The handset has undergone a number of changes to make it less prone to exploding than its predecessor, the most significant being the inclusion of a smaller 3,200mAh battery, which has been put through the firm’s rigorous 8-point testing process.
Unlike the original Galaxy Note 7, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition ships with Bixby on board, though customers will likely be pleased to hear that there isn’t a dedicated hardware key to toggle it.
Everything else is identical to the Galaxy Note 7, meaning the handset sports a 5.7-inch display, an Exynos 8890 Octa CPU, a Mali-T880 MP12 GPU, 4GB of RAM, a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
