Two days after successfully launching the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung is looking to out a relatively less powerful Galaxy Note 8. The most obvious change would be a bumped down RAM capacity at 4GB as well as on board storage of either 64GB or 128GB. The regular Note 8 has 6GB of RAM, the largest RAM ever on a Samsung phone. This was verified on TENAA, a Chinese counterpart of FCC. As such, this would be much cheaper than the regular Note 8 and is clearly a move to get more customers to buy the flagship phone. The regular Note 8 is reportedly priced north of $1100.
This strategy isn’t new to Samsung. Back in 2014, Samsung released the Note 3 Neo, a smaller, less powerful version of their then flagship phone, the Note 3.
