WSJ: Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 7 (FE) on July 7
by Cosmin Vasile / Jun 27, 2017, 3:27 PM
Samsung has been rumored to bring the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 to market sometime in early July, but the South Korean company did not make any official statements regarding the subject.
The Korean media reported earlier this month that Samsung could introduce the Galaxy Note 7 FE (Fandom Edition) on July 7. Well, it looks like Wall Street Journal has it from trusted sources that the Galaxy Note 7 FE will indeed hit the shelves on July 7.
However, the smartphone will only be available for purchase in South Korea. No more than 400,000 units will be spread across all three major carriers in the country, which is a much smaller amount than what it's been rumored in the past.
Samsung was pretty clear that it won't bring the Galaxy Note 7 FE to the United States, but the smartphone will definitely be available outside South Korea. WSJ's report also mentions that Samsung doesn't believe that the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 FE next month will affect sales of the Galaxy S8.
Unfortunately, it's unclear when and what countries will get the Galaxy Note 7 FE other than South Korea. If we are allowed to guess, Samsung won't have too many units up for sale since it's now readying the next Galaxy Note device that's supposed to go official in late August.
There's no official word on price yet, but previous reports claim the Galaxy Note 7 FE will cost around $700 outright in South Korea.

Just like Samsung doesn't sell the Galaxy A series in the United States... But the Note FE should be available via major online retailers, though.

"Samsung won't have too many units up for sale since it's now readying the next Galaxy Note device that's supposed to go official in late August". Then what's the point of releasing this phone in the first place? The Note 8 should be an upgrade to this phone in every way. Bad decision.

The second best phone, until the Note 8 arrives, then 3rd.

That’s a pretty hilarious statement. The Note 7 was never a great phone. Can’t wait for Note 8 tho!

Given that the latest Note 8 renders are looking hideous, I'd rather go for an Exynos version of this guy. Plus, the versatile Bixby assistant will be on board and the fingerprint scanner is where it belongs; on the front. We'll see how the actual Note 8 turns out.

First of all '' refurbished'' is not the right term to call this phone. They have never been sold. They are brand new with redesigned battery. $200/300 less makes it great deal. And even with a bit smaller battery it will top the battery life of the most flagship phones out there. P.S. Still the Note4 is the best all around Note that Samsung made. Although I love the footprint of Note7 and the look.
