During the official launch event in New York, Samsung said that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will both arrive with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.
While most markets will be getting the versions mentioned above, Samsung has a special variant of the Galaxy S8+ which it plans to sell only in China. And Samsung official Chinese website already listed this particular Galaxy S8+ model, which arrives with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
While Samsung doesn’t list a price for the device, Korean news outlet ETNews claims the phone will be sold for approximately $1,020 in the country. Samsung apparently made the decision of selling a 6GB of RAM variant in the country in order to better compete with Chinese OEMs which routinely offer extremely well-specced handsets. For example, products like the Vivo Xplay5 Elite or the ZTE Nubia Z11 come packing 6GB of RAM. Unfortunately for Samsung, these products also sell for a lot more attractive price-tags.
To sweeten the deal, Samsung is also throwing in a free DeX station accessory (worth $150) with the purchase of this particular model of the Galaxy S8+.
It’s unclear whether Samsung will end up selling the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage on other markets. If the product proves to be popular in the country, Samsung might consider expanding its availability.
