Samsung is releasing a purple Galaxy S22 – here’s how to get it
It’ll be priced at $799 and available directly from Samsung, or through most major carriers in the US.
Samsung says that ‘Bora’ means ‘purple’ in Korean. That means the new Galaxy S22 color is literally ‘purple purple.’
That’s interesting, but it’s even more interesting when you consider that purple doesn’t really exist. See, purple is a non-spectral color, that is, it’s created in our brain by two colors of light interacting. Isn’t that awesome?
Additionally, you get the same three rear-facing cameras as the other color options, with a 12-megapixel ultrawide, a 50-megapixel wide, and a 10-megapixel telephoto.
It’s a great phone, by all accounts, and now it’s slightly sweeter because all you purple fans can buy one in your favorite color. But you’ll have to wait until August 10 to get the Bora Purple Samsung Galaxy S22.
On the other hand, if you’re waiting to see what Samsung announced at its Galaxy Unpacked event later in August, that’s understandably fair.
