Latest rumor has the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ wearing these four colors
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S8+, are both expected to meet the light of day on March 29th. Ironically, this is going to take place in the Big Apple. The new models could be released on April 28th. The latest rumored color options include Coral Blue, Orchid Gray (Grayish Purple), Midnight Black and Arctic Silver. The Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2960. Just yesterday, we showed you some pictures that allegedly displayed a glossy black version of the Galaxy S8. That could be the Midnight Black color of the phone.

Depending on where the phones are purchased, under the hood will be the Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chipset. Both offer an octa-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. The 12MP rear-facing camera features an f/1.7 aperture, and the shooter includes OIS for steady video filming. The fingerprint scanner is located to the right of the rear camera. In front is an 8MP wide angle selfie snapping camera. The whole shebang is powered by a 3000mAh battery.

The only difference between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ is the larger 6.2-inch display found on the latter, and the larger capacity 3500mAh battery that  drives it. Both phones feature an IP68 certification rating meaning that they can be submerged to as deep as 3.3-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. They both have a fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner and offer face recognition to verify identity.

We are less than two weeks away until the unveiling of the two phones that will most likely define what a flagship Android handset should be in 2017-2018.

What is funny about that? Midnight black sometimes means that it has a slight blue tint in it.

Midnight black sounds glossy... Was looking forward to a matte black... Might have to go with the coral blue... Note 7 nostalgia...

This really isn't something to gloat about, to be honest. Just setting yourself up to being called stupid...which is true, if you're seriously still using a device that could combust at any moment and potentially injure yourself/others around you.

@aegislash Techie still uses 3 Note 7s without considering others safety.

Can you imagine him, sitting at his table, just starring at those damn things?

I can almost here him saying: Ahhhh....yes. I don't care what I have to give up; my hands, eyes, house, spouse, 401k, etc. None of that matters... as long as I have you three!

It's pretty terrifying.... and kinda poetic in a way.

We don't even have to discuss what an inconsiderate idiot Techie is. It's well established.

Don't you think I heard all the haters by now? Does it look like I care what you think?

"Don't you think I heard all the haters by now?"

Your definition of hater needs some serious reexamination...

"Does it look like I care what you think?"

A) How the hell would we know you idiot? We...can't... see...you.

B) This is how you respond to someone giving you safety advice? His comment wasn't meant to alienate you (unlike this post right here...) and it didn't REALLY insult your intelligence as much as it should have. Is your phone more important than your hand?

Lucky you.... I wish they sold the refurbished Note 7's, I would definetly choose it over the S8 and S8 plus.

Apart from efficient cpu and bezel less display there isn't anything more that justifies the higher price tag.

So you have to see someone to see if they care what you think?? Im pretty sure even from messages you can get the gist too from what they say.

Since he said he doesn't care what you think its self explanatory he doesn't.

IP68 means 3.3 feet for 30 minutes. Not inches.

IP68 is 5 feet, not 3.3.

IP68 is at least 1 meter (roughly 3.3 feet) or more continuous immersion. The duration is up to agreement between the manufacturer and the IEC. The manufacturer can claim more then 1 meter, but 1 meter is the spc it needs to meet to claim the 8 certification.

How is it ironic that Samsung is unveiling its flagship in the Big Apple?

I'm as hyped as the next guy around here, but that joke was a stretch.

Kiko, I can actually hear the crickets chirping in the distance after reading that joke...

I thought they both came with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage?
