Dual SIM Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage gets certified in China

Dual SIM Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage gets certified in China
Make of this what you will, but a certification approval on the Chinese equivalent of the FCC has changed its listing of a Galaxy Note 7 version to reflect a model with no less than 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

Granted, this is a dual SIM version that has been approved for hooking up to carrier networks there, so it will have a hybrid SIM/microSD tray, and it makes sense to bump the base storage, given that you won't be able to put a memory card there if you want to use two SIM cards at once. What's with the 6 GB of RAM, though, and why is that needed, except for bragging rights, remains somewhat of a mystery. Meanwhile, we now also have a Samsung SM-N9300 model (or, Note 7) appear on Geekbench with 6 GB RAM, which adds fuel the speculation that Samsung might release a model with this whopping RAM amount. 

While the six gigs rumor didn't materialize for the global version, Samsung might have decided to give users in the largest smartphone market a little something more to lure them away from local brands like OnePlus, which are selling 6 GB RAM phones for half the Note 7 price. Also, Samsung is no stranger to outing phone versions and whole new lines that are exclusively made for China now, like the On5/On7, or the C-series. We'll see how this 6 GB/128 GB Note 7 certification pans out in the next few weeks, but we'd wager to guess there will be a golden variation if it materializes.

I will take 128MB (not a typo) of flash storage and dual removable batteries (one in the phone and other in a charging cradle ready to be swapped).

FYI, the On5 and On7 are not exclusive to China.. The On series phones are sold in india exclusively online through amazon.

Oops!!! Now samsung is talking.. Btw, if the iphone7 doesn't wow me (which I'm thinking it wouldn't) I might just get the black Note7 along with my Moto Z...

You aren't gonna use that video/photo captured with tht expensive Samsung for something peculiar or more important. So just get any phone with decent camera and reasonable price. Desist from being fooled always.

Desist from being fooled always. Same message to iPhone buyers as well. They are even the worse customers on earth who are being fooled by that apple company. Well; it's up to everybody to use his money the way he likes; but the truth is that; you are being Fooled

See post 16. and add the following to the list: - Best display available on a Smartphone - USB 3.1 Type C port ( http://goo.gl/SFYjyC ) - etc.

Does the OnePlus 3 come with any of the following: - An active digitizer pen to make serious use of its bigger screen - Best Smartphone camera photo/video/audio recording available on the market according to multiple comparisons and reviews ( https://goo.gl/OcCT4p | https://goo.gl/lX2wu0 ) - Great Battery life ( https://goo.gl/JKTUHW ) - A mobile payment service that works almost anywhere - Hundreds of $s worth of gifts just for using it like you already do ( http://goo.gl/0FWENl | http://goo.gl/2hoRMe | http://goo.gl/0TxbVv ) - Waterproof chassis - Expandable storage - Fast and secure Iris biometric authentication for various situations, including when using the device with gloves on - Versatile software that's miles beyond the pitifully limited stock Android - Gorilla glas 5 and 80%+ screen to body design - etc. You get what you pay for in this case. Only fool here is you turning a blind eye to everything it offers and just looking at the price tag.

Because they have $750 to buy a better phone? Maybe they don't like the One Plus 3? Do they have to buy the phone YOU like. How about YOU buy it and let them buy whatever!

Now the question is if it will get updates in the same timeframe like the globally release model.

one of the worst thing of samsung phones is the hybrid slot.....preventing it from becoming a true dual sim phone !! & on phones like a series & note series which have such huge body.....is it really hard to include all three in one phone ? (2 sim & a sd card)

20. MrElectrifyer

Curious, what exactly do you gain out of dual-SIM that isn't possible with software service like YouMail that literally adds a second phone number to your current phone?

22. LeonVonKaiser

1) The two sims can be from different carriers. You're essentially carrying two phones in the body of one phone. Simple scenario: You have poor network coverage with one sim but good with the other, you choose which network to use for 3G/4G/LTE, etc 2) Related to the first one, you don't need to bring two phones. I'm being a bit captain obvious here but dual sim capability simply means you simply use one phone if you normally rely on two.

23. MrElectrifyer

Yeah, that carrier coverage is a clear advantage...useful if 1 carrier isn't suitable for your area. However, the second one, that's already doable via apps like YouMail.

It largely depends on the reason why one will get two sims. If they use two sims primarily due to the need of having two numbers with different carriers, then their reason falls under reason number 2 I mentioned, reason 1 just becomes a subsequent advantage. If one uses two sims primarily due to reason number 1, then I would think they don't necessarily care about having two numbers, it just that it requires two sims to enjoy two networks. tl;dr need two different network coverages = dual sim need more than one number = dual sim or one sim + YouMail/alternative apps
