This year, Samsung launched an exclusive variant of the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage in select markets including India. With the Galaxy Note 8 around the corner, it looks like Samsung is repeating this trend again. A leak from Weibo has claimed that Samsung is developing a special edition of the phablet smartphone dubbed the ‘Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition’.
The Note 8 Emperor Edition will differ from the regular version of the Note 8 in terms of RAM and storage capacity. While the regular Note 8 is expected to pack 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, the tipster claims that the Emperor Edition Note 8 will include 8GB of RAM and a whooping 256GB of base storage. Also, the microSD card slot is expected to be retained suggesting an expandable storage space upto 512GB.
However, the leak claims that the Emperor Edition will remain exclusive to Asian Markets. The special edition phone is expected to be launched first in China, later making it’s way into South Korea. It is worthy to Note that the S8+ special Edition launched in India as well. So it will be interesting to see whether the Emperor Edition Note 8 will launch too.
The Global variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be powered by the Exynos 8895 SoC, while the U.S variant will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC. All this will be backed by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage. The smartphone is set to include a massive 6.3-inch infinity display and is expected to feature an improved S-Pen. Reports suggest that the Note 8 will be fuelled by a 3300mAh battery. The Galaxy Note 8 will be launched on August 23.
The Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition will reportedly come in Black, Blue and Grey colour options.
