Today, some information on the pair's prices has surfaced. Take a look below to find out more.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Will Feature Three Color Variants And High Price Tags
Taking a look at all the leaks so far, one thing is certain. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will not be cheap smartphones. Apple and Samsung seem to have gotten in another race - of making the most expensive flagship smartphone. While Cupertino's iPhone 8 is rumored to feature a price tag north of $1000, the S8 and S8+ won't fall too short of this mark either. Rumored specifications for the pair include the Snapdragon 835, 4/6GB RAM, spec'd out rear camera sensors and more.
Now, tipster Roland Quandt claims to have more information for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, straight from a European retailer. He's confirming what we've heard previously for the devices. The Galaxy S8 and its larger variant are rumored to carry price tags north of $800. This places them out of reach for a lot of folks. Furthermore, Quandt also provides us with details for their color variants, with a twist.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be out in Black, Silver and Violet (!) colors, retail listings show. S8 priced at 799, S8+ at 899 Euro.

Color variants for the S8 and S8+ will be Black, Silver and Violet. Violet is an interesting choice from Samsung, as the Korean tech giant rarely caters to the feminine with its gadget launches. It's a better color than pink too, if you ask us. Violet has a certain masculine touch to it as well, as opposed to the former which is associated completely with femininity. Moving towards price tags, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be priced at €799 and €899 respectively. These translate into $845 and $950, as we've told you all along.
So, to wrap it up, the Galaxy S8 will be an amazing smartphone, with an equally high price tag. Flagship smartphones aren't for everyone after all and this year we'll witness this fact with more clarity. The pair will feature a dedicated virtual assistant termed Bixby and desktop connectivity, termed Dex. They'll launch later this month and will release in the final week of April. Thoughts?
