Samsung has officially started selling a phone in China, and it looks like the company might be doing something to try and get people excited about the phone.
We don’t have much information about the device, but according to a thread on Chinese-language forums, the phone is the Samsung S8 Plus, and that means that you can buy it for $1,999.99 from Samsung’s online store.
There are two variants of the phone available: the standard S8+ and the S8+, which includes a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, and a 64-bit Exynos 7420 chip.
The latter version is a slightly smaller version of the S9, with a 5.7-inch display, and 64-bits Exynus SoC.
The two phones come with different software versions, and there’s a $99.99 upgrade that will get you the S7+ model, but Samsung doesn’t seem to be releasing that.
The only thing that’s certain is that Samsung will be rolling out a phone with the Galaxy S8, which was rumored to be the flagship phone in the S-series for the Galaxy Note 7 recall, though that didn’t happen.
Update, October 5: Samsung has announced that it’s releasing a new phone in its lineup that will include the Galaxy 7 and Galaxy Note 5.
