Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus In China Could Ship With 6GB RAM
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to be unveiled on March 29, at the company’s “Unpacked” event to be held in the New York City.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have been the center of several leaks and rumors and the latest buzz is that the Chinese variant of the flagship phone will house 6 GB of RAM.
The latest assertion is from Kevin Wang, a China-based analyst working with IHS as the Research Director, per a report from Android Police.
What Does The Analyst Share?
Wang has not only revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S8’s Chinese variant will support 6 GB of RAM, but reaffirms rumors that the international variant of the rumored device will be shipped with 4GB of RAM.
With Samsung all set to launch its much awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in the coming weeks, it is expected that the Chinese variant of the device will be announced later.
Keeping in mind that the Chinese variant of the 2016 Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge featured the Exynos 889o chipsets, it can be safely assumed that the Galaxy S8 may also come loaded with an Exynos 8895 SoC, instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
However, for U.S. and some other markets, the Galaxy S8 is expected to flaunt the Snapdragon 835 processor, which Samsung has manufactured in tandem with Qualcomm
Galaxy S8: What Do Analysts Say?
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to release on April 28 and not April 21 per reports. However, Samsung has confirmed the date for the preorders of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in its home country South Korea. The preorders will kick off on April 7 for the South Korean customers. The flagship smartphones are expected to go on sale from April 21 in the country. However, the global rollout of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ remain shrouded in mystery.
The Galaxy S8, is rumored to come loaded with the 3D Touch-like display, matching its arch rival Apple.
The speculated device is also expected to come loaded with the pressure sensitive home key. The pressure sensors are rumored to be installed only in the navigation menu, just at the bottom of the device, it has been described as “limited.”
However, based on a report, shared by KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, the Galaxy S8 may face lower sales when compared to the Galaxy S7. According to him, the flagship device is expected to face less demand when compared to its predecessors the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge and may be overshadowed by the iPhone 8.
