More details of Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S8 appear to have been leaked, this time pertaining to the Chinese/Asian version of the device.
A tipster claiming to be a Samsung employee revealed some details of the S8’s hardware in a series of tweets. For a start, he mentioned that the S8 might not be coming with an IMX 204 Sony sensor as was originally expected. He also adds that there might be a dedicated 6GB RAM variant with an Exynos processor coming to China.
S8’s CMOS may support Dual ADC.IMX204 support Dual ADC.But S8’s CMOS is not IMX204,I think.BTW,IMX204 is 20MP 1/1.7, it’s not for smartphones

He suggests that there will be 6GB RAM / 64GB storage and a 6GB RAM / 128GB storage variants available in China. Given Samsung’s history, it’s likely that this is the version we’ll see in India.
maybe Chinese and Koran version are only with 6GB RAM,6+64/6+128.that’s why I say a little different.

The western version of the smartphone will feature the Snapdragon 835 and possibly, a special, 256GB variant. We’ve also heard that Samsung is stockpiling Snapdragon 835 chips and that no other manufacturer has access to those chips.
Speaking of which, the S8 is expected to debut in late April and will be a no-show at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event this month. Other manufacturers have also had to shelve their Snapdragon 835 plans and will be debuting devices with the Snapdragon 821 at MWC.
