With the Samsung Galaxy S8, the company launched the phone which packed 4GB of RAM, although it was later revealed that there would be a 6GB variant headed for China. Now 4GB of RAM is pretty decent and is more than enough to get most tasks done, but we guess having more isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

That’s something that Samsung could be considering for the Galaxy Note 8. According to the rumors, it seems that Samsung could be working on more RAM variants for the Note 8, and that the company could launch the phone in either a 6GB RAM version of an 8GB RAM version, although we’re not sure if these variants will be open to all regions, because like we said the 6GB RAM Galaxy S8 version appeared to be limited to China.

There are some who might argue that 8GB of RAM is overkill, especially when you consider the fact that there are plenty of phones out there that are running on 4-6GB of RAM or even less, like Apple’s iPhone, and are performing just fine. However perhaps Samsung has bigger plans for the Note 8 that might require the additional RAM, or perhaps it’s just good for marketing purposes.

Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Is 8GB of RAM sort of unnecessary?
