It was rumored even before Samsung had officially announced the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ that there will be at least one variant of the new flagship which will feature 128GB of onboard storage as well as 6GB of RAM. Samsung confirmed last week that it was going to release a variant of the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage in South Korea only. However, the possibility exists that Samsung might bring it to markets outside Korea as well.
The 128GB Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM comes bundled with Samsung’s DeX station dock which can be used to get a PC-like interface on an external monitor from the new Samsung flagship.
It’s quite a bit more expensive than other variants, it has been priced at $1,018, and is only being sold exclusively in Samsung’s home market of South Korea.
A news report out of the country suggests that Samsung is open to the possibility of launching this Galaxy S8+ model in markets outside South Korea as well.
It’s very likely that China will be the next destination for this model as there’s significant demand there for handsets that boast high numbers on their spec sheets.
Samsung hasn’t said anything about bringing this model to the United States or Europe so we’ll have to wait and see if this particular Galaxy S8+ model makes it to the West at all.
