Out of nowhere, a wild Samsung Galaxy S8 in Purple appears!

Out of nowhere, a wild Samsung Galaxy S8 in Purple appears!
Recently, we learned that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are supposedly being prepared in four color variants – Blue, Gray, Black, and Silver. But earlier this month, word got out that Samsung is making a Puprle version as well. And leakster @kksneaksleaks has managed to get to it, posting four photos of the Milka-colored Galaxy S8 on Twitter.

What we're seeing is completely consistent with all the previous leaks available, so truthfully, there isn't much to reflect on. If the late, great Prince lived today, he would have pre-ordered this Galaxy S8.

With little over a week left until the smartphone's announcement event – which may or may not involve an on-site fire squad as pondered by some of you guys – we look forward to seeing the other color variants in advance (update: Almost there!). We've already peeked at the Black one, and it certainly gives the Jet Black iPhone 7 a run for the money!

Remember, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be officially unveiled March 29 and released by the end of April. There's a lot more that we know about Samsung's hero phone at this point, so check out the articles below if you have to get up to speed.

It's a dummy, but this is Phone Arena so they act like it's the real deal.

Sorry but xperias do purple better. This looks like it was mixed in mud color. Good choice offering nevertheless.

How about black and gold. Black with gold metal sides and the logo

2 tone scheme looks awful, purple back and black front? This is a weird move by Samsung given the previous few models design ethos, defo going for the all black variant if this is the case

They're copying Sony but failed

What's your definition of fail? Even if I agree u, it seems like the creator failed compared to the copier. At least warning and sales wise.

But... the Purple Xperia Z2 looked sexy as heck, though.

Interesting. I guess they saw people complain about all those sensors on the thin bezel of that gold one, so they decided to make it all black in the front. Which makes sense since it's all screen.

I'm not a fan of these designs at all, pointless gimmicky curved screens and glass front and back which made the S7 fragile. The design is too tall

You better get used to the tall screens because it's going to become the standard sooner than you think.
