Few devices prompt anticipation and enthusiasm from fans the way Samsung flagships do. And if you count yourself a real fan, then you probably already know that there’s a new Galaxy Note in town—in fact, it’s one you’re probably quite familiar with.
The Galaxy Note Fan Edition takes the unused components of the Galaxy Note7 and upcycles it to create a device that stays true to the impressive features available in all of Samsung’s flagships. You still get the best features of a Galaxy Note phone, while ensuring that the Galaxy Note FE stays true to its environment-friendly concept and helps reduce its carbon footprint. The Galaxy Note FE is Samsung’s direct response to the company’s commitment to responsibly dispose the Galaxy Note7 devices.
Quality Focused and Environmentally Friendly
The Galaxy Note Fan Edition will feature refined craftsmanship, premium materials and a unique, symmetrical edge design. Featuring a fully water-resistant body and S Pen (IP68), top-of-the-line security as well as immersive entertainment capabilities, the device strikes a perfect balance of work and play, enabling people to achieve more than what they thought possible on a smartphone.
This means that you can expect it to come with the top of the line Exynos 8890 Octa Core Processor with 4GB of RAM, a massive 5.7 inch QHD display with a crisp, 2,560 pixel, Super AMOLED screen, and an impressive 12-megapixel dual pixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front facing camera.
“The move to re-engineer a flagship device to create an environmentally friendly, safe, and ultimately improved reincarnation of a fan favorite is meant to satisfy loyal followers of the Galaxy Note series,” shares Nio Judalena, Marketing Head for IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Philippines, Corp.
Fan Favorite Features
In addition to the renewed focus on quality assurance, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition delivers the key features and experiences Note users expect.
The S Pen has been the defining feature of the Galaxy Note—and the Galaxy Note FE makes sure that fans will continue to enjoy this iconic tool. The S Pen replicates the ease and accuracy of a real pen with precision and power so you can bring ideas to life—even without unlocking the screen by using Screen Off Memo and pinning the memo to the Always On Display. The S Pen also gives users the ability to easily create and share GIF animations with Smart Select while Air Command functions, including Magnify and Translate, enable users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages by simply hovering.
In terms of entertainment, the Galaxy Note FE’s 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display enables a cinema-like experience with vivid color contrast including brighter colors and a deeper black. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is HDR streaming ready to deliver the full viewing experience that the filmmaker intended.
The Galaxy Note FE also has the Dual Camera feature, letting you keep your favorite moments in the best quality and take stunning photos even in low-light conditions.
For security, the device features top-of-the-line biometric authentication with iris recognition technology and fingerprint scanning, coupled with Samsung Knox, a world-class security platform.
And to make sure that your device stays with you wherever you go, the Galaxy Note FE is also IP68 Water and Dust Resistant, which means it’s water resistant up to 1.5m for 30 minutes.
 Dust and water resistant based on IP68 rating, which tests submersion up to 5 feet for up to 30 minutes
