Samsung officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage only for China

Samsung officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage only for China

There is absolutely no doubt in the fact that the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note7 is by far the best looking Android smartphone of 2016. Even though the phone offers some really amazing features including an Iris scanner, some people were left disappointed at the fact that the device did not come with 6GB RAM as it was being anticipated since quite some time. Well, we can officially confirm today that Samsung are indeed going to launch a 6GB variant of their flagship device that will come with 128GB of on-board storage. Unfortunately, the device would only be available in China as the company wants to enter into competition with some of the other Chinese brands that are offering devices with similar hardware. This has upset local consumers because the Galaxy Note7 is launched with 64GB built-in memory and 4GB RAM in the global markets including South Korea. Here’s what Mr. Koh Dong-jin, the head of the tech giant’s mobile business had to say at a launch event for the Galaxy Note 7 in Seoul; “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,”  “We will accept diverse opinions from various regions and also consider whether that move will disappoint Korean consumers,” he added. Pricing and availability is yet to be ascertained for the upgraded variant but considering the $850 price tag on the 64GB version, we do expect this one to be somewhere close to the $1000 mark. Will keep you guys posted on any further...

For this, Google has come up with a good solution that lets you reduce the amount of data Chrome uses on your Android mobile device, computer, or Chromebook by using Data Saver. Please note that Data Saver isn’t available for iPhones or iPads. How Data Saver works When you use Data Saver, most of your web traffic goes through Google servers before being downloaded to your device.

With Data Saver turned on: Some websites might not be able to accurately determine your location. Some images might look a little fuzzy. Internal websites, such as your company’s internal sites, might not load. Sites that your mobile carrier uses to authenticate and bill you might not work. For example, you might have trouble logging in to your mobile phone provider’s website. Local settings will be ignored if you manually modified your /etc/hosts file. Turn on Data Saver Android device Open the Chrome app . Tap More Settings. Under “Advanced,” tap Data Saver. Slide the switch ON. You can switch this off at any time. Computers and Chromebooks You can use the Data Saver extension if you’re running Chrome version 48 or higher. Turn on Data Saver: Install the Data Saver extension from Chrome Web Store.
