Latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ renders show three colors and four angles

We've seen quite a few renders of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ disseminated by serial leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks). The latest render shows the eagerly awaited handsets in Black Sky, Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver. The pair will be unveiled on March 29th in New York City with the launch supposedly taking place on April 28th. Earlier today, we showed you a television ad and a teaser (in the form of a poster) for the two units.

The latest rumored specs for the Galaxy S8 include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution. Under the hood, depending on where the phone is purchased, will be the Snapdragon 835 chipset or the Exynos 8895 SoC. Both carry octa-core CPUs. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP rear-facing camera comes with an aperture of f/1.7. OIS is included. The front-facing selfie snapper weighs in at 8MP and takes wide angle photographs. Keeping the hamster wheel spinning is a 3000mAh battery. 

The Galaxy S8+ has similar specs except for a larger 6.2-inch display, and a 3500mAh battery. Both models have Android 7.1 pre-installed and feature an IP certification rating of IP68. That means that in theory, they can be submerged in water to a depth of nearly 5-feet for up to 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. Both models will also include a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and face recognition.

But they do sell exynos vs SD per region. And the phones are somewhat region-locked.. So.. Slightly geolimited

I think the best color would be the black one, to hide all those cut outs from the front panel

Hey stupid, the phones are all one color front and back. Haven't you seen other Samsung phones like the S7. This will be no different. I can tell your a Samsung fan.

Ah no your wrong. Look at all the images with your 3rd eye and see that they all have a black face or front bezels and the edges and backs are the colored sections. Just the reality here bud no way was Sammy gonna have a look like their last years S editions​!

They'll release the enticing colors for 1.5x the price. Samsung also wants to milk their sheeps.

that's limited edition.. and samsung won't get much profit for selling limited number with not expensive pricetag.. and they also need to pay marvel for using ironman themed color and picture

Yes that's what Samsung want you to believe. It's "LIMITED". Riiiight, coloring a phone RED doesnt make it limited. Oh wait...

I prefer if back and front colors is uniform, so it doesn't looks like a two piece.

Given the all screen element of the design i think the black is fine.

The promotion image for S8 look like outline of a butt with the words #theNextGalaxy insurted like a dildo. Sorry, but what's seen cannot be unseen.

Eh ?. I don't see it at all. Maybe if it was a backwards 3. Are you sure you are not wearing your iglasses?

I had my "Reduce White Point" turned on (putting my kid to sleep), so the right half of the "8" faded out... Now that's off, You're right, doesn't seem like I'm making any sense... #nevermind...

I think what you saw says more about you than it does the phone.

Lol. Why can't people love the phones they love. Why must you put down the phone you don't have? Galaxy is great. IPhone is great. Those things aren't mutually exclusive.

Still looks better than an iPhone.
