Samsung confirms that a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is on its way


Rumor had it Samsung was planning a model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that sports 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage out of the box. When the device launched, it only had 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but evidence of the former model’s existence continued to reveal itself in the form of a TENAA listing.

Well, Samsung has finally confirmed that they are, in fact, working on bringing that device to market. Unfortunately, the news is bitter-sweet — or just plain bitter for many — as Samsung is only planning to launch the thing in China.

Their reasoning is that many players in the country are starting to push devices with these memory configurations, and Samsung doesn’t want to look like the odd ball out when their best-in-class offering comes up short in sheer numbers.

That’s solid thinking, but there’s just one problem: their model will cost as much as $300 to $400 more than the competition they’re trying to match. That might not matter on the back of brand strength alone for the South Korean company, but if you’re trying to match wits then price is one area that you certainly have to tick the box on.

Samsung didn’t say whether they had plans to extend the device to other markets, nor do we even know when it’s hitting China, so we’ll just have to wait and see if this turns out to be the right move for Samsung. Are you hoping for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM to reach your region? If so, are you willing to pay more than $900 for it?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
