Samsung Galaxy S8 6GB RAM Version Sure Heading to China & Will be Super Costly

by Jed John 0

Samsung may have first mooted the idea of a 6GB RAM on its flagship on the Galaxy Note 7 but unfortunately, that did not happen before the Note 7 went down. But rumors started filtering in, even before the Galaxy S8 was released, that the China edition of the Galaxy S8 would have a 6GB RAM version and indeed the Galaxy S8 appeared on TENAA with 6GB of RAM. That was later rumored to be on the high-end version of the Galaxy S8+ which is also said to have 128GB storage.

Words out of South Korea has now come out to further lend some level of credibility to talks of a 6GB + 128GB version of the Galaxy S8+. According to etnews, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ will have a 6GB RAM version that would be exclusive to China and would retail for a staggering KRW 1,155,000 (~$1,030, 7099 Yuan).

Furthermore, the report claims the Galaxy S8+ (6GB+128GB ) will come in Midnight Black and there will be a free Samsung DeX dock worth KRW 160,000 (~$140) with each pre-order. This is different from the free Gear VR headset with a controller and a set of games which is being offered with the International version. We must point out, though, that nothing is certain at this point until Samsung officially confirms it. But Samsung would be meaning to compete favorably with other Chinese OEMs who seem to be shifting to 6GB RAM onboard their smartphones.
