iFixit just disassembled it. Copying from The Verge:
The biggest difference is perhaps the most crucial, though: the Fan Edition has a battery thatÂ’s roughly 9 percent smaller, offering 12.32 Wh of charge to the original Note 7Â’s 13.48 Wh battery. The new power cell is also slightly smaller physically. The size is pretty much the same, but the battery itself weights 2.3 grams less than the original version.
The only other change on the hardware end of things that iFixit noticed was a revamped antenna pattern, which the company speculates is for compatibility with Korean networks.
So that's it - no big changes except smaller battery, but that's reasonable because the old one had "problems" if the battery swelled and there was no space for it to expand. Still a great phone.
BDN87, 12 Jul 2017This looks like a re-branded note 7 Oh it is, but wait there's more! It also costs more than the S8! And for that price what do you get? A phone that will not perform as well as the Note 8, which will be available for about the same price in a few months. Not even worth considering until there is a serious price drop in the U.S.
this doesnt make sense at all note 8 is right next door then came up with this plus its very expensive no thank you i love samsung note phones i had a note 4 note 5 and now i have s8+ but his phone doesnt have anything that call my attention i hope note 8 be a huge success because note 7 was gonna be the hit well let see what note 8 gonna bring to us....

Well not useless because of the price difference, There are chances that price of note 8 will be more than US$ 1000 while in other hand its price is 400 US$ cheap than Note 8. And Note 7 FE almost have every thing a flagship should have.
i..O.U.F.A, 11 Jul 2017Useless since Note 8 is releasing next month.Note8 is a waste of money with an aspect ratio higher than Note7. The narrower it gets the less space you have for the spen
Note7 is the best phone of all time.
Kucma, 11 Jul 2017Although I switched to iPhone I still think Note 7 is one of the best phones out there. Can't... moreIPhones are useless expensive piece of an ornament. Note7 FE is the best phone of all times. No no no to Note8 with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
Although I switched to iPhone I still think Note 7 is one of the best phones out there. Can't help to wonder about one thing though. Note 7 has been banned from many airlines. How will you be able to take the FE on the plane? Seems like a lot of hassle if you'll have to prove what phone you have every time you board...
