Another leak suggests South Korea will get a 256GB Galaxy Note 8 variant

Home / News / Another leak suggests South Korea will get a 256GB Galaxy Note 8 variant

We’ve heard before that Samsung could launch a 256GB storage variant of the Galaxy Note 8 dubbed Galaxy Note 8 Emporer Edition. While there’s no telling if Samsung will go with such a title, it does look like the Note 8 will indeed be offered with 256GB of inbuilt storage. Roland Quandt has tweeted an image of what looks like a listing for the Note 8’s Korean models, and most of them have “256GB” in the model number.

Samsung doesn’t usually name model numbers for different storage options like this, but the source of this information has been known to be accurate in the past. Samsung would do well to release a version with 256GB storage, given the Note lineup is aimed at the power users and professionals, who could do with as much storage out of the box as possible. Not to mention it is also a necessary step to counter the iPhone. The iPhone 7 was launched with 256GB of storage and it’s highly likely the same will be the case for the iPhone 8.

As is usually the case with Samsung, such an off-kilter model will probably be limited to a few markets, with availability expanding at a later stage as and when the company deems fit. A 256GB Galaxy Note 8 model certainly looks to be on the cards, though. Even if availability is limited, we can at least look forward to Samsung making the 128GB model more widely available. You know, unless the 128GB model is replaced by the 256GB version, in which case it could be back to square one for consumers in most markets.

Other pattern by Samsung, they will never be like Apple for releasing all sizes and colours worldwide from day 1, the lack of standardisation is really annoying, let the customers choose, not you choose for us!

Why/How does someone use 256GB of storage on a phone? If you need that much media on the go, you need to invest your time in yourself and start a business or something productive.

128gb is enough as long as we have the SD card remaining.

Key factor would be more ram. 8gb. They cheaper out on the s8 and presumably they will give 6gb to n9 and s9

Saving 8gb for s10

If SamSuck releases 256gb version in the U.S., then I will return back as a customer, otherwise Apple 6S plus 128 gb will be upgraded to the IPhone 8 256gb version. I still use my Galaxy Note Edge via sim swapping all the time.

Samsung is trying to compete with Apple and they’re doing an utterly shit job because Apple is selling 512GB iPad Pros now which I imagine will carry over to its iPhones pretty soon. And whilst an extremely small percentage of customers can get either a 128GB or 256GB version of certain devices, Apple sells all of its models to everyone.

Most people who buy apple products are invested in their ecosystem, and all their new customers are android users who have always wanted one but cannot afford apples brand. Apple is brand first and foremost now, they sell. that is all they do now. Apple has brought nothing new to the mobile industry for years, and so are very different to Samsung.

That makes no sense though. Samsung is a business as well, so in order to make money it needs to sell its products. Apple is almost a 1 trillion dollar company as a result of it just selling, so clearly it is doing something right. What is the point of making stuff if you don’t sell it? That wouldn’t work anywhere else would it? “So guys I am here today to show you all THE cure for all types of cancer.” “Clap clap, how much will it cost?” “Oh we’re not going to sell it to everyone. See, we’re different… Read more »
