Samsung has officially confirmed the release of the Galaxy Note FE, the refurbished, upgraded version of last year’s ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. While it remains to be seen if the refreshed device would see a worldwide release, there is a good chance that the excellent yet short-lived 2016 smartphone might end up competing with Samsung’s own flagship devices on the market today. Specifically, the Galaxy S8+.
The Galaxy S8+ is Samsung’s first phablet flagship for 2017. While the device is pretty much just a supersized version of the Galaxy S8, the S8+ stands over its sibling due to its bigger display and overall usability. Thus, when Samsung releases the Galaxy Note FE on July 7, it would likely meet the S8+ head-on in the mobile market, making the former a pretty formidable alternative to the latter.
