Check out the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Black Sky, Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver (UPDATE)
A new tweet from tipster Evan Blass reveals renders of both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ in three different colors. The trio of hues include Black Sky, Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver. The official color options should be announced on March 29th when Samsung unveils its new flagship phones, making them public for the first time. The eagerly awaited Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are expected to be launched on April 28th.

UPDATE: Blass also has disseminated a second tweet that leaks the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ in Euros. According to Blass, the Galaxy S8 will be priced at 799€ ($859 USD). The Galaxy S8+ will have a price tag of 899€ ($967 USD)

The latest rumored specs for the Galaxy S8 include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960. Powering the device will be the Exynos 8895 chipset, or the Snapdragon 835 chipset. Both feature an octa-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. For those seeking additional storage, a 256GB microSD slot is available. The 12MP rear-facing camera carries an aperture of f/1.7, PDAF laser focus and OIS. The front-facing 8MP camera shoots selfies and handles video chats, while equipped with an aperture of f/1.7. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.1 is pre-installed.

The Galaxy S8+ will have the same specs except for a larger 6.2-inch display and a 3500mAh battery. Both models will come with a fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner and there has been talk about using facial recognition to unlock the phone and verify identity.

#1, apply.
#2, everyone knows that in both colors and features, the Note is always better than the S.

The note is dead ay least in name. I don't think Samsung is foolish enough to bring out that bears that name.

Thank you! Those are absolutely screen protectors! Seriously, I don't know why people keep thinking that Samsung will allow those sensors to be so pronounced. It just won't happen.

So it appears the front is going to be black on all the colors to hide the ugly sensors and the back and sides of the phone will be different colors?

Wow, I hope it is true because with coloured bezels the phone looks hideous. Looks very nice in these pictures. Shame for Samsung's heavily modified Android fork, lack of digital noise cancelling and -lately- late updates that keep me a Sony customer. If it weren't for these points, I'd give this phone a try.

Yeah, those sensors look really ugly on light colors.

So the front bezels will be black regardless of color ? That would be on way to hide the top bezel sensor array.

all come with black front panel?
nice decision...

All black front bezels are actually an attractive contrast for any bright colored rear panel.

Wau finally a different phone design. Yes I know about Xiaomi, but this is Sammy so I can't compare.

They had to make that decision because of the very busy top bezel. It's either black or a dark hue.

Hold up? 3000 and 3500mAh for each' chassis respectively? Like how hard is it to instead do 3500 and 4000mAh instead? People are expected to be paying the big bucks for them to figure that s**t out no?

Rather have less mAh and not have the phone blow up on me. I'm okay with it. I miss my note 7, can't wait to get this phone and replace my edge.

Had no relation to batt capacity whatsoever but rather crappy suppliers' crappy batt packs. Plus if Samsung know what's good for them at this point then that's sorted out already.

Nothing wrong for asking more for your money imho, especially if these models are gonna be that big then a bit more thickness should be proportionate enough.
