Samsung could bring the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM in markets outside of Korea

Samsung had launched a special variant of the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage in Korea last week. This variant is priced at $1,018 and comes with a bundled DeX station, but it is currently limited to the company’s home market. However, it is being reported that the company could bring this variant to other markets.

A report from Yonhap News says that Samsung is open to launching the 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8+ in markets outside of Korea, depending on local market demand. We would like to believe that Samsung will launch it in China since there’s demand for smartphones with higher memory. Whether or not Samsung brings this variant to the US or other European markets remains to be seen.

If Samsung launches it in your country, would you buy the 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8+ even if it is $200 costlier than the regular variant? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

In answer to would I pay more to have more RAM and storage? Definitely. If I would pay $800+ I would pay $200 more to be completely satisfied.

I would happily buy a 128 GB of storage and 6 GB version. To be honest though I expect to always be disappointed, rather than pleasantly surprised, by Samsung now.

what about just bringing the s8 and s8+ with 6 GB ram in all markets. since the currently one has: : 4 GB Ram and 64 GB Storage : (Korea model) 6 GB ram and 128 GB Storage. its nothing weird to release the 6 GB ram variant global even after the release of the 4 Gb Ram variant. because it will just be like that people can chose if they want an phone with internal storage at 64 GB and 128. just like the iphone you can chose between different models of storage. just that with Samsung if you… Read more »

4GB of RAM is a deal breaker for me. If 6GB RAM variant isn’t available in Canada by the time OnePlus 5 is released ill be switch to the latter. Currently using Note 5.

I kinda get sick of people not studying products before they speak. What people don’t realize is the legal limitations that the other chipset has to be able to make it in the US markets. They stick with there own chipset and we stay with Qualcomm’s latest, which isn’t so bad if you study the benefits of both. Qualcomm’s modem paired with the processsor kicks major a#%. The gigabit service will be amazing. Go do research instead of just going with the spec sheet.

Shame on you Samsung! Every single korean version release is superior to the international one which is made in China, Vietnam or i don’t know on what ghost ship (Made by Samsung!). I know that because I own a korean Note 3, which has no comparison grades to the international version which seems like a cheap copy. You idiots! You take us as fools and for the same amount of money you sell us crap? I hope Nokia rises once again, you bastards and hopefully you go to sell your shit to the fishes.

Key word there is could… Samsung COULD release Samsung Pay in the UK, they COULD also release firmware updates on time, they COULD also make 32GB 64GB 128GB and 256GB standard options for all markets, they COULD release all models on all markets on the same date with the same configuration options as well… Go mad with what Samsung COULD do. The very sad and frustrating reality is they most likely won’t do any of those things, excluding Samsung Pay for the UK which should happen within the next 10 years. Given what Samsung is capable of, it’s extremely disappointing… Read more »

If they did a normal s8 version and yes but unfortunately I’ve already ordered a normal s8 and it’s annoying they they may release a superior version later.

Well, considering I have already pre ordered the S8+ 64GB ultra fast micro SD card. No, the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will not persuade me. Though I’ll admit a 4,000mAh battery would have me persuaded.

Same here. Moreover, as a tech geek, I will be upgrading to the Note 8 if many technological features were added. Thus, I won’t need the 6 GB RAM of the S8+ for now..
