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.
