Samsung rations the Note FE sales in Korea, may release a global version soon
Note 7, carrying the same parts (save for the battery pack), and newer software. The blue versions have been particularly in demand, report industry watchers.Daily activations prior to its launch have hovered at about the 15,000 mark, whereas since the Note FE hit the market in Korea, that number has increased to 24,000. Nevertheless, Samsung is content with the units it has scraped together so far, and says it doesn't plan to add any more on the market, at least in its home turf. The phablet sells for the equivalent of $608, which is a fifth less than the original
Samsung, however, may be sparing units for a global rollout of the Note FE in select markets, which sources indicate may be powered by Snapdragon 821, instead of a homebrew Exynos chipset. The industry sources say that Samsung might announce that foreign-bound Note FE as soon as this month, so we'll keep our ears to the ground.
