There were rumors long before the Galaxy S8 was made official that Samsung was going to at least offer one model of the new flagship in select markets that will feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Everyone else will have to make do with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Samsung didn’t say anything about such a model during its presentation but the company’s website for South Korea has confirmed the existence of the 6GB model. It’s only going to be offered with the Galaxy S8+.
It was expected that Samsung would offer this model as the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage was spotted on Chinese certification agency TENAA’s website not too long ago.
Nothing else has changed. All of the specifications are the same as they would be should you decide to buy a Galaxy S8. It’s just the RAM and the storage that have been bumped up.
Samsung South Korea’s website clearly mentions that this model will be available and that those who pre-order it will receive a DeX station bundled with their smartphone.
The website doesn’t confirm how much the 6GB Galaxy S8+ is going to cost when it’s released, reports suggest that it might be north of $1,000. It may be limited to just South Korea and China.
