Many of us were disappointed when the Galaxy S8 was launched with just 4GB of RAM instead of the 6GB that the series has been definitely overdue for. As it turns out, Samsung may indeed launch a 6 gigabyte RAM variant of the S8+ in near future. In addition to 6GB RAM, the device will also sport 128GB of internal storage. This is confirmed news as the handset has received TENAA certification already, as you can see in the screenshot.
However, before you get all excited about Samsung finally launching a 6GB/128GB variant of the Galaxy S8, consider the two following points first.
1. It is probably going to be a China-exclusive initially.
2. The price of the device is expected to be KRW 1,155,000/$1,027
Unless you are in China and you are willing to shell that amount of cash out for the extra RAM and storage, you will just have to settle with the regular S8 and S8+ for now with 4GB RAM and 64GB in-built storage. Would this version be making its way to the US and other regions as well? It might, but we will have to wait on that.

Samsung has just launched its 2019 range of 8K QLED TVs in India and Twinkle Khanna was also there during the presentation for some unknown reason. Now the question is, should you shell out around 60 lakh rupees (roughly USD 86,500) for the 98-inch model? Well, if you are considering it, you might as well go ahead because that is not a sum which probably matters to you anyway!
If you find it to be too pricey though, don't worry, because Samsung has you covered with the more affordable 82-inch model for just INR 17 lakhs (roughly USD 24,500) and the borderline cheap 75-inch 8K QLED TV for only INR 11 lakhs (USD 16,000 roughly). If you did not get the sarcasm yet, you are way too rich or serious for reading this article I am afraid!
If the price on the 8K TV sets made you feel poor, don't worry about it, they are not meant for you or me. Even to those that can afford it though, I would personally recommend staying away from 8K right now and going with the Q90 65-inch (INR 4 lakhs/USD 5,770). Although you will be paying roughly twice the price which customers in the US have to, your expense will be well worth it (kind of and not really)!
