The launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is scheduled to take place on August 26 in China and Samsung has already begun sending out invites for the launch. Going by the company’s recent statements and a listing on certification site Tenaa, a variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage is expected to be launched by the South Korean giant in China.
The Chinese certification site Tenaa mentioned a listing earlier this month which indicated that there could be a 6GB of Ram/ 128GB internal storage variant for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in the Chinese market. Further Samsung’s mobile division’s president Dong-jin Koh responded to the ensuing rumours about this variant, and confirmed that the company was “reviewing” the launch of a Note 7 variant with increased memory capacity in China exclusively in order to compete with local manufacturers.
Nonetheless, Koh has also admitted while making this statement that a move like this by the company might end up disappointing its South Korean consumers.
As per a report by Playfuldroid, it has been confirmed by Samsung that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage will be launched exclusively for China at the company’s official event on August 26.
But there has been no official confirmation yet if this 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy Note 7 will be successfully launched in other countries, as per the report.
It is interesting to note that the Snapdragon 820 SoC will power the Chinese variant of the phone instead of Exynos 8890.
We will have to wait and see if Samsung would launch a 6GB RAM variant in South Korean market to please its local customers or make the phone variant available in select countries or even keep the variant exclusive to China.
