Samsung Mobile President Koh Dong-jin was asked about the rumored Galaxy Note7 with upgraded memory – 6GB RAM and 128GB storage – and he shed light on the matter.
The tricked out version is initially targeting China, where Koh says local makers are offering stiff competition with phones with high-capacity storage out of the box.
“We will accept diverse opinions from various regions and also consider whether that move will disappoint Korean consumers,” he added.
By the sound of it, Samsung is talking to carriers to gauge if there’s demand for a 6GB/128GB version of the Galaxy Note7. After all, demand for the current version is “outstanding”.
So much so, in fact, that Samsung is having issues cranking out enough units. It already postponed the launch in Malaysia, but delays are expanding.
The retail launch of the Note7 in Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg) is being pushed back by a week, from September 2 to the 9. Unfortunately, the delay isn’t to bring in the 128GB model, there just aren’t enough 64GB units to go around. North America is rolling ahead with the August 19 launch.
