Samsung considers launching the Galaxy S8+ with 6 GB of RAM in more markets


If you're sad at the thought that a beefed-up Samsung Galaxy S8+ (with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space) will only be available in South Korea and China, we have good news. Samsung may actually release this variant of the phone in more markets.

According to Korean publication Yonhap News, Samsung this week said that "plans to expand the sales [of the S8+ 128 GB] to other countries will be considered depending on market's demand."

As reported yesterday, the Galaxy S8+ with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory costs about $1,000 in South Korea - that's $150 over the price of the model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space (which will be widely available around the world). Needless to say, the higher price tag isn't surprising, and there may be plenty of customers who would gladly pay more to have extra RAM and extra storage space. Who knows, if Samsung senses that there's enough demand for the upgraded S8+, it could launch it in the US at some point.

In case you're wondering, only the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ is getting a version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, so the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 will be available only in the basic 4 GB / 64 GB configuration.

So, would you pay ~$1,000 to get 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space on your Galaxy S8+?
