The 6 GB phablet moves closer to the market as Samsung's DJ Koh confirms the imminent launch of such a variant on the Chinese market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note7 looks like the flagship handset of the year, but many were disappointed when a 6 GB RAM variant did not get unveiled as expected. However, it looks like one market will get such a Note7. Unfortunately, Chinese customers might be the only one to enjoy this variant, at least for a while.

In an interview with The Korea Herald, Samsung Electronics' head Koh Dong-Jin said that the iris scanning technology used by the Galaxy Note7 phablet is the safest security technology available at this time. The even more interesting part is that he also confirmed the imminent arrival of the 6 GB RAM variant of the phablet. "It is true that we are reviewing the rollout of a new tablet with 128 gigabyte built-in memory in China because Chinese companies are aggressively doing marketing with high-capacity memory," Koh said.

Unfortunately, he did not mention anything about an international launch of this handset. The regular Note7 variants will hit South Korea in blue coral, gold platinum and silver titanium, starting at almost $900 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
