According to iFixit, the components inside are essentially the same as the old model. “Beyond batteries, we’ve got exactly the same phone: no evidence of the rumoured processor bumps, and no surprises,” iFixit’s report says.
The only difference, as expected, is the battery, which Samsung bumped down to 3200mAh, from the original 3500mAh unit. The new one is not only smaller, but also lower in capacity, clocking in at 12.32 Wh compared to the original Note 7’s 13.48 Wh.
The Galaxy Note Fan Edition can only be purchased in Korea. Samsung said that other markets will be “decided later”. The next-generation Galaxy Note will reportedly be announced some time next month.
