When Samsung formally announced the Galaxy Note7 earlier this week, they didn’t really hit us with any surprises. The new phablet is pretty much exactly like we expected it, blending the Note5 and S7 edge together into one beautiful beast. It may have disappointed a few people to see only 4GB of RAM, but it looks like there might be another version of the Note7 with 6GB of RAM instead.

This isn’t quite as unnecessarily awesome as the 8GB of RAM previously rumored, but it is a bump in the right direction. That’s the good news. The bad news, at least for most of us, is that it looks like the Galaxy Note7 with 6GB of RAM is destined only for the China market. At least for now.

The news comes by way of a TENAA listing, which serves a similar function in China as the FCC does in the United States. According to this listing, Samsung wants to sell a version of its Galaxy Note7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage there. To further support this rumor, another screenshot from Geekbench shows a “Samsung SM-N9300” earning single-core and multi-core scores of 2320 and 5454, respectively. Oh and that device has 5381 MB of memory, which is clearly more than the 4GB the rest of us are getting.

There's a Galaxy Note7 with 6GB of RAM After All

At this point, it’s clearly questionable whether anyone actually needs a smartphone with 6GB of RAM, but more is always better, right? If Samsung were to ship this higher-spec’d model over to our shores, would you be interested in paying the premium for the supposed bump in performance?
