After weeks of rumors swirling, Samsung has announced the release of the latest color version of its Samsung Galaxy S8+ 64GB model, Rose Pink. Unfortunately, this pink smartphone is only having a limited release in select regions like Taiwan and South Korea, which started last June 30, for around $900 price (or around PhP 46,000 in the PH). Although there hasn’t been any official announcements yet, we’re all crossing our fingers that Samsung will have a wider release in the coming months and include the Philippines.
