Cheaper Galaxy Note 8 with 4GB RAM might be launched in China


Last updated: August 24th, 2017 at 10:02 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 8 is the first smartphone from Samsung to ship with 6GB of RAM globally. Samsung has previously released variants of its flagships with 6GB of RAM. However, they have largely been limited to select markets.

The Galaxy Note 8 is an expensive smartphone. It costs north of $900 in the United States and over 1,000 euro in several European markets. If a new leak is to be believed, Samsung might launch a cheaper Galaxy Note 8 with 4GB of RAM.

The leak comes from TENAA, a certification agency in China. The China-specific variants of the Galaxy Note 8 bearing model numbers SM-N9508 and SM-N9500 have been listed. It’s expected that Samsung might launch the 4GB variant alongside the standard 6GB variant.

The cost-cutting appears to be limited to the RAM only as all other specifications will remain the same. The standard variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage is expected to cost ¥6,288 or $945.

The 4GB RAM with 64GB variant is expected to cost around $100 less than the standard edition. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant will be offered as well for ¥7,088 or $1,065.

Samsung is yet to confirm when the Galaxy Note 8 will be launched in China. Rumor has it that the company will unveil it in China on September 13 and launch it on September 23. It’s unclear if this cheaper Galaxy Note 8 will be sold in any other market.
