Samsung appears to be trialling more than one version of its forthcoming Galaxy Note 7, with plans seeminly afoot for a so–called ‘Lite’ version.

Leaked data from so-called benchmark tests, which manufacturers use to measure their handsets' performance, show off plans for a device with 4GB of RAM and a 64–bit quad–core processor.

This compares with a snappier version seen in previous tests, using 6GB of RAM.

This tidbit has fuelled rumours that Samsung could offer a ‘lite’ edition of its Galaxy Note 7, aimed at enticing customers who don’t want cutting-edge specs but are still after a phone which features a large 5.7–inch display and the latest curved screen tech.

Last week, rumours emerged that Samsung was also set to launch the Galaxy Note 7 with the latest Nougat version of Google's smartphone operating system.

That would make it the first phone to use Google’s latest version of its operating system, which offers improved battery life and better security for preventing bugs from changing passwords.

Samsung is set to reveal the Galaxy Note 7 at a special event on August 2nd.
