New Samsung Galaxy S8 renders show a purple / violet color option

New Samsung Galaxy S8 renders show a purple / violet color option
Next week, on March 29, when Samsung will finally announce the Galaxy S8 series, it may not have too many novelties left to reveal. We already know tons of details about the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and we've seen both smartphones in various leaked images. If you want to check out the Galaxy S8 once more, we can now take a look at some renders showing a purple / violet version of it - next to a more ordinary black variant.

These new renders come from Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who is usually spot on with leaked information, and they make an appearance mere days after live photos allegedly showing a purple S8 were leaked out. It's not exactly clear if what we have here is the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8, or the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+, but the two handsets look pretty much the same anyway.  It remains to be seen if both will be offered in exactly the same colors. 

All in all, the Galaxy S8 will seemingly have at least four color versions: black, purple, gray, and silver. Coral blue, gold, and white may be in the cards, too, though it's likely that availability of certain models will depend on market.

If you're planning to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8, which color do you think you'd rather get?

After never having actually seen the Emerald Green S6 that so many of you rave about, I finally googled it and...holy f*cking sh*t! That color easily comes in close after Blue Coral. It's such a beautiful shade of green.

Dude it looks million times better in person... It truly was the sexiest phone made in the best color ever for a phone possible imo. That has been my favorite color on a phone ever since I seen it and I love the actual Emerald gem even more now lol They wanna give us purple and orchid before Emerald Green, smh lol

In person??? How did you look at it in person fanboy? OMG the amount of pathetic Samsung fanboy cry is far too much in this site. It's exactly looks like a G6 to me in pictures. To be honest if Samsung don't price their phones right, they are in big trouble.

If you actually knew how to f**king read you'd get that he was talking about the Emerald Green S6. Everyone knows that you're only on about the G6 because you're a blind Samsung hater an you couldn't care less how much it costs. Honestly.. Who do you think you're fooling?

How?! The phone world is ruled by Samsung & Apple. No one is dethroning them anytime soon. Get your facts straight.

Topaz blue of the s6 was more striking than blue coral

I'm a LG Fan. But trust me these phones look amazing! Not a big fan of the S8+ but the S8 looks crazy good to me. Also, haters can Google me name. I've been working mostly for LG devices only. No is no way you can hide the fact that these phones look great. Really hope they are nearing the stock Android approach. Software by Samsung isn't really impressive like the Pixel/OnePlus 3.
