Black or colored front? New Galaxy S8 images muddy the waters

Evan Blass (@evleaks), one of the famous and nearly ever-reliable tipster has revealed the colour options of the smartphone along with pricing details. With Blass's new leak, the mystery has been unravelled now. €799 for the standard Galaxy S8 is a fair chunk of cash by itself, while the bigger Galaxy S8 Plus is priced higher still at €899. If this turns out to be the official pricing, we must say that it's a huge amount of money.

The Galaxy S8 handsets will also be available in a variety of colour options as well; more than ever before: gold, silver, bright black (gloss), matte black, blue, orchid, and pink.

A new set of Galaxy S8 images from Evleaks claim to show the color options that will be available on Samsung's next flagship smartphone, when it's unveiled on March 29 in New York City. And of course, minimal bezels. In North America, the device may be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, while the Chinese version may have the Samsung Exynos 9 chip. However, this design is at odds with other recent leaks, and some we've encountered previously.

The latest Galaxy S8 price rumors reaffirm that the device may be quite expensive; however, it may not be as expensive as originally expected. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone also supports a 3,600mAh battery that is capable of giving 20 hours of talk time and 78 hours of standby time.

So, what do you guys think?

The Chinese variants of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to be powered by the Exynos 8895 system-on-chip (SoC), just like the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge that launched in the Far Eastern country a year ago were also fueled by the Samsung-made chipset. Given we might see the Galaxy S8 launch for a staggering £800 come April, stick with the S7 if you're looking to save your pennies.
