New Samsung Galaxy S8+ model features bigger storage, higher price
Are you holding off on pre-ordering a Samsung Galaxy S8+ because 64 GB of storage space just isn't enough? Boy, do I have good news for you! A Galaxy S8+ with double the capacity—that's 128 GB of internal storage—is coming.
Unfortunately, I also have a bit of bad news: it's not coming to the United States—at least, not yet. The 128 GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ will only see a China and South Korea release as part of a bundle. The bundle includes a Samsung DeX dock which—when connected to a monitor and input peripherals—turns the S8+ into an Android desktop PC.
To provide a smoother desktop experience, the new 128 GB Galaxy S8+ also features 6 GB of RAM, a 50 percent increase over the base model. The beefed-up specs plus the added DeX don't come cheap: South Korean news site etnews puts the price of the bundle at over US $1,000. Let's hope that if this new S8+ makes it stateside, it comes as a standalone product—our wallets will surely appreciate it.
