Orchid Grey Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are now available in India


Last updated: July 7th, 2017 at 10:32 UTC+02:00

We’re not sure when Samsung made it available, but you can now purchase the Orchid Grey color variant of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India. This is the standard model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage we’re talking about. The 6GB RAM variant (with 128GB inbuilt storage) is still available only in Midnight Black and probably won’t ever get other color options, given how its notably higher price will attract less sales. With the Orchid Grey option, the Galaxy S8+ is available in four colors in India, while the Galaxy S8 is available in three.

The Orchid Grey versions are only available through Samsung’s official website, where Samsung is also offering a few bonuses. There’s a free wireless charger with each order, HDFC bank credit and debit card owners get a Rs. 3,000 cashback, and subscribers of network operator Jio get double the data on its internet plans. Pricing for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ remains the same – the former is available for Rs. 57,900, while the latter costs Rs. 64,900. Our review can tell you if Samsung’s new flagships are worth those price tags.

It’s disappointing to see Samsung continuing to delay the launch of particular color options for its devices, although it’s also good to see the company making more options available in different markets, something it has failed at miserably in the past. If you still haven’t gotten your hands on the Galaxy S8 or S8+ but are now interested thanks to the arrival of the Orchid Grey option, go ahead and visit Samsung’s website to place an order. You can also buy the phones from Flipkart (Galaxy S8 | Galaxy S8+), although the retailer doesn’t have every color available.

Note: If Samsung’s official site gives you a ‘Forbidden’ error, try opening it in an incognito/private window, or try using another browser.
