Samsung could launch a China exclusive Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage

Galaxy Note 7

#Samsung might have skipped the 6GB RAM party with the #GalaxyNote7, but it seems like the company was keeping this variant for the Chinese markets. According to a new benchmark listing emerging out of China, the company will have a China-exclusive 6GB RAM model of the Galaxy Note 7 with 128GB of storage on board. This makes sense as the Chinese market is currently flooded with 6GB RAM phones, so a 4GB RAM handset would seem “underpowered” for the lack of a better word.

We don’t think that this would damage the credibility of Samsung in any way, as the company is merely playing according to the terms set by the rivals. The rest of the hardware specs shouldn’t be any different compared to other models of the Galaxy Note 7. Since China will most likely get the dual-SIM variant, we expect the handset to be packing the octa-core Exynos 8890 SoC. This chipset was also found on some Asian variants of the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge, so customers won’t particularly be surprised.

Do you feel letdown that Samsung probably won’t have a 6GB RAM model of the Galaxy Note 7 in the U.S.?

  1. So if I was to pay a hoard of money for the “US” version, in the back of my mind I’d always be pissed that somewhere in China someone is using the exact same phone, for the same price, that makes my phone look the shit version that came out 2 years ago. Samsung you’re digging your own grave making such stuoid decisions.

  2. Were they to do this I’d be less likely to chose a Note Series device going forward. That’s today. Next year, who knows?
