According to a latest news, the 256GB Samsung Galaxy Note 8 variant has been confirmed to be launched in South Korea through the wireless KT Olleh carrier. The service provider will sell both the 256GB and 64GB models of the Galaxy Note 8 after the smartphone officially goes on sale next month. However, there will be though only the Midnight Black and Deep Sea Blue color options that are available for purchase from the company. In the launch event last week, Samsung already confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 would launch in three variants, though the 256GB ROM model wasn’t mentioned for the United States and Europe. So, KT Olleh is the first official distributor to sell the most high-end variant.
Samsung is also being expected to be working on the Emperor Edition of the Galaxy Note 8, boasting 8GB of RAM and 256GB of flash memory, though the company has yet to confirm any information about this variant. The company previously released an Emperor Edition of the Galaxy S8 Plus, coming with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for Chinese, South Korean, and a few Asian markets. However, until now it’s not clear how well did that device sell. The Emperor Edition version will be absolutely more powerful than the standard version of the Galaxy Note 8.
The most affordable variant of the phone coming with 64GB ROM has already been priced at $950 in the U.S. and slightly more expensive in Europe and Australia. Many watchers are expecting that the flagship will get a massive commercial success in order to allow the Seoul-based electronics manufacturer to make amends for the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, which the company stated during the Galaxy Note 8’s announcement. The latest Samsung-made flagship is currently available for pre-orders in most of the markets and will be officially on offline stores from September 15.
