Rumor: Galaxy S8 (Plus) With 6GB Of RAM Heading To China


Before Samsung introduced the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, a rumor surfaced saying that the Chinese variant of these two devices will ship with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage, and now yet another such rumor surfaced. This time around the information comes from Weibo (China's social network), and it was posted by a well-known Chinese tipster. Now, some of you might recall that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus got certified in China shortly before Samsung introduced them yesterday, and TENAA (China's equivalent to the FCC), more or less confirmed that a 6GB RAM Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus variant is on the way, so this rumor is probably quite accurate.

As you probably already know, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus yesterday in New York, and both of those phones ship with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. You can expand the Galaxy S8's and Galaxy S8 Plus' storage via a microSD card, though, up to 256GB. Having that in mind, it seems like Samsung plans to introduce a more powerful variant of the device in China, though a regular model will probably become available as well. We still do not know when will Samsung introduce the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in China, but chances are it will happen really soon. The two devices will probably be more expensive than they are in the US, and the 6GB RAM variant will, of course, be the most expensive variant of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, presuming Samsung plans to introduce it, of course.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are made out of metal and glass, both devices sport identical displays in terms of display technology and resolution, but the Galaxy S8 Plus' panel is larger at 6.2 inches, compared to the 5.8-inch display on the Galaxy S8. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on both devices, and Samsung opted to release two different SoC variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Depending on where you live, you'll get either the Exynos 8895-powered Galaxy S8 unit, or the Snapdragon 835-powered one.
