Samsung was earlier taking pre-orders for its 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ but unfortunately, these models were only limited to Korea, leaving the other markets no chance to experience what it is like to get a flagship with more RAM and storage. However, the latest rumor suggests that the upgraded models could actually be sold in other markets, but which one of those regions has Samsung allegedly targeted?
Samsung Already Received a Healthy Response From South Korea in Pre-orders, Upgraded Models Could Make It to Other Regions for Maximum Sales
With over 550,000 pre-orders already registered for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is having the time of its life with its newly announced flagships, even beating the likes of LG in the process. According to Yonhap, Samsung could be looking to bring its 6GB RAM-touting Galaxy S8+ to other regions, as it states the following.
“Samsung Electronics said the 6GB-RAM Galaxy S8 Plus will be initially sold in South Korea, but plans to expand the sales to other countries will be considered depending on market's demand.
It marks the first time for Samsung to release a smartphone with such a capacity. Industry watchers said the change reflects the rising demand for premium smartphones in China, a major market for Samsung phones.”
Keep in mind that Samsung was offering a free DeX Station when a consumer pre-ordered the Galaxy S8+ that featured 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal so we believe that if the company starts to present the same kind of offers, future users will display the same level of enthusiasm. The only question that remains is if the tech giant is going to be introducing the same variants in Europe and in the U.S. Looks like time will.
The U.S. happens to be the biggest smartphone market in terms of revenue generation so if the company is able to release those upgraded models in more countries, we believe that it will have a positive impact on the company’s financials.
Do you think Samsung should move with haste to release the 6GB RAM versions in different countries? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
