It will go on sale in South Korea on July 7, with Samsung leaving open the possibility it will be placed on sale in the wider world by saying such a decision will be "decided later".

Samsung Electronics had revealed earlier this year that the upcoming Note 7 FE will have the same design as Note 7 and will have UX of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus.

Instead, it has been rumored to get a Snapdragon 821 coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. It was also one of the most expensive Samsung phones with the price starting at $850.

However, with a run that is very limited of just 400,000 to start, it is only a drop in the sea, considering that Samsung sells millions of phones each time a new version is launched, said an industry analyst located on Seoul. The second batch also tended to overheat, prompting Samsung to discontinue the Note 7.

Renewed Version Of Galaxy Note 7 To Be Sold In South Korea
The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices that are to be offered with new batteries, will be called the Galaxy Note 7, Fan Edition. That said, it is still not recommended to get the update installed in case your device is running low on battery.

According to a rumor originating from a Chinese source, the Galaxy S8 mini is expected to feature a 5.3-inch display, though details on the resolution have not been stated.

The phone was also banned on flights when images of a scorched Note 7 were shared on social media. Once the app is installed on both your smartphone/tablet and Windows 10 device, fire it up on both gadgets.

The previous edition of the smartphone was rolled out in June 2016 while it was announced in May 2016. The phone will come with the special features i.e. two Bixby features which are the virtual assistant, Bixby Reminder and Bixby Home. The smartphone is IP68 dust and waterproof. Samsung spent billions of dollars to recall the Note 7 and fix its damaged brand. There are some small changes from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The phone will cost almost 30% less than what the original Galaxy Note 7 retailed for, at around 700,00 Korean won ($615; £472 ). It has the same dual- edge screen and the metal and glass body users went crazy for last year.
