The safer version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will not be launched this month. According to reliable sources, its retail name will be either Galaxy Note FE or Galaxy Note 7R and its release date has been pushed back to July. This refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 will possibly share the same specs and colors' sheet with the original model.
Meet The Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7
The original Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was, indeed, a fantastic smartphone, but sadly it had a major problem with the sole unit catching fire because of its battery. According to TechRadar, it is important to note that this anticipated smartphone isn't the Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be an entirely new and different phone that will come out in the month of August or September.
Until now, the name of the next version is still unknown. The FE in the name "Samsung Galaxy Note FE" is rumored to stand for “Fan Edition” and it would make sense for the South Korean company to avoid the Note 7 name, even though it’s just the renewed smartphone model. While the R in the "Samsung Galaxy Note 7R" stands for the word refurbished.
Same Specs And Colors' Sheet With The Original Note 7
Leaked information suggests that the upcoming refurbished version of Galaxy Note 7 will have the same specs as the original model. Meaning, it will also have the Samsung's Exynos 8890 chipset and will have a RAM of 4GB. Aside from that, it is also expected to come with 64GB of storage and will support a microSD slot of up to 256GB.
According to BGR, it is expected to launch with the latest Android 7 software and may see the upgrade to Google's Android O when that launches before the end of this year. Aside from the same specs and colors' sheet with the original Galaxy Note 7, the refurbished version is also expected to feature a 5MP selfie shooter and a 12MP rear camera.
The color option availability is expected to be the same as the original device. These include the Black Onyx, Blue Coral, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium color options.
