Samsung has recently announced that a new Rose Pink version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will be released ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch. However, the smartphone would only be made available for users in Taiwan only.

According to Gadgets NDTV, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Rose Pink version still has the same specs of the renowned flagship device. The company was also seen to rename the previous Coral Blue, Maple Gold and Orchid Grey of the devices in Taiwan to Ice Lake Blue, Smoked Purple Grey, and Quicksand Gold instead.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Rose Pink version is then mentioned to still sport the same 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Infinity Display with 2960 x 1440 pixel resolution. The device still has the same 4GB RAM powered by 1.9GHz octa-core Exynos 8895 processor. The 12-megapixel primary rear camera and 8-megapixel camera features remain as well alongside its 3500mAh non-removable battery.

Aside from the Rose Pink version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, the South Korean based company was said to already release some unique colors of their smartphones previously as well. Among those released were the Berry Pink Galaxy Note, Pink Galaxy S III, Pink Samsung Galaxy S5 along with the Pink Gold Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

Speaking of Samsung S8 Plus, WCCF Tech reported that a Samsung S8 Active was spotted at GFXBench, a benchmarking site. The smartphone was seen under the code name of SM-G892A. Yet, it will be quite not similar to the first variants as it is rumored to change its Gorilla Glass 5 to a plastic display instead. It is also stated to minimize its screen display to 5.4 inches only and put small bezels at the sides.

Nonetheless, confirmation, pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active wasn’t disclosed but was just leaked. Rest assured, the Rose Pink version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is already available in Taiwan for the price of TW 27,900 which is said to cost to an estimated tag of $906 in the US.
