The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for China has just been launched and it comes with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage space. This may come as a surprise for most of you out there and especially for the China client base as Samsung stated a little while ago that the Note 7 version that it was supposed to release in China was designed with different specs. To be more precise, Samsung claimed that it will exclusively sell a 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage space Note 7 in China.
So you can image that some of those who attended the launch which took place yesterday were shocked when Samsung revealed a 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage space Note 7 instead of the highly anticipated 6 GB of RAM one. The former is not even a special version of the device because it has been released almost everywhere in the world.
However, in terms of the chipset that is powering the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, it appears that the US version and the China version have the same Snapdragon 820 chipset which can also be found in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. This particular chipset also features a quad-core CPU and an Adreno 530 GPU. The other versions of Samsung Note 7 that were released in other countries are powered by an Exynos 8890 SoC.
The China version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is priced at $898 and can be pre-ordered until the 1st of September. The latest statistics show that the device is in very high demand in the region and that there were approximately one million registrations for pre-order within the first two hours after the phone was launched.
This also suggests that the potential users care very little about the anticipated specs that never came to be and more about getting the actual device. But who knows, maybe in time, Samsung will release that 6GB of RAM version of the Note 7 in China.
