It seems like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are coming to China on May 25. This information comes from ‘industry sources’, at least according to The Investor, so it seems like Chinese consumers won’t have to wait for long in order to get their hands on Samsung’s all new flagships. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus arrived in a number of markets last month, China was forced to wait for the two phones to arrive to the country, and even though that hasn’t happened just yet, it seems like it will next week.
Samsung still needs to officially confirm this info, that confirmation is expected to follow in the coming days. We do not know how much will the two phones cost in China, though, but they will certainly be more expensive than in the US, that’s for sure. Chances are that Samsung plans to launch the 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8 Plus in China, along with regular models, at least according to reports. This 6GB RAM model of the Galaxy S8 Plus has been available in South Korea for quite some time now, and even though Samsung had some supply issues (extremely high demand in Korea) when it comes to that phone, those seems to be sorted now. In addition to reporting that the two phones will arrive in China soon, the source also says that Samsung’s Bixby AI (Artificial Intelligence) assistant will start offering Chinese language support next month.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are identical in terms of the design, and most of their specs are identical as well. The only difference between these two phones is their size, the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch display, while the ‘Plus’ model comes with a 6.2-inch panel. In addition to that, the Galaxy S8 Plus’ battery is somewhat larger than the one used in the Galaxy S8. Both devices are made out of metal and glass, and they both sport really thin bezels, and their displays are curved on the sides. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus pack in 4GB of RAM, along with 64GB of expandable internal storage, and they’ll both be fueled by the Exynos 8895 64-bit octa-core processor in China.
