Samsung has already sold out the Galaxy Note FE — the company sold 400,000 of refurbished Note 7 handsets in South Korea, Korea Herald reported Friday.

Note FE was basically made using refurbished parts retained from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which was recalled after many handsets exploded last year. The refurbished handsets were priced at 699,600 won ($620).

As the Note 7 production is suspended because of its battery issues, the Note FE is equipped with a 3,200 mAh battery.

According to the report, Samsung does not plan to sell any more Note FE handsets in South Korea.

With the Note FE being sold out, the Note 7 chapter ends for Samsung. It has been a long, hard learning curve for the company which has been sued by a number of people. The company was also forced to recall 2.5 million Note 7 units. It incurred more than $17 billion in loss due to the scandal.

Not just that, the loss of reputation for the company was high and its recovery since has been surprising at the very least.

Moreover, the company has since recovered. It has not only launched the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8, but it has actually invested in the smartphone chipset business and gone on to record profits.

The company has also become more innovative — it has endowed its devices with features such as an edge-to-edge display and a 10nm processor.

More importantly, it has sustained the Note brand which was expected to be dead after the Note 7 crisis. Samsung has made a comeback post those issues and is selling the Note 8 at $929 for the unlocked device. The Note 8 comes with a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2960p screen solution and 521ppi display density, but more importantly, it has an infinity display like the Samsung Galaxy S8 which makes it the device with the biggest available surface area.

The device also comes with 3D Touch and always-on display. It has a dual camera at the rear with two 12-megapixel lenses, one wide and one telephoto. Samsung has also made the S-Pen more sensitive and equipped it with advanced translation technology. Pre-orders for the device are set to begin Sept. 15.

Samsung’s recovery post the Note 7 scandal has been shaped by its diversification. The company is expected to make more progress in terms of its innovation and is expected to develop 9nm, 8nm, 7nm, 5nm and 4nm processors. It could also denote the edges of the infinity display with increased functionality.

The company is also expected to develop flexible smartphone displays and develop cameras with features such as depth sensing.

The only thing that remains to be seen is the result of the Note 7 class action suit. Once it is done, the Note 7 chapter will be shut, although it will always serve as a reminder to smartphone companies to maintain quality control.
