Samsung might be preparing to launch a variant of the Galaxy S8 with 6GB of RAM

Over the course of the past few weeks, the rumor mill has been spinning at warp speed with regards to what Samsung has in store for its next-generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. We’ve already heard that the handset is destined to sport a Snapdragon 835 CPU, but a reliable tipster is now claiming that it’ll also be available in two storage sizes — 64GB and 128GB — with varying amounts of RAM — 4GB and 6GB, respectively — when it launches in China and South Korea.

Prior to this revelation, speculation hinted towards a variant of the Galaxy S8 launching with 256GB of internal storage on board and a colossal 8GB of RAM. The tipster, who operates under the handle @mmddj_china on Twitter, has reportedly heard from their sources that this won’t be the case and that the only variant that’ll be released in Europe, North America and South America will be the 4GB/64GB version — so it looks like those hoping for a high-capacity model in the regions are out of luck.

It would be wrong if we didn’t point out, however, that this information is far from confirmed, which means that it should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt until Samsung finally takes the wraps of the Galaxy S8 and its larger sibling, the Galaxy S8 Plus. Word on the street is that the firm’s planning to do so at a dedicated event on Wednesday, March 29, with a worldwide release penciled in for mid-April, though that could easily change if production doesn’t go according to plan.
