Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is rumored to be heading to China. It is believed that the new smartphone will feature 6GB of RAM, as opposed to the priorly announced 4GB of RAM. It’s not the first time that Samsung leaves some of its customers disappointed by providing other markets with better specs.
The phablet was officially announced by the Korean consumer electronics company on August 3rd. Many sources were quick to suggest that it the new Galaxy Note 7 will surely ship with 6GB of RAM. However, to everyone’s disappointment, the smartphone only runs on 4GB of RAM. One might say it is good enough, but as it was recently discovered that Chinese customers will enjoy a 6GB model, questions are being raised.
Rumor has it that Samsung is now working on a 6GB of RAM version of the Note 7, but it’ not for everyone. There are hints that the more powerful phablet is heading only to China. It may just be that the demand for such specs has increased for the said market. Chinese phone maker OnePlus has just announced the new OnePlus 3 that also enjoys 6GB of RAM. Reports also suggest that OnePlus 3 mini will also include 6GB. Furthermore, ZTE Nubia Z11 and Asus ZenFone 3 all pack 6GB of RAM. Competition is fierce.
Although 4GB of RAM are just enough to speed up any smartphone, the Chinese market trend is to receive higher capacity RAM on flagships such as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 or any other giant manufacturers. However, Samsung may lose some of its customers that are not living in China.
The Korean manufacturer has not issued any statement on the matter, and it is not clear if the 6GB of RAM model will happen at all.
In other news, the new Galaxy Note7 will be launched with an iris scanner, a technology that has been in the works for a while now. It will provide a unique way through which users can authenticate, and it will surely become a norm for other manufacturers as well. The technology is not an affordable one, yet Samsung goes about providing its mid-range smartphones with the iris scanner. According to the multinational company, it is the most secure biometric security system so far.
