Samsung in a press statement said it was launching the 6GB RAM variant due to the "tremendous response to its recently-launched flagship" phones.
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ was initially launched with only 4GB RAM on board, and that had greatly disheartened many Galaxy fans worldwide. This is now on sale in China and South Korea, but it will soon be available in India too.
The Galaxy S8 Plus is one of the most popular high-end smartphones on the market right now. As an introductory offer, Samsung would be bundling in a free wireless charger worth Rs 4,499 along with the smartphone.More news: Don't compare Trump's Paris decision to Nicaragua's - they've embraced renewable energy

Samsung Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage also sees a steep rise in price compared to the regular version of the phone.
The handset will apparently feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and will come with 6GB of RAM and a choice of 64GB and 128GB of included storage.
The rest of the internals of this variant of Galaxy S8+ remains the same. It will be available in the Midnight black colour and comes with all the bells and whistles of the flagship like Samsung Pay and the AI assistant, Bixby which will be launched later in the year. For comparison, the standard variant of the Galaxy S8 Plus retails for Rs. 64,900.
