When Samsung had announced Galaxy S8 & S8+ last week, most of us were expecting different RAM variants but the company only introduced one of both with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
Now in its home market South Korea, Samsung has introduced a new 6GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8+. This was expected beacuse the handset was previously spotted on Chinese certification portal TENAA.
The new Samsung Galaxy S8+ variant in South Korea packs same internal specifications as earlier announced except this gets a 6GB RAM and bumped up 128GB storage. Also interestingly, this variant will feature company’s own Exynos 9 (Exynos 8895) chipset and not Snapdragon 835. Samsung’s SoC is also based on 10nm FinFET technology.
Other specifications for Samsung Galaxy S8+ include a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED ‘Infinity Display’ with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440×2960 pixels resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The rear camera on the device is a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera with LED Flash with OIS and f/1.7 aperture, where as the front accommodates an 8-megapixel auto focus camera with f/1.7 aperture and 80-degree wide-angle lens.
