Leading up to August 2nd, rumors were swirling regarding a 6GB of RAM model for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Those rumors were helped along by Samsung conveniently announcing a 10nm LPDDR4 6GB RAM module weeks prior.
But when we got said Note, we didn’t get said 6GB of RAM — it was 4GB. Granted, 4GB is still plenty (so long as memory management isn’t an issue), but for those hoping Samsung would stuff the device with enough RAM to ensure their apps wouldn’t get refreshed each time they exited them, this was a source of disappointment.
So, what happened? Well, it appears Samsung is still looking to push out an upgraded Samsung Galaxy Note 7 model. The device has hit the TENAA with a fresh August 4th listing where the specs show 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This is evidence that Samsung is planning some sort of special release of the phone that offers upgraded internals. It’s not like Samsung to fragment their phones other than using different chipsets for different markets, but there’s a first time for everything.
Long story short, we could still be treated to Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM at some point down the line, but it may be a bit further down the line after the base model is launched, and it may not even be widely available. We’ll simply have to wait and see.
