[Poll] You need to read this before you decide what color your Galaxy S8 is going to be


Last updated: April 17th, 2020 at 12:16 UTC+02:00

Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in several markets across the globe. It’s going to release the new flagship on April 21 (and on April 28th in Europe). If you’re planning to buy one there’s a big decision that you need to make. You need to decide which color you’re going to opt for.

Customers in the United States can choose from Orchid Gray, Midnight Black and Arctic Silver colors. In other markets they will also have options that include Maple Gold and Coral Blue.

No matter what color you choose, the handset is going to look the same from the front because of the very good decision that Samsung made to use a black front on every color variant of the Galaxy S8. The black front does a great job of hiding the array of sensors on the front and focusing your attention on the almost bezel-less and absolutely gorgeous Infinity Display.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ In Midnight Black


It goes without saying that this is the color that most customers will likely opt for. Black is the most sought after of colors when it comes to premium smartphones, and Samsung’s Midnight Black color is rich and deep which makes it look really nice and premium. The frame will be black as well which will only add to the overall premium and sleek look of the handset.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Orchid Gray


You should consider this color variant if you’re in the mood to try something new. Many of us have owned a black handset at some point in our lives so it’s good to change it up sometimes. It’s a nice shade of gray that will cater to both gentlemen and ladies as it hits a sweet spot. It’s much better than the conventional gaudy gold color option which Samsung has wisely decided not to offer with its new flagship.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Arctic Silver


Gone are the days of pure white smartphones. You don’t get such simple color options anymore. If you’re looking for something like that then opt for the Arctic Silver color variant. The silver color itself is quite strong and looks very stylish, although it also shoots off reflections happily which many might find distracting at times.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Coral Blue


Samsung’s Coral Blue color proved to be a hit with the Galaxy Note 7 last year, so much so that it decided to launch this color option for the Galaxy S7 edge as well. The company is predictably offering it with the new flagship and it looks just as nice, if not better, than it did on its predecessor. This will be one of the safest color choices for the Galaxy S8, especially for those looking for a color not commonly seen on smartphones yet.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Maple Gold


This is not your average gaudy gold hue. It’s a more subdued shade of gold. Samsung had to offer this color option as gold tends to perform particularly well in markets across Asia. It might be a bold choice for someone who hasn’t carried a gold smartphone before but at least its understated appearance works in its favor.

No matter which color option you choose, you’ll want to protect your Galaxy S8 inside a case, given the fact that its metal and glass construction will be prone to scuffs, bumps, and scratches easily. So don’t forget to check out our list of the best cases for the Galaxy S8.
