Earlier, Samsung Mobile’s chief Koh Dong-jin confirmed at launch event of Galaxy Note 7-
“It is true that we are reviewing the rollout of a new [Note 7] 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,”
