The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note FE to be launched on July 7

Good news for Samsung Galaxy Note fans, as the South Korean company is expected to launch the refurbished version of the Note 7 early next month.

According to the Korean media, Samsung had to delay the launch of the so-called Galaxy Note FE by one week, so instead of bringing it to the market on June 30, the phablet will now be available for purchase on July 7.

As far as price goes, the Galaxy Note FE will sell for around $620 in South Korea. Also, Samsung has decided to boost the number the units available for purchase from 150,000 to 450,000, which is one of the main reasons the launch of the smartphone was delayed.

In order to make the Galaxy Note FE more appealing, Samsung included its Bixby digital assistant, a mobile operator official said. However, a Samsung rep stated that his company can't yet confirm the availability of Bixby on the Galaxy Note FE. However, he said that Samsung “will work in various ways to meet consumer expectations.”

Samsung Galaxy Note FE will not be officially introduced in the United States, but other countries might get it soon after its release in South Korea.

I'm pretty sure consumer expectations do not include Bixby :)

Why would you bring up a feature that right now is exclusive to a particular model? I mean what a waste of space your post is! Being a troll, must make you very happy.

I want the Note 7 but personally couldn't care about Bixby. It's the S Pen that counts.

The phone is lest than a year old, and retailed for $850. $620 is a very good price for a full factory refurb that is less than one year old. It costs less than a new S7 which was $650 and the Edge model was $750. So its a good price...stop being salty! You aren't winning this year...that's why you're so salty! Lebron going down in flames tonight.

At 620$ it should be called "Fools Edition" . Wait a couple of months more and buy the Note 8 for 800$. Money better spent.

@POST 11 - Suppose a person doesn't want a 6.4 inch display? Suppose they want a home button? Suppose they just like the Note 7? You don't want the phone. Right? Why do you care if someone else might want it. Its a flagship that is less than a year old, and is cheaper now than it would have been if it was never recalled.

How is your new phone going? I remember you said you wanted an XZ Premium. Did you get it?

At last a worthy successor to my Note 4, hopefully.

So, the ''issue'' of the Note7, turned out to be great deal for the consumers. The King is back!!!! BTW it's not really '''refurbished''. The devices were never sold or used. It's just redesigned brand new device.(only the battery) And still will have better battery life than the last iPhone for the same use.
