Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Back From The Dead, Spotted on GFXBench
A few months from now Samsung will unveil the new Galaxy Note 8 and it is expected to be a lot better and safer than its predecessor. Before that happens, however, the Korean tech giant will release the Galaxy Note 7 for the third time and this time, it will be known as the Note 7 FE or "Fandom Edition."
A recent leak indicating that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 FE underwent a 3D Graphics Performance or GFXBench test is proof that the phablet is indeed coming real soon. The GFXBench indicated that the device being tested is a Samsung Galaxy Note 7R which is another name attached to the Fandom Edition.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 FE or 7R will be powered by Samsung's very own Exynos 8octa-coree 2.6GHz processor. It will also run on Android 7.0 and will come with a 5.7-inch touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 5 finger gesture support. GSMArena reported that the other specs detailed in the GFXBench are an ARM Mali-T880 MP12 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB built-in memory, a 12-megapixel primary camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
The reason why the phablet is being dubbed the Galaxy Note 7 Fandom Edition is that it is intended for true blue Samsung fans. The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will apparently be sold for around $616, as reported by "Wall Street Journal." Only 400,000 units of the Galaxy Note 7 FE will be among the first batch of deliveries that will hit shelves early next month. That figure is a far cry from the estimated 3 million Galaxy Note 7 units that were recalled because of issues with their batteries. Since the recall, Samsung was able to identify the root cause of the exploding batteries and has since made the necessary alterations to prevent any more untoward incidents.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 FE will drop into South Korean stores on July 7. A few other countries are supposedly getting a "relatively modest" number of Galaxy Note 7 FE units though it is still not clear which nations are getting the refurbished phablets.
