Check out the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 in real life photos – stunning

At the start of this month, we learned that Samsung is prepping to launch a Burgundy Red Galaxy S8. Later, it became clear that the phone would be available in South Korea on the 28th of November (today) and that it may also gradually roll out to other markets!

So far, we've seen a promotional video and renders of the phone that look really, really hot. But a lucky person in South Korea has now shared a couple of real-life photos with their brand-new Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red. And you know what? It's still gorgeous.

The phone on the photos is not a searing, hot red that we've seen in the promo materials, but, of course, lighting and camera probably play a part in that. However, its deeply reflective back shows through well enough and that is definitely not a boring phone to look at. On the front, we have black bezels, which really go well with the red (*ahem*, Apple).

S8 owners, what do you think? If this Galaxy S8 becomes available in your area, would you sell your current one to get it?
