The latest from the rumor mill reveal the purported Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus pricing and the possible color options for the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone.
A Ukrainian retailer allegedly listed items revealing information about the S8 smartphones on its database, according to SamMobile. One of the items listed as SM-G950 is said to be the Galaxy S8 while the other model, SM-G955, is the bigger Galaxy S8 Plus.
The list shows Black, Orchid Gray, and Gold as the color options for the new Samsung smartphones.
The leaked database of the retailer also shows the Ukrainian Hryvnia retail price of the two smartphones. When converted, the price of Galaxy S8 will be $950, while the Galaxy S8 Plus price will be $1,050. If this information holds water, it corroborates an earlier rumor that suggests the S8 and S8 plus will be 15 to 20 percent more expensive than the Galaxy S7.
The information posted on Twitter has since been deleted.
