Don’t be so excited though, you should know it’s just a new version of the Galaxy S8. And yes, you should also probably know that you can’t actually buy one.

Well, that’s not quite correct. The Rose Pink Galaxy S8+ comes with a special story that only Samsung could concoct. It said these words:

Inspired by nature, the new hue envelops the device, creating a sense of unity and fluidity between the glass and metal of the phone’s body,” Samsung wrote in its short announcement, making Rose Pink sound like the color to get. All of the other Galaxy S8 colors should be jealous right now.

“The Rose Pink color itself is simultaneously sophisticated and modern, adding to the overall aesthetics of the device, intensifying the depth of its design,” Samsung said.
