[Update: 6GB of RAM] Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition to come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage

Home / News / [Update: 6GB of RAM] Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition to come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage

Samsung is testing a variant of the Galaxy Note 8 that will ship with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, according to renowned Weibo tipster Ice Universe. The handset, which has been dubbed the Emperor Edition, is expected to launch in South Korea alongside the base model that’ll come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, before inevitably making its way to China.

In addition, Ice Universe revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 will hit the shelves in three colors, including Midnight Black and Orchid Grey. Rival tipster Roland Quant believes that the third variant will be a new Deep Blue hue that’s different to the Coral Blue shade that debuted on the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, though we’re still yet to see any evidence to support his claim.

Recent rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU and a 3,300mAh battery. It should also ship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat (no, not Android O) skinned with the latest version of Samsung’s Experience — formerly known as TouchWiz — user interface and support Daydream out of the box.

Digital news outlet OSEN reported last month that the firm is working on another model that’ll have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Unlike the Emperor Edition, this variant is set to launch in Europe, North America and South America, where it will carry a price tag of more than $1,100. If that turns out to be true, the Galaxy Note 8 will be the most expensive smartphone Samsung’s released to date.

Update: Ice Universe has altered his original prediction. The Emperor Edition will reportedly ship with 6GB of RAM, not 8GB. We’ve added the new information to the original article.

If here in Europe I cannot buy the best version of the note8, then my note4 was the last Samsung phone I bought for myself. I hate to be treated by Samsung as a second class customer!!! I didn’t the note 5 because it was too inspired by iphone (fixed battery and no memory slot) , note7 I couldn’t even buy, but even if I could have, I wouldn’t as I could not get their ‘real’ flagship. Other makes don’t do this fricking fuss, although I am not an iOS fan, I really appreciate that I can buy the best… Read more »

If they don’t put a stop to the price rise soon i’d better opt for another company coz they are increasing the price like the are just crazy for profits and money and soon galaxy is gonna be unaffordable if this is the case

I don’t care what naming scheme you have samsung! Just release all the storage and colours globally! Stop the regional specific stuff.

So what it should be there originally for the price tag of $1000 will be added as an extra option for even higher price tag. Excellent

I’d prefer a Note 8 Active with rugged back and a massive battery of at least 4500 mAh not exclusive to AT&T and released worldwide

I’d prefer magic horse that can fly. I wonder which one of us will realize his preference first.

I believe that samsung note 8 will not have 8 gb of ram because otherwise it can destroy every smartphone for the next three years

Actually it won’t, the Samsung UI and Bloatware will make it run as slow as any other mid range phone 🙂

Will there be a Ruler of the Universe edition with 10gb of ram? That’s the one I want. Lol. Seriously though, what a waste, 6gb is more than enough. In reality 4gb is plenty. SO it’s only 6gb and extra storage… 🙂

Just look at the 6 gb version of the s8 plus and its still not enough to match the one plus 3t and 5. Which is just sad.

Easy question do you really use your phone with 3 or 4 games opened simultaneously ?

Why can’t Europe get it too ? Why China and Korea have to have the best possible and the rest of their clients should just settle . Why is there a standart on those markets and not here ? What don’t they make a ton of money from Europe, USA and other countries?

That’s the problem. Since those countries are already buying the stuff, what motivation do Samsung have to offer anything extra?
