The Galaxy Note 7 only comes in one variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage at the moment, but the company could be bringing a beefed up version to China pretty soon. A new report claims to reveal Samsung’s launch plans for a Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Samsung will allegedly unveil its tricked-out Galaxy Note 7 on August 26 before launching the device in China on September 2, according to one Weibo tipster. The extra powerful smartphone could cost 6088 yuan (roughly $914), while the original version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage allegedly starts at 5688 yuan ($854). That’s not much of a price difference, which seems odd considering the big jump in specs.
The beefed up Galaxy Note 7 was previously spotted on China’s TENAA certification site with the same specs. At this point it seems pretty likely the new variant will launch in the country, though the exact price is still up for debate.
It’s also unclear if the rest of the world will have a chance to grab the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. We wouldn’t mind paying a little more for the extra power, though early customers might get upset if Samsung quickly rolls out an even better version of the device they just bought.
