Leaked images show it will be easy to spot a refurbished Galaxy Note 7

Samsung confirmed a few months back that it’s going to release a refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 in select markets across the globe. It’s going to be the same handset that was recalled but with a smaller battery.

Samsung is yet to confirm what it’s going to call the device and how much it’s going to cost. Reports suggest that the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 may be called the Galaxy Note FE or “Fan Edition.” Again, no confirmation from Samsung about this as yet.

If the latest leaked images are believed, it may be very easy to differentiate a refurbished unit from an original Galaxy Note 7 unit. The Galaxy Note FE may have a big “R” symbol at the back on the bottom to denote that it’s a refurbished unit.

It will enable people to ascertain at a glance whether or not it’s a genuinely refurbished unit. This is something we’ve seen in a previous leak as well so the likelihood of this happening is increasing.

Samsung is yet to confirm when we can expect the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 to come out, the markets in which it’s going to be released and how much it’s going to charge for this handset.

As I don’t go on planes, I would not have that problem. We didn’t get the Note 5 in UK- not that I would have bought it anyway- if the price is right, I would buy a Note 7. Not keen on this S8 series, too shattery if dropped.

I doubt it will be easy to bring it with you on an airplane… even with that R on the back side. Security checks personnel might not even know about refurbished Galaxy Notes 7 but all of them know Notes 7 were banned. Of course you can start complaining about that… in the meanwhile you’ve lost your flight.

At least the fingerprint scanner is in the right place;)

i’m sharing your opinion sir, because i find the fingerprint sensor on the S8 to be in the worst place ever

So call it the FE and mark it “FE”, or call it the R and mark it “R” on the back. But to call it by one and mark it with the other; needless scope for confusion.

Looked so beautiful when it was released and next to the S8 it just looks dated. Shame, I can see why they only plan to sell in emerging markets.
