Samsung is scheduled to launch the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus on March 29 and ahead of the launch event, details about the device continue to pop up online. The latest concerns the specs details of the China Edition of the device and comes from Kevin Wang, IHS research director in China.
According to Mr. Wang, the Samsung S8 China Edition would have 6GB of RAM as against the 4GB RAM which would be on the international version. Samsung usually launch the Galaxy series in the US and other western market and then a China version would then be unveiled. As is tradition, the China Edition would rock an Exynos chip, this time around the Galaxy S8 is expected with an Exynos 8895 chip while the International version would sport a Snapdragon 835 chipset.
The galaxy S8 is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S8 Plus and while it would sport a 5.7-inch display, the S8 Plus is expected with a 6.2-inch display. The device is expected with a spectacular scree-to-body ratio, an 18:9 aspect ratio and lots of spectacular features. We must remind you that this isn’t the first Samsung device coming with 6GB of RAM. The botched Galaxy Note 7 appeared on China’s TENAA with 6GB of RAM onboard but the rest as they say is history. Releasing a 6GB RAM version in China positions the S8 and S8 Plus to complete with other flagships in the domestic market, most of whom have 6GB RAM versions.
