The Samsung Galaxy S8 is not as far away as it might seem, it is more than likely that it will be presented at the end of February 2017. Well, now it has been leaked thatThe Samsung Galaxy S8 would have 6 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage It would not be anything strange, since they are specifications that we have already seen in other high-end models this year.
We have to keep in mind that Samsung took a huge hit from the Galaxy Note 7 recall, so it needs a hit with its next model. The 6 GB of RAM is a very high number, although it won't take long for phones with 8 GB of RAM to appear. But more memory is not always optimal, models like the OnePlus 3 had problems for being the pioneers in this matter.
Regarding the 256 GB of storage, we are not surprised either. The iPhone 7 was introduced a few months ago in a 256 GB configuration, and it's clear that the Samsung Galaxy S8 isn't going to lag behind Apple's model. Of course, we do not know what other capacities the Korean brand will offer us, perhaps it will be encouraged to jump to the 64 GB base.
There have been many rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S8, such as that it would mount a 4K resolution screen, which would not be so unusual, but we cannot take it for granted either. It has also been commented that it could use a screen that would occupy practically the entire front, like that of Xiaomi Mi Mix. It wouldn't be impossible, of course, but it seems unlikely that Samsung would want to take a chance on unproven technology.
Samsung Galaxy S8 will surely be unveiled just before MWC 2017, a technology fair to be held in Barcelona from February 27 to March 2. If this new model follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, it could become a great success. In fact, many former Galaxy Note 7 users are going to switch to the Galaxy S8 at a discount, so sales will be strong from day one.
This leak that the Samsung Galaxy S8 would have 6 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage seems quite reliable to us, but it doesn't let to be a leak. We will have to wait a bit to confirm it, because it is more than likely that more and more rumors about this smartphone will appear as its launch approaches.
What do you think of the idea of a Samsung Galaxy S8 with 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage? Do these figures seem adequate to you?
