Report: iPhone 8 is the reason for new Galaxy S8 and LG G6 variants
by Plamen Dimitrov / Jun 02, 2017, 9:34 AM
Over the past few days, several reports indicated that both Samsung and LG are preparing to unveil additional variants of their 2017 flagships. Apparently, Samsung has decided to introduce additional color options for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, while LG is said to be cooking up "Pro" and "Plus" variants of the G6, which will feature different amounts of onboard storage.
At a first glance, both of these stories might seem unrelated, but according to The Investor, the two Korean tech giants are actually preparing for the launch of Apple’s new iPhone in September.
The media outlet cites industry sources which claim that Rose Gold will be one of the new color options for the 2017 Galaxy S duo. While it's needless to say that such speculations should be reviewed with a skeptical approach, it is interesting that render images of the S8+ bearing the same hue (pictured above) recently popped up on Chinese website Weibo. Furthermore, Samsung has used this tactic before - in a bid to recover some of the losses from the Note 7 recall, last year, the company released a Galaxy S7 Edge in "Coral Blue" which was the signature shade of the flaming phablet.
Meanwhile, LG is also allegedly taking the approach of implementing small changes with the G6 in a bid to stimulate sales. The supposed "Pro" and "Plus" versions of the G6 will respectively come with 32GB and 128GB of internal storage.

Can you troll any harder. You know damn well Samsung has done this for years and it's not because of the i8. Don't be so stupid. Samsung had pink gold or rose gold what ever you want to call it before apple and that's why apple has it now. iPA just writing bull s**t articles that even they know is not true and of course had to bring the note 7 into it some how.

Samsung is just adding extra colors which they're been doing every single time, let's not start with the trolling. Besides they'll have the Note8 to stand against the iPhone, a pink S8 won't do it...

"Yeah iphone is the reason for everything". And PA, that Samsung color is typically called as pink gold and existed from note 4. Every year, they introduce this color but is limited to few markets, although I saw s7 pink gold at best buy. https://9to5google.com/2015/10

And Iphone 8 is due to Samsung S6 edge, S7 edge and S8 duo. Iphone 8 with its amoled bezeless display obviously has nothing to do with Samsungs premium devices right??? Nooooo only Apple can only influence other companies LOL The hypocrisy.

Samsung said at the "unbox your phone" event that they would be releasing new colors later in the year. They didn't do that in a hurry just because of the new iPhone. I don't know about LG, tho. Doesn't really matter tbh. The g6 pro and plus are very welcomed if they're as good or better as the original
