The ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to return to the market in early July. This time, it will be sold as Galaxy Note 7 FE (Fandom Edition). The first country to get it would be South Korea, for a price tag of around $615 USD.

After recalling all Galaxy Note 7 phablets manufactured and sold or still found in stores, Samsung was expected to get rid of them. However, they chose to replace the batteries and bring them back in the game, but this time as Galaxy Note 7 FE. FE stands for "Fandom Edition" and has nothing to do with fire and explosions, reveal insiders familiar with the matter.

Unfortunately, Samsung still has to confirm these rumors. According to an article published by The Wall Street Journal, the first batch of 400,000 Galaxy Note 7 FE units will be delivered to the three major telecom companies in South Korea by July 7.

These unconfirmed reports also claim that the price of a Galaxy Note 7 FE phablet would be below ‎₩700,000 KRW - roughly $616 USD. Obviously, the specs of the "new" handset would be similar to the original Note 7, except for the battery. We will get back to this topic as soon as Samsung finally decides to make the refurbished phablet official, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
