Galaxy Note 7 suffered an ill fate due to Chinese battery manufacturer’s fault. It was demoralizing to see how Samsung did everything right with Galaxy Note 7 and a mere flaw in the battery manufacturing process caused it to wreak havoc. We all panicked for a while knowing our favorite Android brand had created a mess. Samsung has now struck back and Galaxy Note Fan Edition (Galaxy Note 7 refurbished) cannot be kept out of the picture.
Samsung is launching Galaxy Note Fan Edition which is Galaxy Note 7 refurbished. Really, it is the same phone with all the same internals apart from the faulty battery. I mean what would’ve Samsung done with all those 3 million handset recalls. Galaxy Note Fan Edition is looking to set the record straight for the Note series.
The battery has been replaced with a new 3200mAh unit down from the 3500mAh. This battery has been tested with Samsung’s new 8 point method to ensure thorough safety of its consumers and in fact its brand image as well. Galaxy Note Fan Edition has the Galaxy Note Fan Edition logo on the back. It runs on Android 7.0 and comes with Bixby installed. Everything else is the same as Galaxy Note 7. The screen comes at a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels at a generous size of 5.7-inches. The display tech used is the best in the market. It is Samsung’s very own Super AMOLED display with curved edges. S Pen is tucked inside tightly. Galaxy Note Fan Edition has IP68 water and dust proof body, a beast of a processor running at 2.4GHz octa-core (Exynos 8890 chipset) accompanied by a standard 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also has the praiseworthy 12 MP f/1.7 PDAF with OIS rear camera. The new edition enjoys the latest skin as on the Galaxy S8.
Samsung lost $5 billion due to faulty batteries. This was one of the largest loss recorded by any tech firm in the recent past. Greenpeace also got involved and urged Samsung to recycle or resell the faulty units. Samsung took charge and is going to resell all those units of our most favorite phablet ever.
It is launching in South Korea for now but will be available worldwide after Samsung decides the markets. At launch there will be only 400,000 units of Galaxy Note Fan Edition. It is going to set you back for $616.
