Without much fanfare, the Korean technology giant Samsung has launched the Note FE in Malaysia. The smartphone is a part of Samsung’s commitment towards being environment-friendly by reducing the carbon footprint.
In other words, it is a device assembled using components from the last year’s Galaxy Note 7, except for batteries. Sine the Note 7 was prone to catching fire on its own due to faulty batteries, Samsung has repurposed it with smaller 3200 mAh batch. Samsung claims that it is different from the previous 3,500 mAh battery and has undergone a rigorous safety check.
There’s no other change in terms of specs. The Note FE is dust and water resistant. It is powered by the Exynos 8890 chipset and has 4 GB RAM. It features the same 5.7-in QHD AMOLED screen. You get a 12 MP rear camera and a 5 MP shooter for selfies.
The highlight is Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, which allows users to jot down notes. You can also sketch taking advantage of its pressure sensitive tech. It uses iris scanner and fingerprint sensor to ensure secure login.
Samsung likes to call FE, as Fan Edition. But, you are free to draw out your own version. The device will hit the stores in Malaysia on Oct 25. Available in blue and black, the phone is priced at RM 2,599 (approx Rs 40,000).
