    Korean carrier confirmed Samsung Galaxy Note FE's 7 July launch

    While it has been known for a long time that Samsung would be launching a refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7. At first, it was expected to be dubbed Galaxy Note 7R. Well, it turns out that the FE stand for Fan Edition. And it is indeed set for a July 7 launch, just like previously reported. The confirmation came from a post by Korean carrier LG Uplus (part of LG Corporation) on Facebook, which has since been taken down. As expected someone did manage to save the picture, which, aside from the July 7 date, states there are limited quantities of the device. The post also detailed that the Note FE will be on pre-order starting today through July 6.
    The Galaxy Note FE sport the same specs as the original model- feature a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Powering the phablet is the Exynos 8890 SoC with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T880 MP12 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The 12MP camera on back has an aperture of f/1.7, which is the same aperture found on the 5MP front-facing selfie snapper. Besides the fingerprint reader, an iris scanner is included. As far as pricing is concerned, speculation has the Galaxy Note 7 (FE) going on sale for the equivalent of $$650-700 USD.

    The refurbished Note 7 will allow Samsung to limit the environmental impact of discontinuing its seventh-generation Note flagship, while allowing fans of the Note lineup. Samsung reportedly took a huge multi-billion dollar hit financially when it finally took the Galaxy Note 7 off the shelves last year.
