The Galaxy Note 7 was presented last August. Elegant and racy, he was promised a bright future, but destiny – or fatality – has decided otherwise.
Less than a week after its release, users began reporting reports of overheating and, very soon, the first explosions appeared. Samsung immediately stopped production of the terminal to conduct an investigation and the manufacturer then identified defects on the batteries provided by its own subsidiary.

He then launched a large reminder and launched in the wake a first reissue of the terminal, a reissue equipped with batteries supplied by another giant sector: AHL.
However, he had not planned to face such a volume of orders and chose to ignore the verification procedures to save time.
The replacement models quickly showed the same malfunctions and Samsung ended up permanently suspending the production of the terminal.
The company then found itself with several million phones on its hands and it began working on a second reissue, the famous Galaxy Note 7 FE.
The device looks like two drops of water to the original model and it inherits the same lines and the same materials.
A success in Korea
The data sheet has been slightly redesigned for the occasion and is based on a Super AMOLED screen of 5.7 inches, a Snapdragon 821, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a sensor of 12 million pixels and a Battery of 3,200 mAh, against 3,500 mAh for the original model.
Preferring to proceed in stages, Samsung chose to limit the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 FE to the Korean market at first, with a price a little more attractive. The strategy proved to be successful and the terminal was very successful there.
According to The Investor, the company would now consider launching the aircraft internationally. However, the person concerned did not confirm the information. Not yet, at least.
