Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been officially released around the world and it has become the most premium phablet or stylus-equipped smartphone on the market.
Before hitting your nearby store or ordering one online, you should be aware that the Note 7 comes in some variants with different specs, just like what happened with the Galaxy S7 models. The versions released in the U.S. are SM-N930V, SM-N930A, SM-N930P, SM-N930T, SM-N930R4, etc. while the U.K. version is SM-N930F.
Some models will come with the Snapdragon 820 (2x Kryo @ 2.15GHz, 2x Kryo @ 1.6GHz, Adreno 530 GPU) while some will be equipped with the Exynos 8890 SoC (4x Exynos M1 @ 2.3GHz, 4x Cortex A53 @ 1.6GHz, Mali T880MP12 GPU). The 2 processors deliver a very comparable system performance but the Snapdragon 820 is preferred because of the better GPU.
Besides, the Chinese version SM-N9300 could come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
