While we have a pretty good idea about what the Galaxy S8 will look like thanks to several leaks ahead of its March 29th unveiling, the latest photo to appear on Weibo appears to show off a gold variant of Samsung’s newest device.

There have been some interesting rumors surrounding the color of the upcoming Galaxy S8. Last week a noted leaker stated that in addition to black and silver, we could see the phone available in a violet color. This wouldn’t be the first time that Samsung has released a violet-colored device, as the Galaxy S4 also featured a color called Purple Mirage.

That particular rumor didn’t mention a gold version of the phone, so it’s interesting to see this color turn up.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs

  • Dual-curved AMOLED display
