About a month ago, three variants of the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which will allegedly be called Samsung Galaxy Note FE, were certified by the FCC.
The three had model numbers SM-N935S, SM-N935L and SM-N935K. From history, these three are supposed to be unveiled on South Korea’s carriers SKT, KT and LG U+, respectively. The trio has also been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance, a confirmation that they have been cleared for release.
Not so long ago, it emerged that the Galaxy Note FE will be unveiled on July 7 and even though Samsung has not confirmed this, the latest development adds more weight to this rumor. Apparently, two other variants of the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have just been cleared by the FCC. We know that European variants of Sammy’s device come with an F at the end of the model numbers and if this is anything to go by, the certified models are meant for this region.
The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been confirmed with model number SM-N935F and SM-N935FD, where the latter represents the dual-SIM variant of the former. In addition to Europe, this F model can also be expected to ship in other markets such as India and Africa, but at this time, Samsung has not confirmed the markets that will see the Galaxy Note FE.
In terms of specs, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come in with the same hardware configuration as the original model. This includes a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with the same QHD resolution, Always on Display and curved edges, an Exynos 8890 SoC paired with 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage as well as a 12MP/5MP camera combination. However, it is thought that the device will ship with a smaller 3200mAh battery unit.
Software-wise, the Galaxy Note FE will debut with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and if the latest reports are to be believed, the device will join the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in shipping with support for Bixby digital assistant out of the box.
