The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been worked upon and will be sold as Galaxy Note FE. Apparently, FE stands for Fan Edition.
We got bits earlier that Samsung has a team working on the device and it was backed up by some photo leaks of the device. Now, the date of official launch has been declared. It will be on 7th July.
There has been a delay in the launch as the quality of phones supplied to mobile carriers almost became 1.5 times.
Just like the release date, there has been a change in the pricing as well. From 699,999 won (~Rs. 40000) to 740,000 won (Rs. 42000) – 760,000 won (Rs. 43000).
But the most unexpected element is the addition of Bixby button. Bixby is Samsung’s personal assistant which hit the markets this year. It’s debut with Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. Other Samsung device which will have Bixby button is Samsung Galaxy C10.
The features of Galaxy Note 7 FE will be same as that of Note 7. Instead of the battery of 3200mAh capacity, this phone will have 3500mAh battery.
The Note 7 FE will come with 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen of resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels. The PPI of the device is ~518PPI. It comes with Always On display and TouchWiz UI. The phone will have Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the back side.
