Galaxy Note 7R (FE) speculated to come on July 7 with a $700 price tag

Samsung has long been reported to be preparing a refurbished version of its notorious Galaxy Note 7 for some markets, but the company is yet to confirm the pricing and availability details. A Korean media, however, speculates that the so-called Galaxy Note 7R (or FE – from Fandom Edition) may be coming on July 7 and with a $700 price tag.
If the information happens to be correct, it may mark a release date delay for the Note 7R and a price, which is higher than expected so far. As a reminder, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 was previously reported to be set for a late June release in Korea for a price equivalent to $620 USD. In May, a Galaxy Note 7R device was even listed for sale by a merchant in China, offering two versions: one with 3200mAh and another with 3500mAh battery, priced at the equivalent of $521 and $580, respectively.
But the information, based on “news reports” according to the source, has not been confirmed officially, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. The Korean source doesn’t name specific markets where the sales of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 are expected to start. The two versions we mentioned above were allegedly intended for sale in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific markets, but we doubt that the Galaxy Note 7R would be sold outside of Korea and, possibly, China. After all, the Galaxy Note 8 is just around the corner, and Samsung would perhaps focus on selling its new model globally. At the same time, the speculated $700 price seems a bit steep for a device, which is expected to make a mend for mistakes from the past. Would you spend so much to buy a refurbished Galaxy Note 7?

After almost a year it already would have been 700$ with full battery capacity if nothing had gone wrong. what's so special about this re-release ? just another way of milking a huge pile of cash from their obvious failure. no one with right mind will buy this phone with this price tag specially with note 8 on the horizon.

A year old phone for $700? LOL. The Note diehard folks will eat this up all day long, but the general user is going to run far far away from this "deal"
