Another variant of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 passes through the FCC


Last updated: June 13th, 2017 at 09:44 UTC+02:00

Less than a month after three models of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7, which has been dubbed the Galaxy Note FE, were granted approval by the FCC, another one has been spotted making its way through the authority’s certification process, seemingly corroborating rumors claiming that the handset will launch in South Korea on July 7.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any solid information pertaining to the Galaxy Note FE. That said, recent reports from credible sources suggest that it’ll sport a similar design to the Galaxy Note 7, though it should have a sizeable ‘R’ symbol on the back to indicate that it’s a factory refurbished unit.

The Galaxy Note FE is also expected to pack almost the same internals as its predecessor. If that turns out to be the case, it will have a 5.7-inch display, an Exynos 8890 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. However, it’s said to have a smaller 3,200mAh battery.

As we’ve said in the past, out of the three-to-four million Galaxy Note 7 units recalled last year, it’s believed that only 300,000 will go on sale in South Korea, with each reportedly carrying a price tag of 732,000 won ($650). Pretty expensive for a device that’s almost a year old, right?
