Last year, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 caught fire and is forced to sell a recall called the Galaxy Note Fan Edition (FE). The unused parts used to make this launch will be released on July 7 in South Korea sold at 699,600 won ($609) which is about one third cheaper than the original Note 7.
After launching the Note 7 last year, reports claimed that its batteries were very prone to overheat and catch fire. In less than a month, Samsung recalled the Note 7 and released another one with replaced batteries. However, this second release still was likely to overheat leading Samsung to discontinue the Note 7 completely.
Following this, Samsung lost billions of dollars in profit leading to a recall. South Korean tech giants would reuse electronics parts to reduce waste to make the Galaxy Note FE. The new and improved Galaxy Note offers a large screen and stylus that differentiates it from many other devices on the market. The Android software would be upgraded to be the same as the Galaxy S8 and the S8+. The Galaxy Note FE would also be getting Bixby which is Samsung’s smart assistant, a competitor of Apple’s Siri. Waterproof features as well as fingerprint and eye scanner would be included in the FE. This recall could lead to the release of the Note 8 in the near future.
