Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM could still be made available in China
When the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was unveiled in China last week, there was a little surprise. Samsung had earlier confirmed that it was going to offer in China a version of the phablet with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage. But the Galaxy Note 7 introduced in China had the same 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage found elsewhere.

But a version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native memory still could be released. An image from a Galaxy Note 7 box shows that containers were printed for a variant of the high-end phablet with 6GB of RAM. The picture was posted by a tipster who has posted leaked images before on his Weibo page. This source says that Samsung would charge the equivalent of $1048 USD for the unit.

Registrations for the phone have been very strong as the first flash sale is set for September 1st. Samsung might have decided that it doesn't need to offer the higher spec'd model at this moment. Considering that the boxes are apparently printed, we still might see a version of the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage down the road.

The SD 820 can only handle 4gb of ram, it's a limitation in its specifications.

Boooooooo...why not in other regions. At any rate I expect that next years Note will have 6 gigs of ram and a dual camera. This years Note should have had that, but they are trying to milk the market. At any rate if it does I will sell this and upgrade next year.... I will not pay extra for ram only. If iPhone has a dual camera shame on you Samsung, with just making incremental upgrades instead of bringing it with the Note 7 this year, and launching 6 gigs in China.

I miss the days Samsung could pull it off especially with the note series... huge tech advances and in software features... note 4 was the last huge Increment Sammy made.. since note series have become the kids of S Series.. whereas notes were the real deal.... poor Sammy

Wished they made all Exynos models. Don't won't the international version since there is no warranty. Little concern about the Gorilla Glass scratch problem too. Watch some YouTube videos and guy cracked his phone with a small drop. May still pick up one beginning of year and put a case on it to replace aging Note 3.

There is up to 2 year warranty for the international version if you get it from B&H Photos:

I used to love Samsung. It's just one slap in the face after another with them now. I can't imagine ever going back.

i hope the morons at Samsung are happy becoming apple 2014 2.0 .... from the company that gave people what they want , to a company that is f**ked up with profits .... 3 year ago when apple made small improvements the whole tech community bashed them and now samsung literally recycles a H1 2016 phone .. adds a pen and throws on a 900$ price tag -_-

.... Couldn't agree more! With companies like oneplus releasing phones with insane specs for less than half the cost it's really making people think. Especially when Samsung insists on TouchWiz, 4GB of RAM and almost nothing new. Samsung is becoming Samesong

The iphone 6s plus 64gb is $860. That iphone isn't ip68 rated, it's not qhd omled, it doesn't have a longer battery life or fast charging, or wireless charging, can't support VR. It can't even touch it on software features, it camera isn't better. So whats your point?

You don't know what your talking about because the Samsung phone are great this year. In fact the s7, s7 edge and note 7 are the top 3 best overall phones this year. Samsung is increasing market share. BTW the iPhone 6s plus 64gb is the same price as the note 7 and it doesn't even come with a 256gb sd card free, in fact it don't support it, lol.

Who cares just waiting for the note 8.... The note 7 is just a glorified GS7 with a with a pen slot....! Nothing to see here.... Sory . not worth upgrading from my note 4, not yet anyway looks like it'll be getting nougat update.... here's hoping.

But when the Note 8 comes out, it'll still be a "glorified" S8 from your POV regardless of the number of differentiating factors...
