The newest Samsung Galaxy S8 model is the prettiest yet, but you can’t buy it

Samsung has revealed another color variant for its Galaxy S8+ smartphone.

The Rose Pink Galaxy S8+ has been announced for Taiwan, going on sale for a limited time next month.

While there’s no guarantee it’ll become available in other territories, it seems likely Samsung won’t restrict it to Taiwan.

Samsung did make a ‘Pink Gold’ Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge available last year, so there’s hope.

In the meantime, Brits can choose from Midnight Black and Orchid Grey, with a Coral Blue edition becoming available this month.

Other regionally available colors include Maple Gold and Arctic Silver.

Samsung often introduces new colours and editions to reignite interest in a flagship after the initial wave of sales dies down.

Elsewhere, of course, the model is exactly like its counterparts, featuring the wondrous infinity display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 processor, 4GB of RAM and 12-megapixel rear camera.

In our review earlier this spring we gave the phone an ultra rare 10/10 score.

Mobile editor Max Parker called it “a new beginning for flagship phones,” saying it “genuinely feels like an upgrade from any other phone I’ve used in a long time.”

He added that the Galaxy S8 is “easily the best phone around right now” and that the phone “feels like the future.”
