Samsung officially releases Galaxy Note Fan Edition


Many have called on Samsung to recycle the Galaxy Note 7 responsibly, and reselling the phone may have been Samsung's most cost-effective way of doing it. It also has new interface based on Android Nougat. The Snapdragon 821 chipset is under the hood, replacing the Snapdragon 820, with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. Rumors of a refurbished Galaxy Note 7 have spread for a while, but sales in the U.S. have rarely been mentioned.

The handset looks exactly like the Note 7 did.

The Note 7 Fan edition will be released on 7 July for 699,600 Won that's about ~$611 US dollars or ~£470 British Pounds. The company has also announced that it will offer a free cover case that matches the color of the handset.

An unnamed Samsung Electronics official was quoted when they said that the retail pricing for the entry level 64GB Galaxy Note 8 will be as high as $1,100.

Another feature that will be bannered by the Note 8 is the Infinity Display.

Apart from the notorious battery unit and software, everything else is pure Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung has finally relaunched the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 as the Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) in South Korea.

"The latest launch of the Galaxy Note FE ... has a significant meaning as an environment-friendly project that minimized the waste of resources", Samsung said in a statement.

The new device sports a smaller 3,200mAh battery, down from the Note 7's 3,500mAh.

Samsung is all set to release the Galaxy J7 (2017) in its home country South Korea.

In terms of cameras, nothing has changed.

Like the previous Note series, the Note FE, short for "Fan Edition", features a jumbo screen measuring 5.7 inches diagonally and a stylus. We will see if this price tag will still convince users to buy it, especially after what happened with the Note 7. Bixby is on board, and there have been some hardware changes to ensure history does not repeat itself. The handset has been named Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition.
