Samsung Galaxy Note FE likely to be released on July 7: Report

Samsung previously planned to release this product on June 30

Samsung is all set to launch the refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea on July 7. Dubbed as Samsung Galaxy Note FE, the smartphone is expected to come with a price tag of 740,000South Korean Won(KRW) (approx. Rs 42,209).

According to areport by ETNews, Samsung previously planned to release this product on June 30. However, one of the official claims that it will be delayed by a week, as it decided to supply 450,000 units, which is more than 300,000 units to three mobile communication companies. The report further highlights that the upcoming smartphone will also come loaded with company’s in-house virtual assistant Bixby. However, it is anticipated that the phone will get only Bixby Home button rather than the complete virtual assistant.

Previously, some images of the upcoming phablet were also leaked online which clearly shows ‘R’ symbol on the rear panel to give a proper distinction from the original model. Further, the company is also reported to offer two variants of the Galaxy Note FE. One variant will have a 3200mAh battery, a 300mAh lower battery capacity found on the original model, meant for US, European and Asia Pacific markets. The other variant would feature a similar 3500mAh battery, which contains the modified small-volume battery to prevent any explosions.
Meanwhile, a report by the Investor says that the refurbished model is widely rumoured to be priced about 50 percent cheaper than the original model. The report further denotes that the smartphone is expected to sport a 3200mAh battery and will run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, while other specifications will remain the same.

Earlier the tech giant was severely criticised for its drawback due to a series of explosions caused by the faulty batteries in the Galaxy Note 7. We hope that this new version doesn’t incur such mishaps.
