As per the news this will be limited in number around 400k units will be made.
The company has said that “overseas sales will be decided later”, so if and when the US, UK, Australia and elsewhere will get it remains to be seen.
The company plans to sell 400,000 units in its home country, and that figure and date match up with earlier rumors.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition is launched in South Korea for 699,000 won (around $610/£470/AU$795), which is significantly less than the $880/£749/AU$1,349 price of the original Note 7.
The original price in other countries likely won’t be a direct conversion, but we’d still expect it will be a lot cheaper than the Note 7 ever was.
That was all about the Note FE. I hope this version of note series will also do good in the market like his old family members except Note 7.
