    If a Note 8 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory was available during pre-order would you buy it? It will be a bit more expensive of course, but do you think it would be worth the price of admission? For somewhat of a comparison the S8+ with 6GB of RAM is roughly selling for $1,020.00, but they are throwing in a free DeX. Would it be nice to have it as an available option from the very beginning? Do you think the Note 8 will come with 6GB of RAM as the base model to begin with? Would you rather have a lower cost 4GB base model as an option? What are your thoughts?

    The S8+ with 6GB of RAM is so popular that they are running into supply issues.

    Hopefully these supply issues will make Samsung realise it is time to move on to 6GB. Not for a bigger price, it should become the norm.

    6gb is fine. I'm good sticking with 64gb storage as well if that will raise the price.

    NO need for 128gb internal since I have top of the line 128gb micro SD in my S7 edge. I think 6gb will be standard on Note 8. At least, I think it should

    1) I'm happy with my current device but if I was looking for an upgrade, it would be a no-brainer to pre-order

    2) Yes, I do think it will come with 6GB, this is just another feature to make Note users feel like the extra price is justified and it will definitely help keep it running super smooth.

    3) I currently use about 2GB ram for my daily use so to me, 4GB is already more than enough. I would definitely sacrifice some RAM for more storage space. While you can get super fast MicroSD cards. Internal storage will always win.

    Can't wait to see the reviews. Samsung really need to nail this one to help everyone forget about... boom?

    internal memory is faster.

    You will not notice a difference. So why pay premium for it? No thank you.

    I have not only noticed the difference but noticed internal memory uses less battery life. Ext sd card often scanning burning up battery.

    None of that on my premium 128gb card. All is good.

    I install a lot of apps so 128GB would be great. You can't install apps to the micro SD card. With 128GB, I might actually be able to install some games too.

    I think I would jump on it. 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, and I already have a 256GB microSD card thanks to Samsung? 😎

    Yes, 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM is the way to go for flagships.

    Since for some reason I torch SD cards even high end SanDisk. The higher the internal storage for me the better. I take a large amount of pictures. 6gigs of ram would also be great. My last Note was the Note II. I now have a Nexus 6 so big phones don't bother me. Looking forward to the next Note.

    You're sure? We've been waiting for 6GB for awhile now. Probably won't make much difference until Samsung figures out Ram management. Unless it's gotten better since the Note 4, it's terrible.

    6gb of Ram and 128gb of storage...where have I heard this before? Oh! Before the Note 7 came out...let's not hold our breath. It would be stupid awesome but let's not hold them to it.

    IMHO unless your a gamer the additional ram really not the issue. Could always use more storage
