Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in March this year. While both these smartphones come with 4 GB of RAM, Samsung also announced a 6 GB RAM variant of the S8+ in South Korea later in April. The 6 GB RAM variant of the S8+ was only available in selected markets, however, the company has today launched the 6 GB variant of the S8+ in India as well.
While the 4 GB RAM variant of the Galaxy S8+ comes with 64 GB of internal storage, the 6 GB RAM variant has 128 GB of internal storage on board. Apart from this, there isn’t any difference between the 4 GB RAM and 6 GB RAM variants in terms of specifications.
“The resounding success of the recently launched Galaxy S8 & Galaxy S8+ underscores the unmatched superiority of Samsung in the premium smartphone segment. The new Galaxy S8+ variant with its best in class 6GB RAM & 128GB internal memory, will give our consumers the freedom to do infinitely more. It is the ultimate device for power users who aspire to explore new possibilities, are always on top of their game and for whom multi-tasking is a way of life.” said Mr. Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ 6 GB RAM variant will be available in Midnight Black color, and, as an introductory offer, Samsung will be giving a free wireless charger to the customers.
