The ocean of leaks, reports and speculations that were doing rounds on the internet in the recent months, about the Samsung’s hottest ever flagships, Galaxy S8 and S8+, seems to be go never ending. There have been surplus of news coming out, even today, with the phones been launched officially yesterday. Interestingly, as we have conferred earlier, it seems that China will have an upgraded version of the S8+, as per latest reports.
After the duo launched, we have now came to know that much of the previous leaks were true. In the same way, we already said that, though both the devices will feature a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage; there will also be an additional variant on the S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage capacity. Moreover, we were also expecting the high-end variant to be available in selected markets such as China and Korea.
Now, a recent post on Weibo, by the famous @iceuniverse, have added more strength to the previously alleged fact to be true. Yes, China will be the only lucky one, to caress the bumped-up Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. Well, to add even more strength to the fact, the said version of the phone had also been spotted on the TENAA listing, a while ago.
We have now noted that both the handsets feature, quite similar specs in various aspects. For instance, they both sports Quad HD Super AMOLED displays, while both render 2K resolutions (the sizes differ anyway); 12 MP rear camera and the same 8 MP front facing camera with auto-focus; 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM; and obviously both will run on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS, out of the box.
Moreover, this fashion seems to be repeating, as we know that the 6GB variant of the Galaxy C9 Pro, was first released only on China. However, we haven’t got hold of the pricing details yet. But it is rumored to be priced heavy, as much as ¥6000, which could be barely translated as $870.
