Rumors about Samsung preparing a Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition are beginning to spread so much that it’s hard ignore them. This variant should sport better specs and will be available in Asian market.
The standard version of the phablet which will be unveiled on August 23, is more likely expected to feature 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, even though there where rumors about 6GB of RAM also. This Emperor Edition is expected to get 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB internal storage.
It wouldn’t be a big surprise, because Samsung did the same thing with Galaxy S8, which was released with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage, in China, South Korea, India, Hong Kong and Japan, but only in the last one it was called Emperor Edition.
It cost around $1,030 but they went of the shelves lightning fast, which kinda set a new trend on the market. A bad trend. Now, rumors suggest that Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition might “feature” a price tag around $1,100, as iPhone 8 is expected to cost also. It would become the most expensive smartphone made by Samsung.
Hopefully, people won’t go again for such prices, because we already see a worrying trend on the market, with smartphone makers pushing the prices up again and again.
