INTRODUCTION

Samsung Galaxy Note FE

The Galaxy Note 7 disappeared from the shelves before one could say checkmate, but not in a good way. The Note 7 became a meme for online jokes, even going so far so as to become the new explosive for terrorists. Samsung needed to do something and do it fast. In a hurry, they took back all the units that were sold in, and decided to reintroduce them as new devices, after they had done with the repairs.

After the long awaited the revived Note 7 is making its debut as the new Note FE (i.e., Fandom Edition) also known as the Note 7R. The refurbished device hasn’t been made official yet but has surfaced on a Korea-based retailer’s website. The price, however, is quite high, taking into consideration that the device is a remake of a previous model. According to the same website, the price is somewhere between 600 to 625 US dollars.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

The Super AMOLED display of the Note 7 is replaced by the new and improved QHD display of the Note FE. The usual curved display will retain all its other features since there were no problems detected in that area. The 5.7-inch FullHD 2560 x 1440 display will have a pixel density of 518 ppi along with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The design for most parts remains the same and any changes done is practically undetectable, provided that have made any kinds of alterations to the device other than the batteries. The Note FE comes with a full metal body and front mounted fingerprint scanner, same as the Note 7. Though the device has not been made available worldwide, we speculate that it will have the new UI along with the HDR10 feature, same as the Note 7.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

The new Samsung Note FE will be powered by the octa-core Exynos 8890 64 bit processor. Four of the cores will be clocked at 2.3 GHz and the other four at 1.6 GHz. Unlike the USA variant where the Note 7 only had a quad-core processor, the new Note FE mirrors the second variant that was released worldwide. Powered by the Mali-T880 MP12 graphics processor the Note FE is making a comeback alright, but the steep price tag may pose a problem in the future.

The device was rumored to be made available at half the price of the Note 7 which makes it somewhere around 29k. Contrary to the latest market survey, the Note FE has a price tag of ~40k and that too in some selected markets. Samsung intends to make this a garage sale and salvage what little they can from the once defected device, which explains such drastic measures taken by the company.

The Note FE will most probably have 4GB of RAM with 64GB of inbuilt and 256 GB expandable storage. There will be no other variant with lesser specs. Also, the device will have Android Marshmallow instead of Nougat for some unknown reason. It is highly unlikely for people to spend much over a backdated OS.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

Since the Note FE is a large scale well-orchestrated repair job, the device won’t be having any dual cameras and instead, will have a 12 Megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter, much like the Samsung Note 7. Assuming the cameras are the same and untouched, video recordings are done at 2160p@30fps and can be dialed down to lower resolution settings.

One more reason why Samsung should have either dropped the price or have included a secondary rear camera, is that most devices at this range either already do, soon will sport a dual rear shooter. For a device to lag behind here, it will have a hard time making a mark of its own in the smartphone world.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

In terms of battery, the Note FE will be receiving a nerf. The original Note had a 3500 mAh battery, while its successor will have only a 3200 mAh. The extra 300 mAh may not matter that much, but the idea that it was downgraded, may put a frown on some faces. Nonetheless, it will have 4G capabilities along with a dual sim support.
