Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 may actually be called the Galaxy Note FE

Samsung has already confirmed multiple times that it will soon release a refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 with a smaller battery. The handset is only going to be sold in select markets. Samsung is yet to confirm what it’s going to be called and how much it’s going to cost.

Previous reports have suggested that it could be called the Galaxy Note 7R. That makes sense, given that the letter “R” in that moniker would stand for refurbished. Leaked images of the device also reveal that it’s going to have a big “R” printed at the bottom of the back to signify that it’s the refurbished model.

However, if a new report out of South Korea is to be believed, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 might actually be called the Galaxy Note FE. The FE reportedly stands for “Fan Edition.” I’m pretty sure many would think that Samsung should have gone with Galaxy Note 7R instead.

Perhaps the company is trying to ditch the bad reputation associated with the Galaxy Note 7 so it has decided to make no mention of that ill-fated flagship. The FE moniker also suggests that this handset is really meant for fans who want to hold on to the Galaxy Note 7 even if that means settling for a smaller battery. All other specs are going to remain the same.

Still, since nothing has been officially confirmed by Samsung as yet, take this with a grain of salt. Reports suggest that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 might cost half of what the original handset did.

If a great device, but fails like the Note7 is called the “Fan Edition”..

All iPhones should also be called iPhone SuperFan Edition.
Not even close to Note7′s awesomeness, but people still buy them anyways.

Only makes sense to sell this in emerging markets, Note 8 is probably only 3 months away so what’s the point.

Because the Note 8 will cost probably near or over £/€/£ 900. If this refurbished Note 7 is priced competitively (below $/€/£ 600 preferably $/€/£ 550) would be a good option for those not wanting to spend that much on Note 8.
Infinity display apart and provided it doesn’t have any other issue this phone is as good or better than the S8/S8+ in many ways.

Dropping the 7 is the best possible idea, right now it’s just a curse. Also transport authorities would be a lot less suspicious and distrustful. The FE for “Fan Edition” is crap but any name without the 7 is better.
