Samsung unveils redesigned Note 7

Seoul: Samsung Electronics on Thursday unveiled the redesigned version of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, whose production and sale was stopped last year due to repeated incidents of handsets catching fire.
This new modified version, Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) goes on sale on Friday in South Korea, with a price tag of 699,600 won ($607), reports Efe news.
Samsung had to halt production and sales of Galaxy Note 7 (the first-ever withdrawal in the history of mobile phones) due to faulty fire-prone batteries.
The phablet’s fiasco led to a net operating loss of almost 6.1 billion won for Samsung. — AFP
