Samsung unveiled the refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7, dubbed Galaxy Note Fan Edition or FE, in South Korea on July 3, which is poised to go on sale in the country on July 7.
For the unfamiliar, Samsung was compelled to withdraw the Galaxy Note 7 from the market after consumers encountered exploding battery issues. Rumors were rife that Samsung would unveil the refurbished variant of the smartphone in select markets and the device is now being launched exclusively in South Korea. It is not clear whether the Galaxy Note FE will release in the U.S.
Even as consumers await the Galaxy Note 8’s arrival, they would be wondering if it is worth purchasing the Galaxy Note FE instead. While the Galaxy Note Fan Edition is the refurbished model of the Galaxy Note 7, it is not totally identical to the latter and comes with some updated features.
