Galaxy Note 7 relaunched as Galaxy Note Fan Edition in Korea
Samsung has relaunched the Note 7 in Korea under the name Galaxy Note Fan Edition. The Fan editionl is made from parts of the original Note 7 which suffered from battery problems.
It is essentially the same device with a smaller 3200mAh battery to solve the battery explosion problem in Note7 (3500mAh). This time, Samsung have applied the 8-point battery safety test started with the Galaxy S8 to ensure no future incidents happening. In addtion, the Fan Edition also comes with the same new software loaded on S8 and S8+, including with Bixby. Other than that, the rest of the phone is identical to the Note7
Samsung plans to sell 400,000 units of the Fan Edition in Korea but we do not know if they will launch it in other markets as of now.
The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is priced at 699,600 Won ($611) and will be available July 7 in Black Onyx, Blue Coral, Gold Platinum, and Silver Titanium.
