After the horrible death of Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the phone is going to make its comeback in the market. Samsung has decided to launch the refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 which will be known as Galaxy Note Fan Edition. The Note 7 was a phone with great features but some of the units got fire and the company had to call off the device. The fiasco including the smartphone led to the company incurring operating losses of around 6.1 trillion won ($5.2 billion). There are millions of units of the ill-fated device, needed to be fixed both for the financial and environmental expenses.
The company is going to release the smartphone in South Korea on July 7 with a price of 699,600 KRW (or approx Rs 39,498). The FE version will be similar to the original one, the only difference will be in the size of the battery. The Fan Edition will have a smaller 3200 mAh battery compared to the 3500 mAh battery on the original Note with 8-point battery safety check, ensuring no battery explosion.
On the design part, it is quite similar to Galaxy Note 7, with “Galaxy Note Fan Edition” logo on the back. The launch of FE edition will be followed by the next-generation Note 8 which is to be unveiled on August 26 in New York. The colors variants available are Black Onyx, Blue Coral, Gold Platinum, and Silver Titanium. It also has company’s S-Pen stylus. A total of 400,000 units of the refurbished smartphone will enter the market. The relaunch of Note 7 even as FE edition is a good news for its fans. The time will tell if the customers are interested in picking up a refurbed Note 7.
