So according to WinFuture.de writer from Twitter, Samsung is planning to add two new colours - Platinum and Rose Gold for the Samsung Gear S2 Classic version. Whether if it's real or not, it actually seems like a good idea since Rose Gold is becoming a very popular colour.

The Samsung Gear S2 is inching closer to us on 27 November so lets take a first look at what it can do. The Gear S2 truly comes in two variants – the modern look and classic.
