So-called Emperor Edition of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 rumored to feature 256GB of native storage
The version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that most of us are familiar with carries 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. There is a Midnight Black version of the handset that features an enhanced 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. Samsung initially made 150,000 units of this model for the South Korean market, all of which were quickly sold out. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 expected to be introduced on August 23rd, the question is whether Sammy's high-end phablet will also be offered with enhanced specs. And the answer, according to the current speculation, is "Yes!"

A tweet from tipster Roland Quandt indicates that there will be a version of the Galaxy Note 8 stuffed with 256GB of native storage. That model might be offered in Korea only. This so-called Emperor version will double the internal storage, but will keep the amount of RAM inside at 6GB.

Additionally, word has leaked out about a possible 3D Touch feature that Samsung is including with the Galaxy Note 8. This would allow the user of the phone to press hard on an icon to uncover some additional features that users can access. While Huawei calls this Force Touch and Apple refers to it as 3D Touch, Samsung could decide to use the technology to eliminate navigation buttons on its mid to high-end Android models.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 should be introduced on August 23rd, a week before the 2017 IFA commences. The device will sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display and come with a 1440 x 2960 resolution. The Infinity Display calls for an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, and depending on where the Galaxy Note 8 is purchased, the Snapdragon 835 SoC or Exynos 8995 chipset will be found under the hood.
