Korean version of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950KOR) is now FCC certified
The Korean version of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 8, sporting the model number SM-N950KOR, is now FCC certified. The phone is expected to be made official following an August 23rd introduction just one week before the September 1st opening of annual trade show IFA in Berlin. This model will feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display carrying a resolution of 1440 x 2880. 6GB of RAM is inside, and the Korean bred model is powered by the Exynos 8995 SoC.

The FCC filing indicates that the Korean Galaxy Note 8 will use the FCC E-label technique, and the screen will include an edge-to-edge glass. The FCC ID number is A3LSMN950KOR. Before July turned into August, we told you about the four variants of the Galaxy Note 8 that were green lit by the Feds. One model is the global "Korean" version powered by the Exynos 8995 chipset with 6GB of RAM. Two U.S. models have the Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood, and a display only variant has no wireless capabilities.

Most of the information released by the FCC doesn't give away the specs that you've been looking forward to hearing about. But with the official introduction of the Galaxy Note 8 less than three weeks away, we all can summon up the strength to wait for the gala event, right? If by chance you cannot, your best bet is to check in here several times a day for the latest rumors and leaks pertaining to Sammy's next high-end phablet.

So the US F.C.C. handles Korean Model Equipment-certifications? Got it.

My 256gb card is holding up just fine. It processes 4k video like a champ, watching movies or listening to music is also without issue. Just give the 64gb version and I'll be happy.

I really hope the 128 and 256GB versions come out in all markets.

For what if it has expandable storage? I remember everyone was crying when Samsung didn't include it with the S6 and Note 5

UFS versus microSD speeds. Some streaming services don't allow media to be saved on the storage card. I do use a 128 microSD, but functions like viewing pictures takes a second or two to refresh.

I suppose SD card is good for storing 4K videos and other multimedia files, because it frees up space in the internal memory for other stuffs like games and whatever. I value SD cards a lot.

I bought my 128 GB microSD out of frustration with the Note5's lack of memory expansion. It's held up for the last two years, and stocks of TV series and movies supplement my work flow - they keep me awake. Having at least a 128 GB internal and 128 GB microSD will give me ample space, but I'd like to get the 256 GB variant if it's available.

That was the sole reason why I didn't get the Note 5.
