Samsung is about to launch its two new devices, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, in a few weeks from now.
As the March 29 debut of the two smartphones draws nearer, the latest rumor suggests that the Galaxy S8 and its bigger sibling the Galaxy S8+ will both come in a novel color.
Curious as to what this shade is? Violet! Moreover, the upcoming smartphones from Samsung will be available in multiple hues.
What Are The Colors For Galaxy S8?
The other colors are reportedly the not so usual black and silver options. The latest leak comes from a popular leakster, Roland Quandt, who took to Twitter to share this interesting tidbit.
However, the veracity of Quandt's assertions is still shady even though he has cited an EU retailer as his source of information.
He also revealed the pricing for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, which may be at €799 or approximately $843 and €899 or approximately $948, respectively. These prices suggest that these new models may be costlier than the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be out in Black, Silver and Violet (!) colors, retail listings show. S8 priced at 799, S8+ at 899 Euro.

If the latest rumor proves to be true, then the company may exclude the Coral Blue and white options, which are presently available for the Galaxy S7. Whether the violet variant will be replacing these options is still not known.
Unfortunately, the tipster did not share an image of the rumored Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ donning the violet hue to support assertions.
