When Samsung announced the new Galaxy S8, it only talked about a single model of the device with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. But it turns out there’s a better, more powerful variant of the larger S8 Plus that offers double the storage space at 128GB and 6B of RAM — but it will only be available in South Korea and China.

While prices haven’t officially been announced for the beefed-up S8 Plus, ETNews reports that the upgraded model will cost roughly $1,020 dollars for a bundle that includes the phone and the DeX desktop dock (which typically goes for $150). A new listing from Samsung’s Korean website seems to confirm the bundle, although there’s still no formal word on price. But given what the regular S8 and DeX dock cost, chances are that whenever we do get a final list price, it won’t be cheap.

There’s also no word on whether or not the more powerful S8 Plus will ever make its way to the US or Europe. So if you’re looking to get the best possible version of the S8 Plus, you might want to start looking into tickets to Korea.
