Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (FE) sold out two months after launch

10

The refurbished Galaxy Note 7, also known as Fan Edition, made its debut in South Korea in early July. Two months after its launch, the phablet appears to be sold out and Samsung doesn't have any plans to sell more Galaxy Note 7 (FE) units on its home turf.

Sources familiar with Samsung's plans claim the company is still considering overseas releases for the Galaxy Note 7 (FE) after selling about 400,000 devices in South Korea.

Samsung has put a price tag of around $620 on the Galaxy Note 7 (FE), about $265 cheaper than the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 model. The refurbished model packs a smaller 3,200 mAh battery inside, as opposed to the original's 3,500 mAh battery, which was the reason of its global recall. Other than that, the Galaxy Note 7 (FE) and the original model are similar when it comes to specs.

In the meantime, Samsung has already opened Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders in South Korea, as the new flagship is expected to hit the shelves on September 15. Unlike the previous model which came slightly cheaper, the Galaxy Note 8 is likely to cost the equivalent of $960.
