After the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 was withdrawn from the market, Samsung relaunched it as Galaxy Note FE with a smaller battery. The availability of the Galaxy Note FE was also limited to very few markets. Almost two years after the announcement, the company is now releasing the Android 9.0 Pie update for all the Galaxy Note FE smartphones. It was earlier spotted benchmarking websites running on Android 9.0 Pie.
The company is now starting to roll out the OTA update for all users in an incremental manner. If you are a Galaxy Note FE user, you will be seeing the notification about a new software update in the coming days. This new update also replaces the TouchWiz UI with the latest One UI which is designed for a single hand usage. The update comes in 1588MB size and includes March security patch update.
Once the device is updated to the latest OS, the Samsung apps also need to updated manually to get the One UI theme all over the device. The Android 9.0 Pie update could be the last major software for the Galaxy Note FE smartphone. The device was initially launched with Android 7.0 Nougat. It features a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. It comes powered by the in-house Exynos 8890 processor.
Talking about the cameras, the Galaxy Note FE sports a 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP front camera with the same f/1.7 aperture. Compared to the Galaxy Note 7, the Galaxy Note FE packs a smaller 3,200mAh battery. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the upcoming Samsung smartphones!
