Samsung Galaxy Note 7 With 6GB RAM And 128GB Storage Headed To China

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 2
During the run-up to the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, there were rumors that the smartphone would ship with 6GB of RAM and perhaps a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. However, when the Galaxy Note 7 was officially introduced earlier this week, its specs more closely aligned with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, meaning a Snapdragon 820 processor and “just” 4GB of RAM.

However, it appears that there was some merit to those earlier rumors — a version of the Galaxy Note 7 will arrive on the Chinese market with 6GB of RAM. And that’s not all; Samsung is also doubling maximum internal RAM capacity from 64GB to a more capacious 128GB. News of this supercharged Galaxy Note 7 comes from China’s TENAA regulatory agency, which is the equivalent to the United State Federal Communications Commission (FCC).


It remains to be seen if this Galaxy Note 7 will make its way to the U.S., and we definitely have our doubts about the possibility. The Galaxy Note 7 is already priced in the stratosphere, ringing in at $849.99 off-contract at T-Mobile and $879.99 at AT&T. 6GB of RAM and`128GB of UFS 2.0 storage could easily push that price tag to $1,000, which is mind-boggling for a smartphone.

Even if we don’t receive this ultra-spec’d Galaxy Note 7, there’s still a lot to love. The smartphone has the same premium materials and tight construction of its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge siblings and a gorgeous 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display. You’ll also find the same well-regarded 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera. Other features include a 3,500 mAh battery, Cat 12 LTE modem, IP68 water/dust resistance, and an iris scanner for added security.

As we mentioned previously, U.S. customers who purchase a Galaxy Note 7 can have a choice of a free 256GB microSDHC or Gear Fit2. To see HotHardware’s hands-on look at the Galaxy Note 7, be sure to check out our article here.
