When Samsung made the Galaxy S8 and S8+ official, they revealed the specs of the phone and according to the specs, the handset comes with 4GB of RAM. Now 4GB is by no means considered little, but considering that there are phones out there with 6GB, we’re sure some were hoping that Samsung would have included 6GB.
Now last we heard Samsung is planning such a model for the Chinese market and according to a report out of Korea (via GSMArena), it seems that this particular model won’t come cheap. The report claims that the handset could cost 1,155,000 KRW which when converted is a little over $1,000, or $1,030 to be exact.
As it stands the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are priced at $750 and $850 respectively, so to have it jump in price by almost $200 just for 2GB of RAM does seem a tad excessive. It also seems that this particular model will be exclusive to China for now, which isn’t surprising given that the 6GB phones we’ve seen have typically come from Chinese OEMs, so it looks like Samsung could be hoping to woo more China customers with the 6GB model.
Samsung has yet to make the handset official, but releasing different models for different regions isn’t unheard of so we wouldn’t be surprised if this were true, although it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now.
