Last year, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 handset was recalled and discontinued as a result of its fire-prone nature, that almost ruined the reputation of the South Korean Tech Giants.
While a significant number of people still loves the handset and wishes it was never discontinued, it appears, that their wishes have come true.
Just last week, Samsung began pushing out the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 handset bearing the name Galaxy Note FE in South Korea, and it seems like the company is ready to launch the handset outside its home town.
While it was reportedly discovered that the Galaxy Note FE experienced huge popularity since it went on sale in South Korea, the handset is also expected to hit some markets overseas.
As far as we know, just about 400,000 units of the Galaxy Note FE have been launched in South Korean markets, and the company claims it has no plans to push out more in the country.
Seen on sale at a price of $608, the Galaxy Note FE is reportedly 20 percent cheaper than the Galaxy Note 7 and rolls out with a slightly faster Snapdragon 821 processor.
While a faulty battery in the Galaxy Note 7 was discovered to be the root cause of the explosions, this refurbished versions, however, show a safer path with a smaller 3200mAh battery.
Sometime last week, the Galaxy Note FE received a few software updates which brought along Samsung’s artificial assistant Bixby and Android Nougat.
