Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Has A New Name
Samsung's refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will no longer be known as such. Reports are saying the supposed Galaxy Note 7R will be officially known as the Galaxy Note FE.
According to Android Headlines, the "FE" stands for "Fandom Edition". Samsung apparently decided to scratch the rumored Galaxy Note 7R name and go with the one that pays tribute to Samsung diehards. The new FE moniker supposedly means that the refurbished smartphone is meant for true fans of Samsung and the Note 7. Another probable reason for the name change is that the Korean conglomerate wants to take out the "7" to at least lessen the stigma of its fiery past.
Apple Insider reported that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 has already received Bluetooth SIG certification on May 12. This bit of news is also indicative of the Note FE's nearing release. The Samsung device also got certification from the FCC and the Wi-Fi Alliance early in the month while it was recently submitted to the National Radio Research Agency or NRRA in South Korea also for certification.
The Samsung Galaxy FE will still come with the impressive features of the Note 7 though it has one major difference - the battery has been replaced with a smaller one. Instead of a 3,500mAh battery, the refurbished Note 7 will pack a smaller 3,200mAh one. This hopefully solved the exploding battery issues of the device.
Many surely still remember that the controversial phablet was recalled due to risks of the battery catching fire. Samsung investigated the matter for months before finding out that the explosions were caused by a design flaw and some manufacturing issues.
Samsung is releasing the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 or the Galaxy Note FE in selected markets particularly in china and South Korea. It is expected to cost around $520, lower than the Galaxy S8's price.
