Samsung Might Have an Amethyst Galaxy S8 Version Being Prepared Just for You


Samsung’s Galaxy Note7 fallout forced the company to introduce newer color models in an attempt to help consumers forget about what happened with its flagship. The manufacturer has still intended for both its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus to come in a variety of colors, but it looks like the imagination of the firm has run wild this time around.

Samsung’s official website in India has a signup page where it has a question that asks the user which color would they would prefer to see on the new Galaxy device. The options included are Black, Silver, and Amethyst. This is different from previous reports which suggest that in place of Amethyst, the color Violet would be available when the phones are announced. Violet is quite similar to Amethyst, so it is more than possible that all Samsung did was change the names of these tints.

If you start a Google search for the term ‘Amethyst’, the results thrown back in your direction show a bright color that is very similar to Violet, so in the end, Samsung might just be changing up the names of these colored devices. Multiple colored models are a nice little addition to add traction to those sales as Apple did the same thing with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus announcement. Adding the Jet Black and Black color models to its list improved demand thoroughly, to the point where you had to wait an excruciatingly long period to get your hands on the uniquely colored models.

Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have continuously been rumored to be announced on March 29, and while earlier rumors pinpoint the flagships’ release date to be set at April 28, Ming-Chi Kuo remains adamant that both devices are going to be announced on April 21. The previous report also stated that both phones are not going to feature a resolution of 2560 x 1440, but 2960 x 2400 instead. Galaxy S8 Plus, thanks to its larger size, will feature a 3,500mAh battery, compared to the smaller 3,000mAh cell present in the Galaxy S8.
