The rumor mill is consistently spilling out leaked information on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones that are pegged to get announce in March. A Chinese leakster has revealed more details on the pricing and availability of Galaxy S8.

A Chinese leakster has revealed that the Galaxy S8’s main camera would be coming with Dual ADC which probably indicates that it would deliver better color depth.

The leakster has further stated that Samsung would be releasing only the 6 GB RAM variant in South Korea and China. It means its 4 GB variant won’t be releasing in these markets. The 6 GB RAM variant for Korean and Chinese markets would be coming in choices of 64 GB and 128 GB.

The Galaxy S8 is also expected to be available in 4 GB RAM variant with 64 GB of storage. This variant is expected to be available outside Korea and China.
