Want to See the Galaxy S8 is Black, Grey, and Silver? Here You Go. (Updated: Purple and Backs Too!)

galaxy s8 plus pictures

Over the weekend, @evleaks shared new press renders of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in three colorways: black sky, orchid grey, and arctic silver. The pictures, outside of revealing some of the colors coming soon to a retailer near you, don’t show any other really new tidbits. But that isn’t shocking, since these phones are inching towards being the most leaked, now-almost-boring, we’re-sick-of-seeing-all-of-this-stuff-before-launch, devices in history.

Hey, how about some new side shots, though? Ooooh. 

Evan did drop potential pricing for not only the new Galaxy S8 line, but new accessories as well. This is news, especially for those worried about how nuts Samsung is about to go with off-contract S8 and S8+ prices.

Yep, they are going that nuts.

UPDATE: And now we have purple and a look at the phone’s back! (@evleaks)

    Down for a murdered out black version.

  • Jesse Torres

    Watch Verizon try and smash their branding on the chin. Like the turbo 2😕😟😡

  • mrjayviper

    problem with all Android makers is that colors are never available at launch in stores/carriers. In my country (and I’m guessing it’s not the only 1), only Apple has the colors available. Sure there will be shortage of the in-demand colors but inventory gets better

  • mcdonsco

    Kellen, i know Google indexes the title so sucks to change it, but the is instead of in is killing my OCD.

  • Harry Balzania

    Seriously, MEH……

    The s7 edge is a bitchin’ phone so paying $800+ just to have 1000fps video and a few other quirks on an almost visually identical phone is totally not worth it. This is the first year since 2008 that I don’t upgrade at a year or less.
    I’m seriously waiting for the Moto Z Force 2017 version. My only gripe with the s7 is the narrow screen! The s8 looks even worse.


  • Cliff Keene

    Can we change the “IS” to “IN”
    Sorry to nitpick just one of those things =D

  • Turb0wned

    People are so worried about the price here in the US…. Every year it’s the same thing. Price won’t be more than $900.

  • Xcalibur1011

    I’m going to sell my LG V20 for at least $400 to help knock the price down on the S8+. That price is Apple Crazy!!

  • illregal

    rather ugly.

  • Papergangsta25

    The grammar in this title……cringe!

  • Chris W

    The round screen corners don’t look good to me.

  • Charles Rogers

    I’m going to wait on the $1250 S9+.

  • disastrousrainbow

    I have mixed feelings about the front being all black no matter the color. On the one hand, I love that it obscures all the sensors. However, I’m not a fan of how much more visible fingerprints and dust particles are, especially when you’re outside or in direct sunlight. It just drives me up the wall. That’s why I love having white fronts or colors which mask the build up of dust and fingerprints. Alas…

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    All black fronts will be a nice change. Looks nice, just let’s get to the actual announcement to see what’s up with that software.

  • Tim Buchanan

    I’m confused. 3 fronts, representing 3 colors. But only 4 side shots?

  • steadymobb

    The idea of different colored screen protectors sounds cool – would have to see in person. That being said, a little disappointing all of the fronts will be black.

  • cdm283813

    I’m just not excited about this phone. Give me Note 8!!!

  • Armaced

    Needs more gross fingernail.

  • trevorsalienarms

    Droid Life: “pics of the S8 are soooo over, no one even cares anymore”

    Also Droid Life: “ooooh, more content for the site!”

    Just lol boys. Let’s not pretend this phone isn’t a big deal and highly anticipated by a lot of people.

    • Turb0wned

      Really it’s the only Android phone that is highly anticipated world wide outside of these phone geek sites. Just people hating on everything Samsung.

  • WCM3

    899€ = $965..LOL

  • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    i think it looks better than the s6 and s7’s. getting rid of the home button was a great decision. still am not a huge fan of the edge screens though.

    • James_Kernicky

      If they function like the Note 7’s edge did I’d be happy…but I won’t find out because I’m waiting on the Note 8.

  • Dave

    So uh….. where are all those super ugly and ginormous and very clearly noticeable cut outs that everyone was freaking out and complaining about?

    • Bobb

      weren’t those tempered glass protectors?

      • Dave

        I think so, but that didn’t stop people from still saying stuff like they were going to get this phone until they saw those. You know, the usual stuff. Just saying that now that we actually have (more) good looks at the phones, all that was for nothing. Again, as usual.

