Galaxy Note 7 Returns as the Galaxy Note Fan Edition

The refurbished variant of the Galaxy Note 7 will officially be called the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, and sales for the device will kick off in South Korea on July 7. As of yet, there is no mention as to whether it’ll be sold in other territories. The phone now features a 3200mAh battery instead of a 3500mAh one.

Samsung is planning to sell just 400,000 units of the device in its home market, with a retail price of 699,000 won ($611). That's 40% less than what the Note 7 retailed for last year. Samsung says that the Galaxy Note Fan Edition is made of "unopened" and "unused" Note 7 parts, with the company reusing the components from the Note 7 to minimize "environmental impact" from having to dispose of 3.5 million devices.
