SEOUL, Aug. 27 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. of South Korea has started receiving pre-orders for its new Galaxy Note phablet from Chinese customers, company officials said Saturday.

The Galaxy Note 7 is scheduled to go on sale on Sept. 1, with a price tag of 5,988 yuan, or one million won (US$897).

It features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash memory storage, the same as those sold in other markets such as South Korea, the United States and Europe.

The fresh phablet has attracted keen global attention with an iris recognition feature and upgraded S Pen that enables users to better write and draw on the screen.

"More sophisticated artistic expression has become possible as the size of the S Pen's tip is smaller," a Samsung official said. "We will try to win the hearts and minds of Chinese people with an advanced marketing strategy, not with competition on specs."

With the latest Galaxy phablet, Samsung aims to regain its prowess in the high-end smartphone market in China.
Samsung ranked top in China's smartphone world until the second quarter of 2014 but it now stands at the 5th place after Apple and Chinese rivals.
