Here's a clear look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 in gold
Samsung has made a habit out of releasing its flagship smartphones in various color variants, and things will be no different with the Galaxy S8. From what we've seen thus far, we are expecting the Galaxy S8 series to have four to six color versions, and one of them should be gold.

First spotted about a week ago in a couple of low-res hands-on photos, the gold Galaxy S8 can now be seen again, this time in a high-resolution render. Published by Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter), this new render also shows black and grey/purple variants of the upcoming phone - we've seen these before, of course. The full image seems to be part of some promo material, possibly including official wallpapers that will ship with the S8.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S8 family (including a 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and a 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+) on March 29. The company already released an Unpacked 2017 app that will allow anyone to view the event as it unfolds. 

Are you ready for The Next Galaxy?

This gold is better than other gold handsets... It's a subtle gold and not a bling bling gold... Nice... My account is ready...

EXACTLY what I ALWAYS think everytime i see a picture of the s8 but once you compare it with an s7 , iphone or almost every other device , you realise how small the bezel actually is lool i think its exactly half the s7 bezels (which people was saying are small last year)

Well they need some bezel improvement left which they can do with the S9.

This makes me wonder if the blue coral will have the dual tone design as that wont look very nice with the black face,

I wouldnt think so. Looks great on the Note 7 and S7 edge though :-) I am glad tgey chose black for the front. Because the sensor cutouts are too many and too big on a small bezel. Overall it just looks cool, but i'd rather have an S6 edge or edge+, or just keep my Note 7. I hate the Note 8 will likely being a similar look, but with a squared bezel...i'm guessing.

Wow! That promo pic making the screen completely blend in with the backdrop is stunning. Good marketing.

I actually really kind of dig the two tone look. Love the back in gold but front black. Hmmm.... Might decide on another color besides midnight black now

Think gold has been done to death. Bring some new colors. Just don't jank up the Note 8.

With all these leaks, samsung can save big money by cancelling the official announcement.

"With all these leaks, samsung can save big money by cancelling the official announcement." Not sure what you're trying to say there.

So many colors option. Nice to see but hopefully it don't ends up with only 3 colors option instead at the end.
