having recently furnished us with a couple of high-profile flagships, all eyes are now squarely focused on what Samsung will bring to the table. Over the past couple of weeks since Mobile World Congress, sightings of the so-called Galaxy S8
and S8+ have been plentiful, which makes sense given the scheduled announcement later this month
. With reports suggesting that Sammy offer as many as seven color options from the get-go, we can now mull over a nice clear shot of what looks to be a gold Galaxy S8+
Perhaps due in part to the demise of
the Note 7
, Samsung's Galaxy S8 line is going all-curved, and all-large
. The display of the Galaxy S8 looks set to offer a 5.8-inch diameter, while the larger S8+ (Plus) could creep all the way up to 6.2
inches. Because of the near-bezel-less finish and rounded corners, however, the devices won't be outrageously large compared with their peers

The new leak gives us a couple of hands-on glimpses of the more substantial Galaxy S8+ in gold. There's a quick peek at the lock screen, Calls app, and the on-screen nav bar that will pick up the slack left by the absent physical home button. The gold S8+ is also snapped alongside a Galaxy S8, which offers a bit of perspective.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the gold version will also be accompanied by
bright black, matte black, blue, orchid, silver and pink shades. But while he does infer that all seven colors will be ready for the supposed April 21 consumer launch, it's very likely that availability of any given color will vary by market.
