Last June, Samsung announced Rose Pink color options for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but it was initially available exclusively in South Korea and Taiwan, with the promise that it would make its way over to Europe later in 2017. Well, Samsung missed the deadline by a hair (or two), but the rose-colored S8 and S8+ are finally launching in Europe albeit only in the UK at the time being.
The new color variation, which Samsung describes as “inspired by nature,” “sophisticated and modern,” joins the existing color lineup of Arctic Silver, Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Orchid Gray. The rose-colored versions of the S8 and S8+ will be available only through EE of Carphone Warehouse in the UK, as these two retailers have exclusivity deals with Samsung, Express UK reports.
Dutch retailer Besimpel has also confirmed that it will start selling the Rose Pink S8 and S8+, although there’s no information yet as to when it will hit store shelves in the Netherlands. The phones sold by Besimpel won’t be imports from Asia, but rather handsets intended for the European t:market, the retailer confirmed. The rosy S8s will start at €599 in the Netherlands, when available, which roughly translates to about $720.
