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

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.

I’m not surprised at all. A lot of people said it was overpriced and I agree the cost was high for what it is, but I knew they would sell them all so it made sense to price it that way.

"#Note7rules... still haven't forgotten that hashtag!" That was a thing? Seems extremely cheesy to me. (And before any of you usual tards hunk your Apple garbage at me, I'm pretty sure I've never seen a #iPhoneinsertnumericalvaluehererules anywhere... ever. You dudes are WAY too lame to make stuff like this a thing. Enjoy your phone and be quiet.)

You want me to said that to EVERYONE who visits this site. How retarded are you? Maybe I would do that but I don't have as much free time as you have and I don't live in this site like you. I only visit this site only once or twice a day. So it's not possible to do that for me. But you can do that since I saw you do that during note 7 saga. I'm wasting my time replying to a retarded samsung wh*re like you who had a metal breakdown during the note 7 saga and still can't help but post note7rules. Fu*king moron.

I have this site on an RSS live feed sent to my notifications, so I stay updated in news without actually browsing the PA website. And talking about having free time, it obviously depends on the type of job one does.

Yeah, I can see that doing PR for the samsung mobile department is a really easy job. You get a lot of free time. Maybe I should apply too. Any advice for the application senpai?
