Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage still possible, at least in China
After presumably testing a bunch of different Galaxy Note 7 configurations, with both flat and dual-edged screens, RAM counts of 4 and 6GB (possibly, even 3), Snapdragon 820 and 821 processors, as well as Exynos 8890 and 8893, the time came for Samsung to make some very tough decisions.
Ultimately, reason prevailed over vanity, and (relative) affordability came before another prospective charge in the ongoing spec wars. But still, not everyone is happy, and many of the company’s fans wonder why they can’t be offered a choice.
It turns out at least the privileged inhabitants of China may soon get to pick between 4/64GB and 6/128 Galaxy Note 7 models. That’s right, the latter spec-busting variant has a strong likelihood of an eventual regional release, being not only benchmarked recently, but also paying Tenaa a quick regulatory visit.
The “entry-level” SM-N9300 cleared certification at FCC’s equivalent in the world’s largest smartphone market roughly a month ago, inconspicuously followed by the top-shelf derivation we lost all hope for yesterday. And while a Geekbench stop simply means a certain device was in the works at some point, Tenaa’s reveal suggests a 6GB RAM Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still coming… in China. For a premium, mind you, with a set of super-high-end features many believe to be overkill.
