Samsung Galaxy Note 7/Note FE Android phablet might launch globally soon

Although we heard that Samsung only plans to sell 400,000 Galaxy Note FE units in South Korea, it seems like the global market is supposed to get the refurbished Note 7 as well.

The ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 is not gone, and it seems most of the withdrawn units are coming back. The only difference between the original Note 7 and the refurbished one that is going to hit the market as Galaxy Note FE is the battery - the original had a 3,500 mAh capacity, while the new one only provides 3,200 mAh.

According to The Investor, the 400,000 Galaxy Note FE units to hit South Korea will not be followed by a second batch. However, that only seems to be true for Korea, since the global market should get the refurbished Note 7 as well. Unfortunately, the details are not official yet.

The source mentioned above also mentioned that the Note FE comes with Bixby and that "Samsung said it would later decide whether it would sell the FE in other global markets, and some industry sources expect the global release of the phablet later this month."

These being said, we should wait for the global revival of the Galaxy Note 7.

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.
