Let’s face it, we know roughly everything about a Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. With 10 days to go before Samsung’s large betray we have seen a new design, greatly lengthened displays, internal upgrades, enhanced camera and even the recover date. And now we have a final blank details…
Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, maybe a world’s many recognizable leaker has supposing a new information and what we learn will order opinion.
For starters Samsung looks set to launch a Galaxy S8 and incomparable Galaxy S8 Plus in only 3 sincerely unexciting colours. Blass tweets images of a new phones in ‘black sky’, ‘orchid grey’ and ‘arctic silver’. A reduction famous source claims purple will be available, though it seems Samsung is gripping things flattering simple during launch.

The good news is Samsung always introduces new colour options during a lifespan of a smartphones, so design a informed rose gold, immature and even red options of prior generations to seem during some point. Though it is frustrating that it seems you’ll be in for a wait.
Secondly another Blass tweet delivered pricing information in euros for both handsets, and this also comes with good and bad news. According to a leaker, Samsung is set to boost a seeking cost of a Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus over a 2016 models to €799 and €899 respectively. This is a €100 cost boost on a Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

But this competence not be as bad as expected. Previously leaks had suggested a new phones could start during over $1,000. Now European prices embody tax, though prices are also significantly aloft than in a US so $799 and $899 looks likely. Furthermore Samsung is delivering most bigger displays (5.8-inch and 6.2-inch vs 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch) and is believed to have increasing bottom storage from 32GB to 64GB (plus microSD) that significantly sweetens a cost hike.
Ultimately Samsung will finally put all these rumours to bed after this month, though maybe a bigger doubt is – with Apple also redesigning a iPhone in 2017 – has a association managed to keep any surprises adult a sleeve? I’m anticipating for a final notation change to a one foolish flaw.
