After the Note 7 debacle last year, everyone thought that Samsung would kill the Note line. However, recent leaks have confirmed that the Note 8 will indeed release this year. But Samsung has taken a step further and planned to release a refurbished model of the the Note 7.
This news has been there for some time now and the device is expected to be called the Galaxy Note FE( or the Galaxy Note 7R). Though the launch has been delayed, it looks like the phone may be close to launch.
The Galaxy Note FE(SN-N935) has been spotted on GFXBench earlier today, revealing it’s specifications. The one major change that can be seen is the reduction of screen resolution. The listing claims that the Note FE will come with a 5.7-inch Full HD display as opposed to a Quad HD panel found on the original Note 7. Also for safety, the battery size has been reduced on the Note FE. Therefore the reduction in screen resolution may have been done to provide better battery life.
On the flip side though, most of the other specifications remain the same. The same octa-core Exynos 8890 SoC can be found powering the device. The device has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
As for optics, the same 12MP rear shooter and the 5MP front shooter from the S7 makes a re-appearance. The listing reveals that the device will run on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. The Samsung Galaxy Note FE is expected to be launched on July 7.
