Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ might be available in violet, among other colors
With all the leaked Galaxy S8 images and details seen until now, Samsung may have little to no surprises left in store for March 29, when it's going to finally announce its next flagship smartphone family.

To further spoil the surprise, the latest rumor surrounding Samsung's upcoming handsets has it that they're going to be available in three color versions (at least in some European markets): black, silver, and violet. If that's true, Samsung might say goodbye to some Galaxy S7 colors like white and coral blue, while introducing violet as a fresh option.

This new piece of information comes from Twitter user Roland Quandt, who's been pretty reliable in the past. He also shared pricing details for Samsung's new phones (for Europe): the Galaxy S8 could cost €799, while the larger Galaxy S8+ may be sold for €899. So, apparently, the Galaxy S8 series will be more expensive than the Galaxy S7. We've heard about this before, so maybe customers should really get ready to pay more for this year's Galaxy flagships (unless, of course, they've got other high-end phones in mind).

While waiting for Samsung's March 29 Unpacked event, perhaps you may want to check out our Galaxy S8 and S8+ rumor review to see what the phones should/could be all about.

Might go back to black if it's all blacked out... If the red rumor is true then a pre-order will be in my future...

"If that's true, Samsung might say goodbye to some Galaxy S7 colors like white and coral blue, while introducing violet as a fresh option." There is no way in heck Samsung is going to ditch it's heavily-marketed Blue Coral this early!!!

Based on what they have done on S6 and S7, they'll just release the ordinary colors first; like black, white, gold or grey/silver and then release the enticing colors a year after coz fans will buy another.
