According to famous Korean news source ET News, the Galaxy Note 7 FE will officially be launched in South Korea on July 7. We knew that it's coming but now we have a date to look forward to. Although I did say "a date to look forward to," the smartphones will most likely not see the light of day in the US or Europe. Interestingly enough, various reports from around the internet are also indicating the the refurbished phones will be packing Samsung's Bixby digital assistant.
Previous reports had suggested that the Note FE would be released by the end of June, but those plans changed once Samsung decided to change up their production numbers by quite a bit. Instead of the 150,000 units which were going to be sold in the country, they have now decided that 450,000 Note 7 FEs will be introduced in South Korea. This move is clearly a result of Samsung sensing a bigger market for the refurbished smartphones than they had anticipated earlier. The Note FE will be exclusive to three South Korean carriers for now and Samsung has not yet revealed any plans of bringing the handsets outside of South Korea till now.
