Galaxy S8 colors and pricing for Italy revealed

We’ve seen pricing for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ leak for Europe, at €799 and €899, but Italy will see prices slightly higher than these. According to an independent source, Italian buyers will pay €829 and €929 for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ respectively, which is €30 more than the Europe pricing Evan Blass provided a few days ago. 

As for the colors of the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8+, the same source says that the Galaxy S8 will come in Arctic Silver, Black Sky, and Purple Violet colors, with the Galaxy S8+ offering the same three color options. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ model numbers SM-G950 and SM-G955 are expected. The Arctic Silver and Black Sky were revealed along with the new Orchid Gray option, but Samsung looks to make the Orchid Gray regional instead of worldwide.

We’ve wondered about the Purple Violet color and its worldwide availability since its photo poses, but the Italian market leaves us wondering if Samsung will release this or maintain its exclusivity in a few markets. This news answers the question for Italy, but as for other markets, not so much. It could have the same restricted fate as the Orchid Gray color option. The press shot showcasing a Gold Galaxy S8 is still a question mark, too.

Italy customers, what do you think of these prices?

Its interesring to see in the videos though the phones seem to have a white faceplate. Whereas according to leaks, it will only retail with black front? I’d not buy a black or grey version. Rather a white/gold/blue model.

Updates will be late and still will be abandoned after two years. You must be mad to pay that kind of money.

It’s a hard price to pay for something that will practically be given away as a “two for one” special as few as three months after it is released. But there will always be people who want to have it *first*. Samsung is just testing the waters to see how much they can charge before people stop buying their products, and I think that based on what they are offering, they can probably continue to charge more and more without really being hurt too badly. Just look at how many people were ready to pay $900 for the Note7, and… Read more »