      • New_Guy


    • disastrousrainbow

      They’re still there, but word is the phone is going to come with a black front only to minimize the appearance of the sensors and that the colors floating around are merely screen protectors…

    • Kevna

      I can still see them and the picture isn’t the highest resolution. Definetley not as bad with a black bezel vs the other color leaks but when you have like 5 sensors they’re gonna be noticeable.

  • axis_power

    Was going to pick one up, but at that price they’ve convinced me to keep my s7.

    • litobirdy

      um, but it’s pretty much the same price as the s7

    • Dave

      Surely they’re going to miss your business. Whatever are they going to do? Because you have the iteration before this new one, you thought this would be cheaper or something?

    • axis_power

      Ooh people are spicy on Monday morning. Reports are $850 USD compared to the $700 i paid for the s7 and that included a 128GB sd and gearVR. Chiiiiiill

      • allies_power

        You paid $700 for the S7? You got ripped off bro. You can get it for like $400-500 now.

        • Howard Stern ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          upvote just on the name.

        • axis_power

          I got it on launch day. 😉

    • The Euro is very weak so manufacturers have to up prices, which they were hesitant to do, to cover margins and make profits in Europe. A direct conversion to dollars wouldn’t give an accurate price in the US (assuming you are living in the US).

  • King of Nynex

    $900 for a phone is quite expensive.

    • Dave

      $900 for a phone is more than you’d like to spend.* You have and use your phone probably more than most anything else you own. You use it more than your TV and I guess depending on how new and big your tv is, the phone is cheaper than that.

      • Bobb

        You can get a Samsung 50 inch 4k for around $600…
        so yeah, $900 for a phone is indeed quite expensive

        • Tyler Durden

          Well you can get a bottom level 4K at that price. But anything worth it is $1500+. That’s if you want both HDR standards. And OLED.

          • Bobb

            bottom level 4k TV’s go for $200-$300 for a 50 inch it seems

          • Tyler Durden

            Yes anything below $999 is bottom level. Meaning most are 8bit HDR which is “simulated” HDR. Some are 10bit but not wide color gamut. Some don’t even have HDR. Most are IPS which is worse for HDR. Anyways, with HDMI 2.1 announced, anybody looking to spend money is better off waiting.

          • Bobb

            10k res here we come!!!!!

          • Michael Bassett

            True, most consumers know nothing. I get, my *blank* has a 95 curved screen 4K TV they got on black friday for $400!, all the time. When ask what brand its “westinghouse” and does it have HDR? 10bit? WCG? “whats that?” I tell you what, there is a 65 inch Samsung KS8000 for $1350 that’s calling my name but I then need to get a PS4 Pro along with it, I think i can wait.

          • Tyler Durden

            Yeah definitely better off waiting because that model, while nice and popular, lacks Dolby Vision unfortunately.

          • Bobb

            but most consumers don’t care about all that. They buy it on sale, in their living room, turn it on and go about there day

        • litobirdy

          but what gets used WAYYYYYYY more?
          i mean for some people your phone IS your life. everything you do is on there. we depend on much on phones, Yes it is expensive I’ll totally admit that, but in the long run. it’s probably worth it for the 2 years? if you stay with the phoen 2 years which every yera that goes by seems less and less likely lol

          • bobb

            Not disagreeing, but you can also get a phone like OPO 3 for half the price without sacrificing anything in real world performance etc

          • JoshuaKramer

            Yup, and Samsung has that covered too. You can get an S7 with freebies and deals for cheaper then the new OPO. This S8 isn’t being marketed to someone looking for a $400-500 phone.

          • Bobb

            Yeah?..where? (serious question, i’d buy a cheaper s7)

          • JoshuaKramer

            Depends, where do you live? You can get a unlocked version directly from Samsung website for $550. Depending on your carrier and where you live I seen it go lower then $500. Also, a lot of good deals going around that comes with freebies making it even more bang for buck.

        • T4rd

          Miniaturization costs a lot. I’m betting the markup on that TV from manufacturing cost to retail is much more (percentage wise) than it is on these phones, not even taking into account R&D costs.

    • trevorsalienarms

      Isn’t that about what a Pixel cost anyway?

      At least for 9 hundy, I know it’s gonna be a cool, engaging piece of tech.

      Until it possibly spontaneously combusts, that is.
