Earlier today, three variants of the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 — dubbed the Galaxy Note 7R — were spotted on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) online database, suggesting that the official launch of the handset is right around the corner.
The devices brought into the U.S. for testing carry the model numbers: SM-N935K, SM-N935L and SM-N935S. Typically, Samsung reserves the use of K, L and S for the Korean market, leading us to believe they’ll launch first in its home country.
According to a recent report published by ETNews, out of the three-to-four million handsets recalled, it’s believed that just 300,000 will go on sale in South Korea, with each reportedly carrying a price tag of 700,000 won ($620).
Aside from a smaller battery…
Aside from sporting a smaller 3,200mAh battery, the Galaxy Note 7R is expected to be identical to its predecessor, so it should continue to pack a 5-7-inch display, an Exynos 8890 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 12MP rear-facing camera.
