It has been three months since the Galaxy Note FE was launched in South Korea. According to a new report, the Galaxy Note FE Malaysia launch could take place soon. The refurbished and safe variant of the Galaxy Note 7 was first released in South Korea where it quickly sold out. Previous reports have suggested that Samsung might launch this handset outside its home country.
It’s essentially the same handset as the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. The only major difference is that the Galaxy Note FE has a smaller 3,200mAh battery. The original Galaxy Note 7 had an unsafe 3,500mAh battery.
Galaxy Note FE Malaysia Launch
A list of 4G LTE devices supported by Yes includes the Galaxy Note FE, complete with a “NEW” bubble to indicate that this handset is a new arrival. Yes is a major carrier in Malaysia. The Galaxy Note FE is positioned right next to the Galaxy Note 8 on this list.
Yes normally lists handsets that are officially available in the country, therefore, this is a good indication that the Galaxy Note FE Malaysia launch might take place soon. Samsung is yet to confirm or deny this, though.
Samsung sold the Galaxy Note FE for 699,600 won or $608 in South Korea so it’s likely going to cost the same in Malaysia. Those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on the Galaxy Note 8 can certainly consider the Galaxy Note FE as a viable alternative.
