The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is an impressive smartphone, but some were hoping that the rumoured 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the device was…well, more than just a rumour. Now, however, it appears this variant of the Note 7 does exist. The caveat? It might only be sold in China.
This particular variant of the Galaxy Note 7 appeared on TENAA, which is China’s certification body. More likely than not, the Chinese market will receive a Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, although this isn’t exactly confirmed until Samsung officially announces yet. Nonetheless, this does show that there are other variants of the Note 7, although it has only been registered with TENAA for now.
While some would argue that 6GB of RAM is unnecessary for a smartphone, it’s entirely possible Samsung is releasing such a variant in China to compete with other Chinese smartphone makers. OnePlus, for one, has the OnePlus 3, not to mention the vivo Xplay5, which was released in China back in March this year.
Whether or not Samsung will introduce this variant of the Galaxy Note 7 anywhere outside of China still remains to be seen. After all, the variant hasn’t even been officially announced in China yet. Regardless, we will definitely keep a close eye on this.
