Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM is coming, but not to U.S.

Samsung has confirmed that it will release an even greater Galaxy Note 7 with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM — but you won’t be able to buy one in the U.S. initially. Samsung says it will test the waters in China first.

The new Galaxy Note 7 variant will be almost identical to the original models, and should come in the same color options. However, it will have 128GB of storage up from just 64GB, and 6GB of RAM up from just 4GB.

“It is true that we are reviewing the rollout of a new [Note 7] with 128 gigabyte built-in memory in China because Chinese companies are aggressively doing marketing with high-capacity memory,” confirmed Samsung mobile chief Koh Dong-jin.

“We will accept diverse opinions from various regions and also consider whether that move will disappoint Korean consumers,” he added.

It sounds like Samsung isn’t totally against bringing this new Galaxy Note 7 variant to other markets, then, but initially it will be exclusive to China simply because of the demand from the market.

The Galaxy Note 7 will make its official debut on August 19, and will be available in Blue Coral, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx in most markets. Be sure to check out our hands-on video if you haven’t already.
