There was definitely an air of disappointment when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 made its official debut since the phone only had 4 GB of RAM carried over from the previous generation.
This was despite numerous rumors and leaks suggesting that it was almost certain that the phone would have 6 GB of RAM. This would have made the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on par with the likes of the OnePlus 3. Smartphones have started going beyond the 4 GB of RAM and it was especially disappointing to see this feature omitted on the Galaxy Note series, which has been a pioneer in terms of bringing new technologies to the industry.
Those disappointments have been wiped out after new leaks of a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM have cropped up. Chinese telecom regulator TENAA has confirmed that Samsung to have a version of the Galaxy Note 7 with 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM. Both these options are a significant bump over the current specifications of 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM. Users are unlikely to be concerned too much about the on-board storage since the device does come with expandable memory option. However, the presence of an additional 2 GB of RAM makes a lot of difference as seen in the OnePlus 3 – only after its recent update.
The OnePlus 3 is capable of handling a number of tasks without closing them due to the lack of memory. The phone is capable of running even high-end games in the background without having to relaunch the app every then and now. It is comforting to know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will also get this feature, although the RAM usage by the TouchWiz user interface is likely to compromise on the space available for applications. Other aspects of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM, which is yet to be made official, are likely to remain similar to the standard variant.
This would mean a 5.7 inch display with an Edge screen. The phone is fully waterproof without an ugly ports and it can even stay waterproofed even with the S Pen out of its slot. Furthermore, the S Pen can even be used to write underwater. The phone is powered by a snapdragon 820 processor and it has a 3500 mAh battery on-board.
