Latest leak reveals Galaxy S8 colours, pricing

20 March, 2017, 09:15 | Author: Nadine Todd

According to Evan Blass (@evleaks), pricing for Samsung's Galaxy S8, at least in European regions, will land at about 799€ which converts to around $850 in U.S. dollars. With 10 days to go before Samsung's big unveil we have seen the new design, greatly enlarged displays, internal upgrades, enhanced camera and even the release date.

Samsung is widely believed to be revealing the phone to the public on March 28 at a special Unpacked event in NY.

While no specifications have been released yet about the Galaxy S8, it seems that the LG G6 was designed specifically to compete with the upcoming flagship phone of Samsung. Could Samsung offer a "black pearl" color option for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus from the start? Also, a glossy black variant of the Galaxy S8 has been spotted in the wild, along with an official poster leak.

Previous hardware leaks appeared to confirm that Samsung would include the Edge screen that shipped with Galaxy S6 Edge and S7 Edge.

The new phones are also expected to have the iris-scanning capabilities that debuted for Samsung on the infamous Note 7, BGR reported.

"Rather astonishingly, Apple's iPad Pro actually begins at the lower price point of $680 for a device with a 9.7" display, Digital Spy said. According to the report, the Galaxy S8 will make combined use of phone's iris scanner, fingerprint sensor, and facial recognition technology to further strengthen authentication for mobile payments. Unfortunately, this little addition will cost you $129.99, which we expected.

However, there are some aspects where the older Samsung flagship beats the newer device. These prices would directly convert to about $858 for the Galaxy S8 and $965. Also as per latest claims of some insiders, Samsung has designed its Galaxy S8 with a sleek front panel from top to bottom leaving no space for a physical home button.
