“The new, luxurious hue accentuates the elegance of the Galaxy S8’s ergonomic glass and metal form, creating a seamless and refined aesthetic that will resonate with a wide range of tastes,” says Samsung in the newsroom post.
Brushing up the spec-sheet, the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch QuadHD+ Infinity Display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and 570 ppi pixel density. It is powered by an octa-core Exynos 8895 processor along with 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage and an expanded storage of at least 256GB, and comes running on Android 7.0 Nougat backed by a 3000mAh battery.
