Samsung is about to unveil new flagship smartphones at an event on March 29 in New York City. A retailer has just revealed some of the color options of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, and a new Amethyst shade could be on the way.
Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Details Continue To Leak
After months of leaks, we're getting closer to the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The company is set to introduce its highly anticipated flagship smartphones at an Unpacked event on March 29. We have a pretty good idea of what Samsung has in store for its new handsets, and one of the main new features will be 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch near-bezel-free Infinity Displays.
We got our first look at the new displays when images of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus leaked in February, and renders of the devices were published online to compare how the size of the new smartphones stack up to previous Galaxy flagship handsets.
A recent report claimed that Samsung was planning to launch a new violet color option that will be exclusive to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, and now a second source has revealed that the purplish-hue may actually be Amethyst.
A retailer has just posted an early signup page that looks very similar to Samsung's own official early registration page, where the company asks what you're looking for in your next Galaxy device. On its page, it appears as if Samsung is strongly hinting that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a superior camera, premium and stylish design, enhanced battery life, water and dust resistance, powerful gaming performance, and enhanced virtual reality experience.
Amethyst Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus On The Way?
While Samsung's page doesn't ask what color you prefer for the new Galaxy, the retailer's page lists three color options; Black, Silver, and Amethyst. While Black and Silver are two of the most popular color choices offered by smartphone makers, exclusive new colors have a tendency to be extremely popular at launch since it lets the world know you have the latest and greatest device.
Amethyst might not be the only jewelry-inspired hue to launch, as a Gold Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus was just spotted in leaked spy shots of the device. Luckily, with Samsung's March 29 Unpacked event only a few days away, we don't have long to wait to hear all of the official details, price, preorder, release date, and color options the company plans to offer for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
We'll be sure to keep you up to date on any additional Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus details as they become available.
