Galaxy Note 8 Emperor edition? 256 GB of storage, 8 GB of RAM


Samsung has a history of launching special edition phones in its homeland of South Korea. From the Galaxy S5 Plus back in the day to the Galaxy Note FE that launched this month. A leakster is claiming that the Galaxy Note 8 might have its own super-powered edition that has a chance to be limited to the South Korean market as well.

We are not sure if this is an issue with translation, but it seems that the suggested device is called the Note 8 Emperor edition. It is said that while the “regular” Note 8 would have 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM, this special beast would sport 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

Is this rumor to be believed? We'd take it with a grain of salt, sure, but it doesn't sound too far fetched. There was a special edition of the Galaxy S8+ sold in South Korea and China — it had 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM. It cost a pretty penny, but eventually sold out.

So, who's to say that Sammy won't push the envelope just a bit further with the Note 8?

Looks like the Note 8 Hype is already over. I'm pretty sure this is exactly what the Note 8 will look like.

What is this trend with Samsung and going with this TV remote phone format? Tall and skinny on a phone just looks awful.

"uh, oh, only 4Gb of ram.. and just 64Gb, what a crap" Samsung emperor "What an overpriced crap with no IR blaster!!" I expect such classic statements coming from "power users".

i doubt that 8gb instead of 6gb is a big differentiator and a huge selling point so no way samsung will make this happen ......but the galaxy note 8 will lag like the galaxy s8 (ignore this. i have been diagnosed with lumbergh-itis)

This represents nothing like the Note series. It's tall and so narrow, rather than being wider. It looks ugly. Note series have squarish edges not curved.

Note is known to be wider than S series. If it's just like taller than the S8, not wider, then what's the point?

Completely untrue. Only the original Note was wider than the preceding Galaxy S. It had a 16:10 aspect ratio.That was 6 years ago. Every Note since has had the same aspect ratio as the S, so I don't see how you can say the Note series is known to be wider. It's not.

If it keeps the same screen aspect ratio as the S8 (18.5:9, which it likely will) then the bigger screen will make it taller AND wider, as it always has, not just taller.

"There was a special edition of the Galaxy S8+ sold in South Korea and China — it had 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM..." It is also available in INDIA and many more countries

If one phone deserves all that silicon goodness it's the note series. It does what other phones can't... Actually be productive when other phones just utilize that extra silicon to get back to social media apps faster... Release that Emperor beast everywhere!
