Carphone Warehouse now accepting pre-orders for the Coral Blue Galaxy S8

The Coral Blue color variant of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ can now be pre-ordered exclusively from Carphone Warehouse in the United Kingdom. The former is priced at £689, while the latter carries a price tag of £779.

As you’d expect, the Coral Blue Galaxy S8 is identical to the regular Midnight Black model, packing a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 8895 Octa/Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ review: Samsung brings us the future, but it’s not perfect yet

Obviously, the same applies to the Galaxy S8+, which features almost identical internals to its smaller sibling, with the main differences being it has a slightly larger 6.2-inch screen and a 3,500mAh cell.

This news comes less than a week after British 4G carrier EE started accepting reservations for the Arctic Silver version of both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the region.

Here’s what Connor Pierce, Samsung Vice President, IT & Mobile said at the time:

We’re delighted to be partnering with EE to exclusively offer their customers the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Artic Silver. The Artic Silver edition has a modern and understated look and perfectly complements the Infinity Display screen. I hope EE customers like it as much as we do.
