Samsung hasn’t developed exactly what its disposal procedure for the Samsung Note 7 involves. But environment-minded administrations like Greenpeace might compulsion the company to be transparent about the way it disposes of so many smartphones over the coming weeks and months. The organization issues a maintainability report, however, hasn’t yet calculated the Note 7 review into those figures.

Samsung won’t recover the $5.4 billion in benefit it lost because of the Note 7’s disappointment by recovering parts and metals. By doing this, it’s remaining true to the potential it made back in March to reuse the devices in an environmentally-friendly way.
