To further spoil the surprise, the latest rumor surrounding Samsung's upcoming handsets has it that they're going to be available in three color versions (at least in some European markets): black, silver, and violet. If that's true, Samsung might say goodbye to some Galaxy S7 colors like white and coral blue, while introducing violet as a fresh option.
This new piece of information comes from Twitter user Roland Quandt, who's been pretty reliable in the past. He also shared pricing details for Samsung's new phones (for Europe): the Galaxy S8 could cost €799, while the larger Galaxy S8+ may be sold for €899. So, apparently, the Galaxy S8 series will be more expensive than the Galaxy S7. We've heard about this before, so maybe customers should really get ready to pay more for this year's Galaxy flagships (unless, of course, they've got other high-end phones in mind).
While waiting for Samsung's March 29 Unpacked event, perhaps you may want to check out our Galaxy S8 and S8+ rumor review to see what the phones should/could be all about.
