Samsung will go all out for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The company’s in a bit of a rut this year. Not only is Samsung facing off with the Korean government for corruption allegations, it’s been a while since it has released a decent flagship as well. The last such device, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 faced an early demise due to battery malfunction. So the bar is even higher this time for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Today, we’ve got information on the pair’s special versions, destined for China. Take a look below for more details.

Samsung Will Launch Special Versions Of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in China With 6GB RAM

A lot of rumors have already surfaced for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ so far. These have ensured that Samsung will add very little details which we don’t already know about at the pair’s launch. This year, the Korean tech giant’s flagship smartphone lineup will shake things up for design. The Galaxy S flagship lineup from Samsung has always taken a serious approach to it, with color options. Now, we’ll get seven colors with the Galaxy S8, as Samsung borrows a leaf from Google’s playbook for the Pixel and Pixel XL.

Folks over in China are in for a special treat with the device. IHS securities report that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will have two RAM configurations in the country. Samsung will also launch a 6GB variant of the pair. This will ensure that existing smartphones with 6GB RAM do not cut into the Galaxy S8’s sales. The company, as we mentioned above, has got a lot riding on the devices after all.
