing in such services and used for test sample production purposes.

For left over component recycling, Samsung Electronics shall first extract precious metals, such as copper, nickel, gold and silver by utilizing eco-friendly companies specializing in such separation processes.
