Exclusive Note 7 with 6 GB RAM may be released for preorder in China on August 26

That stuff of legends, the unicorn, the Note 7 model with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage recently got certified by the Chinese equivalent of the FCC. The version was then listed as a dual SIM Note 7, hence the doubling of flash memory compared to the global Note 7 units - after all, if you use the hybrid slot tray to put two SIM at once, you will be deprived of the ability to expand the internal storage with a microSD memory card.

Then, from the underbelly of the Chinese blogosphere, came another confirmation that such a beast may indeed exist, complete with pricing. According to carrier promotional staff there, the 6GB RAM/128 GB Galaxy Note 7 will cost 6088 yuan in China, while the base 4 GB/64 GB model will run for 5688 yuan, though it doesn't become clear if that one will be dual SIM. That's $912 and $853, respectively, and such a small difference smelled pretty fishy to us, given the bump in memory you get, so take these prices with a grain of salt.

Afterwards, Samsung itself sort of confirmed the existence of a China-exclusive Note 7 model with 6 GB RAM, citing local brands that are "aggressively doing marketing with high-capacity memory." Well, the source that tipped its price before that, also mentioned an August 26 preorder start, and September 2 release date.

Lo and behold, Samsung China just announced itself August 26 as the preorder date, so that might indeed be the day when a Note 7 with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage would officially strut for the cameras. We'll keep an eye on the developments, and report on the actual price tag of such a beast, having in mind our poll where a lot of the respondents expressed interest in importing it, as you can see below.

Would you import the 6 GB RAM Note 7 if it launches as China-exclusive?

Depends on the price
