The reincarnation of the doomed Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - the Fan Edition - will finally arrive a few days from now. The Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition or FE will essentially be the same as the controversial Galaxy Note 7 but will be a lot safer than when the Note 7 first came out. The Note 7 FE will also have a few new features.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition will still have the sleek design of the Note 7. It will come in the same metal frame and slightly curved display. Inside the Galaxy Note 7 FE, one will find the same specs used on the Note 7. The processor will still be a Snapdragon 821 while the Note 7 FE will still run on Android 7.0 Nougat.

The few changes on the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 include a displaced Samsung logo, a new branding at the rear, an integrated digital assistant, and a smaller battery. Samsung got rid of the company logo on the top of the display while, at the back, the words "Fan Edition" were added. To distinguish the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition. 9to5Google also reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note FE will now come with Bixby.
