Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could offer 6GB RAM

Lots of people had put up their hopes high that the Galaxy Note 7 will feature a 6GB RAM, but that didn’t happen during the Galaxy Note 7 launch event. During the unveiling of the latest handset, Samsung officially announced that the Galaxy Note 7 will be shipped with 4GB RAM. The rumor about the 6GB ram handset has long been circulating the internet and even after the official announcement, instead of getting the hopes down, another report has revived more assumptions.

As sighted on a benchmark result from Geekbench which in a way collaborates a listing at the Chinese Industry and Information Technology Ministry indicates a Galaxy Note 7 model with 6GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. This suggests that there could be an additional model that will be shipped in China. This is not quite surprising, if you will recall, the company also offered a different version of the Note 5 equipped with 128GB internal storage in South Korea last year.

Geekbench has listed the device as the Samsung SM-N9300 showing a single core performance of 2312 and a multi-core performance of 5474. The benchmark was performed on Android 6.0.1 with the memory value of 5381MB.

Aside from the slight difference in memory configurations, there were no reports about the reasons on why Samsung would be shipping additional RAM and storage to China. Some reports suggest that the extra memory will be a critical part for Samsung to gain more consumers in China. This could possibly be a way for the company to keep up with the Chinese market competitors. Smartphone manufacturers from China, such as the OnePlus now releases their latest handset OnePlus 3 that features 6GB RAM.

We still have to wait for Samsung’s official announcement in order to confirm these reports.
