Galaxy Note7 Fan Edition: Refurbished Note7 with Safer Batteries

Samsung Electronics to launch refurbished Note 7 phones in South Korea from July 7

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/...july-7-8996832

From article

Samsung said in a statement it will offer 400,000 phones, dubbed the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition, in its home country priced 699,600 won (US$611) - about 30 percent lower than the Note 7's original launch price. The devices will be made from recalled, unsealed Note 7 handsets and unused Note 7 components.

Batteries for the refurbished devices will have a lower capacity than those of the original Note 7s, but have passed new safety measures implemented following the recall, Samsung said.

The firm said it will decide whether to sell the refurbished Note 7s in other markets at a later date. It has said it does not plan to offer the device in the United States or India.

Let's discuss about the Note7 FE in this thread, instead of in other threads meant for other Samsung phone series

Will you be getting the Note7 FE?

If Singapore is not selling the Note7 FE, will you be using imported sets?

Currently using Note 5 as a secondary driver. Last year was going to get Note 7 to replace it because 64gb no enough...then because of discontinuation got xperia xz as a primary driver.

Given how expensive the note 8 will probably be, I might give this FE a chance, provided it hits SG with price less than 700S$.Otherwise would rather wait for note 9 in 2018.

BTW 699600 won = 841 S$. Too expensive unless they throw in freebies and perks.

Hopefully the latest software used in this Note7 FE will apply to last year's Note7 so that I can update my current Note7 software.

U11 and Xzp cost about 200+ more than this.BTW I checked samsung korea http://www.samsung.com/sec/smartphones/galaxy-note-fe-n935/SM-N935SZBASKO/
And it seems that existing note 7 acessories are incompatible, alongside the gear VR...although I know XDA developers will probably hack it somehow.

The accessories looks the same as Note7 to me, at least for the clear view cover.

hope it brings in to SG, definitely will get this one, will be getting coral blue instead since I have already the black version of Note7.
