Many Android smartphones, including Razer Phone, OnePlus 6 and MI Mix 2, are equipped with 8GB of RAM. However, the users of Samsung’s handsets are yet to get a device that has more than 6GB of RAM. The two recent models, S9 and S9 Plus, have 4GB and 6GB respectively. Moreover, it does not look like Samsung will employ 8GB of RAM on their upcoming Galaxy Note 9.
Note 9 set to be launched in one week
Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which is set to be launched during the Samsung Unpacked event on August 9th, has long been a subject of many rumors. Thanks to leaks from various sources, such as carriers, the supply chain or certification authorities, we know a lot about this new smartphone.
The online benchmarking sites can reveal a lot
Some features of the upcoming mobile devices can be unveiled through the online benchmarking sites. In the case of Galaxy Note 9, the upcoming smartphone can be found in hardware and software configurations, but there are no models of the new device with 8GB of RAM. This cannot be taken as a confirmation, but it surely gives us a clue on the possible level of RAM in Note 9.
The level of RAM might depend on the price of Galaxy Note 9
Based on what we know so far from Samsung, the remarkable performance of the new phone will be combined with an affordable price, which can only mean that the device will not have 8GB of RAM, as that would significantly increase its cost. Since it is expected that Galaxy Note 9 will rival iPhone X Plus on the market, the difference of prices between them cannot be too big.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might be the last model of its line
Considering the fact that the future of the Note line is uncertain, Samsung might not want to make any groundbreaking changes to the launch of Galaxy Note 9. With the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S10, which is expected to launch at the beginning of 2019, the South Korean company might decide to introduce all the great improvements on their new highly anticipated phone. The decision to use 8GB of RAM on Galaxy S10 could be a great strategical move, as it would raise the profile of the newest member of the S family.
