A component teardown shows the Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition is just a Note 7 with a smaller battery
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is back — mostly.
A non-flammable version, the new Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition, went on sale today, but Samsung's never explained which parts would be different.
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 rumored 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.
