Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is unveiled in China with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage


Samsung set off what might have been the world record for drooling earlier this month when the company confirmed that a version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage is real. Unfortunately for most of the world, the manufacturer said that the device with those specs would be offered in China only. 

While Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 today in China, the only model that was introduced contained the same 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash memory that the rest of the world has inside their version of the phone. Just as it did with the Chinese version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, the Galaxy Note 7 is powered in the country by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. Sammy's 2016 high-end models pack the Exynos 8890 SoC everywhere but the U.S. and China. In those two countries, the top-of-the-line handsets carry a quad-core CPU (albeit with Qualcomm's own Kryo cores) and the Adreno 530 GPU.

With the base model priced at the equivalent of $898 USD, registrations run from now through September 1st. These non-binding registrations don't require any money to change hands as the high-end phablet heads towards its initial flash sale, which will be held on the same day. As you can imagine, demand for the Galaxy Note 7 is extremely high with over one million registrations received just two hours after the phone was unveiled.

Huh. 4gb ram. 64 gb storage. Sounds suspiciously like the 2015 lg v10 I'm holding which I bought used for $250. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Samsung can eat a bag.

You're comparing the used price of a phone that had horrible sales that was dropped in price weeks after it was released because of poor sales, to what is now one of the sales kings in Samsung's arsenal?

Yes you are correct the new Samsung has the same ram and storage as last year's lg phone which I bought used for $250.

So ram and storage are the only factors that define the price right? Interesting

What's more, your new sales king Samsung has the same ram and storage as the zte axon pro from 2015. So congratulations Samsung for catching up to 2015. At this rate you'll catch up to iPhone which is in 2014.

Yes lg v10 had relatively poor sales but it was still one of the top phones in 2015

It sounds like the V 10, except for the fact that people are buying it.

The Note 7 is also packing the unoptimized SD820 here in Canada. I'm cancelling my pre-order ''cause of this bummer.

There's a preorder for the unlocked exynos version of the note 7 on B&H photos. Even though it's still preorder, I would seriously consider it because the ones they sell have U.S warranty

Unoptimized in what way? Can you be specific?

This comparison ( https://youtu.be/233f0ewFWGk ) alone shows there's a big difference in the performance and memory management between the two chipsets. Then reports, like this ( http://goo.gl/oH0adH ), have also pointed out that the Exynos variant is more efficient and lasts even longer on battery.

Note 7=2016 phone of the year. I don't think it'll be challenged overall.

12. AmashAziz

Posts: 2934; Member since: Jun 30, 2014

It will be challenged by the iphone 7plus, lg v20, nexus 2016 (larger one), huawei mate 9, and maybe some others. What do you say now?

21. iushnt

Only iPhone 7..the other devices you mentioned Will be unknown to 80% of the world

23. AmashAziz

All of them will be known in many places, albeit not as much as the note 7. But they will give a challenge to it in terms of specs, and maybe even price. And I didn't mention they will sell as much as the note, a cold truth. So your point would have been valid only if I said they will challenge the note 7 in terms of sales and popularity.

Read and gave a proper response to that. However darkkjedii, people praise you sometimes so I expect to see a reply from you too. Hopefully next time in another discussion.

How can you say that when there are still flagships to be announced before the end of the year
