Galaxy Note Fan Edition goes on sale in South Korea

Just 5 days after the unveiling of Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition, the phone has gone on sale in South Korea. It costs KRW699,600 which equals $611 and only 400,000 units will be sold in the initial batch.

The Galaxy Note FE is a reborn Galaxy Note7, but with slight differences. Now it runs on Android Nougat, instead of the original Android Marshmallow 6.0.

Since the battery was the reason Galaxy Note7 caught on fire, Samsung completely overhauled it. Its capacity was decreased to 3,200 mAh, as opposed to the original power cell with 3,500 mAh charge.

The phone is sold in three versions for the three South Korean mobile carriers – SK Telekom, Korea Telekom and LG Uplus.

When the original was released in September 2016, its price tag was close to KRW1 million. Now the Fan Editions price is around 30% cheaper.
