Could purple be the new “in” color for smartphones?
Samsung appears to think so. Prominent leaker of smartphone-related news Evan Blass shared what appear to be press photos of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ in a new lilac purple color.
Besides the new color, the new images also give us a really good look at the device’s all new vertical layout of the camera and fingerprint sensor.
Blass leaked the photos of the two devices’ front sides a few weeks ago, but this is the first time we’ve seen the lilac purple color.
The biggest difference between these two phones is apparent from the images: Besides being quite a bit bigger, the Galaxy S9+ has two cameras on the back, while the S9 only has one.
Previous rumors indicate that the two phones will both run on the new Snapdragon 845 chip, 64GB of storage (further expandable via microSD cards), and headphone jack. The S9+ might come with 6GB of RAM while the S9 will probably only have 4GB.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are scheduled to be officially unveiled on Feb. 25, ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mashable will be there to bring you the news on new Samsung gadgets.
