Twitter user Roland Quandt, who has leaked about several handsets in the past, has said that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be available in three colour options: Black, Silver and Violet. While we’ve seen black and silver colour options on Samsung’s handsets for a while now, it’s refreshing to see Samsung add a new colour to its smartphones. However, how violet will look like on the S8 and S8 Plus can only be commented upon until either images of these surface online or the launch takes place (whichever is earlier!).
Roland Quandt also added that the S8 could be priced at €799 (approximately ₹56,000) , whereas the larger Galaxy S8+ might come for €899 (approximately ₹63,000). This is a lot more than the Galaxy S7 which was being sold for ₹48,900 at the time of its launch and is presently priced at ₹41,653.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus are expected to be launched on March 29 at an event. Do stay tuned for more updates on these handsets.
