It’s been a good couple of hours since we saw some leaks of the Galaxy S8, but when it’s Evan Blass doing the leaking we sit up and take notice.
Mr Blass has been at it again, this time leaking renders of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in Black Sky, Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver colour options. The leak shows only front and sides for the S8 and only the front for the S8 Plus, but at this stage, it’s a good leak. So, here they are:
Evan has also kindly released pricing details – European pricing anyway – for the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, a new Gear VR headset, new Gear 360 camera and the desktop dock (DeX) that will turn the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus into a desktop machine when connected to a monitor.
Converted, those prices look like this in Australian dollars:
- S8 – 799€ – $1117.16AUD
- S8+ – 899€ – $1256.98AUD
- DeX – 150€ – $209.73AUD
- GearVR – 129€ – $180.37AUD
- Gear360 – 229€ – $320.19AUD
Of course these prices are before any of the so-called ‘Australia Tax’ is added, meaning we should expect pricing similar to the launch price of the Galaxy S7 here in Australia.
There will surely be more leaks of the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, but with only a little over a week until the official launch there’s surely not much left to find out.
