Samsung Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM sells for $1,020 and comes with a free DeX Station


If some of you had any doubts that Samsung will launch a Galaxy S8/S8+ with 6GB RAM model, the following news should make it official. Before going into details, it's worth noting that this particular variant will only be available for purchase in China, at least at launch.

Well, it looks like the 6GB RAM/128GB ROM Galaxy S8/S8+ is now listed on Samsung's Korean website. Unfortunately, the handset did not yet confirm the price for which it will sell.

Korean publication ETNews claims Samsung will offer the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM for 1,155,000 won, which is about $1,020. Although that's much more expensive than the regular 4GB RAM model available in the rest of the world, customers who pre-order this special edition Galaxy S8+ will get a DeX Station accessory worth of $150 for free.

Apparently, Samsung was forced to launch the 6GB RAM Galaxy S8+ in China in order to better compete with native handset makers like Vivo, which already released a couple of smartphones that pack the same amount of RAM.

The bad news for Samsung is that all these 6GB RAM smartphones made by Chinese OEMs are priced much lower than its Galaxy S8+. We'll see how good the sale for this special edition will go in the coming months, but we hope it will be made available in other regions as well.
