More details give us a better look at the Galaxy Note 7 ‘Fandom Edition’
Last Fall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 dominated headlines across the globe as it was the first major device to see not just one, but two official recalls. However, Samsung has been working on a new version of the device, which aims to be priced modestly while fixing the battery issues of its predecessor.
It’s unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ‘Fandom Edition’ will ever make it to the States in any official capacity, but new information gives us a look at what’s under the hood. The device has passed through the popular benchmarking site, GFXBench.
These results not only gave everyone the official model number (SM-N935), but also revealed the specs for the device. The Note 7 FE will feature a 5.7-inch display, while being powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8 SoC along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
As for the cameras, it seems that the front shooter will come in at 5MP, while the back of the device will include a 12MP sensor. While not officially shared in these benchmark results, it has been reported that the Note 7 FE will include a 3,200mAh battery.
A report by the Wall Street Journal claims that the Note 7 FE will be priced at around $600 when it ships to South Korea. Additionally, it’s expected that Samsung is planning to ship 400,000 units once the device is launched on July 7th.
This is an interesting time to launch a device which reminds folks of the debacle of 2016, just ahead of releasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
