    Yep, you read the headline correctly. SamMobile reports that a China-market Note7 might have some upgrades over the standard model, with 6GB of LPDDR4 and 128GB of internal storage.

    China could get a Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage - SamMobile

    This isn't the first time a higher-specced model is available in a different country as an exclusive. The 128GB variant of the Axon 7 with 6GB of memory is exclusive to China (maybe for now), while Samsung has made LTE-A versions of the S4 and S5 for the Korean market, which featured an SD800 and SD805 respectively (the S4 LTE-A was available in Europe AFAIK, while the S5 LTE-A had a QHD display as well).

    However, it's still a bit of an odd move to release a higher-specced model in a specific country, though given the fierce competition in the Chinese market, I guess Samsung really has to move up the specs game.

    Note that all this isn't confirmed by Samsung themselves, so take this with a grain of salt.

    If they're willing to pay a whole ton of money for it. xD

    And the risk of it not being compatible with LTE bands here.

    But still... I hope they make it so at least you have a choice... Some make it sound like anything less than 6gb would make the phone slow as a turtle.

    Yes, if true, perhaps that could be an unlocked version like the ones recently released for the S7/S7 edge in US?

    The manufacturers brought the spec expectations upon themselves by doubling on memory and processor speed when Android devices were first picking up speed.

    I hear ya. I wouldn't pay anymore than I did. Probably won't use the 64gb that is on there now. But if true would be aggravating for those who already ordered and would want that one.

    And now if the rumors are true, you would be able to get that 6gb note 7

    Only difference seems to be a storage and memory bump.

    Technically, while it's nice to have, it shouldn't have much of an impact in most real-world usage conditions (for memory).

    Not all that surprising. Samsung has a history of doing this with their smartphones. Shouldn't make a huge difference in performance though.

    I'd go with 128 if available to avoid using sd card. I don't buy new phones every year so I would spend more. The 6gb would be nice too just to speed up performance. Can't make a phone fast enough for me. Should be a law against splash screens in software. Why do developers want to slow down their apps?

    Having 6GB doesn't speed up performance on its own, though.

    You'll really only see its effects when you really push that thing to its limits, such as using apps side-by-side, with a video playing as a window along with downloads in the background and navigation.

    No this will never come to anywhere Note 7 is already announced.. Unlocked version in US is the same as carrier version without the carrier bloat and sim unlocked out of the box.

    I hope this isn't true because that means China would get the version most of us tech nerds wanted in the first place! I don't care about the RAM so much but I would love to have the higher internal memory along with the memory card slot.

    Would a phone from China work in American on T-Mobile bands or would it be locked out like phones sold in Japan?

    Doesn't look any more dependable than rumors that disappointed us about the US version. I'm already jealous they get Exynos processor though.

    Well it was stated that

    "According to regulatory documents filed with the Chinese Industry and Information Technology Ministry, the Samsung SM-N9300 might be the device in question. In addition to the 6GB of RAM, this Galaxy Note 7 flavor might sport 128GB of built-in storage, or double the amount available on regular versions

    As SamMobile points out, Samsung has done this sort of thing before. Last year’s Galaxy Note 5 shipped with 128GB of storage out of the box in China."

    This looks like China would at least get the higher internal memory version but if they are trying to go against the OnePlus3 and the few other 6GB phones sold in China then I guess it's possible...

    I've always enjoyed internal memory compared to an SD card but I love having both options in one device. I've used iPhones for years and I love having less issues with internal memory compared to SD cards plus I can store everything on my phone making it faster to access the data. Plus for the price of flagship phones I would want 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory if that option is available.

    You're right its not a deal breaker and I will still love my Onyx Black Note 7 when I get it (next week I hope) but it would suck for me at least to know a higher end version was released and I couldn't get it even when I have to the money...

    Still going to be an amazing phone either way! I played with one at Best Buy and I was shocked at how fast it worked even with the heavy store demo software loaded up.

    Since I prefer not to use sd card except for pics and media (not secure) it would be great for me.

    I'm also insulted USA gets inferior version.

    I agree to that that's my biggest gripe with this whole situation is why would they go with the Snapdragon 820 and said of the exynos chip
