For the past months, speculations about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have been surfacing online. But this time, it is not just rumors about the handset but instead, leaked details as revealed by veteran phone leaker Evan Blass. He revealed the color variants of the device as well as its pricing details in Europe.
According to Blass, there are three color options for both Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus – black sky, orchid grey, and arctic silver. The first one is the black model that has been leaked before which has a pitch-black anodized metal frame. Similar to it, consumers have also seen the orchid grey in the past leaks in January. Lastly, the grey model is somewhere in between those two models.
Now, Android Central reported that it is not clear yet as to which of these models will be available in certain regions. It can be recalled that Samsung has already launched its flagship phones with various color variants. However, not all of them reached each store across the globe. With that fact at hand, consumers should wait for further announcement.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Pricing Details (EU)
Aside from the color options, Blass also leaked the prices of the phones in Europe. His tweet revealed that the standard one will have a price of €799. Its bigger brother, on the other hand, will hit the stores at a price of €899. Although these pricing details are only for consumers in Europe, Android Central noted that US buyers should expect the same numbers, meaning it would be around $860 and $960.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Pre-Order
With regards to pre-orders of the handsets, ET News reported that Samsung would start accepting orders on April 7. The pre-order period will run from that date until the 17th of the same month. Then on April 18, Samsung will have a “pre-launch” event for those who pre-ordered the handset. On a bad note, it would only be for consumers in South Korea.
For the US Market, there is no information yet as to when pre-orders will start in the region. Consumers could see a bunch of speculations online but should take all of those with a grain of salt because none of those came directly from Samsung. For now, it is clear that consumers need to wait for official confirmation from the company.
