Samsung Galaxy S10 may arrive in five colors; fan favorites could return
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Ocean Blue

With the recent unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung moved towards offering a wider variety of colors in the hope of boosting both sales and interest in the smartphone. And with next year’s Galaxy S10 series shaping up to be the brand’s biggest launch in recent history, tipster Ice Universe now claims that Samsung is keen to replicate this strategy.

While the South Korean brand has announced a total of four Galaxy Note 9 variants so far, the company seemingly has five color candidates for the Galaxy S10 series. Surprisingly, though, only the black color is shared with the Galaxy Note 9. This means that the blue, copper and purple options don’t appear to be under consideration at this time. Instead, Samsung is said to be looking at reintroducing some old fan favorites that were seen on previous-generation models. These are said to be silver and pink, which were both last seen on the Galaxy S8 lineup, white, which was last available with the Galaxy S7 series, and green, which was a Galaxy S6 Edge option back in 2015.

With Samsung’s Galaxy S10 trio not expected to arrive until February at MWC, the number one manufacturer could easily cancel its plans entirely by then and look at a completely new set of colors. After all, as seen with Samsung’s most recent flagship, it appears the company’s list of color options isn’t set in stone until the very last minute – the brand unexpectedly scrapped the grey version of the Galaxy Note 9 just weeks ahead of its announcement. Alternatively, Samsung could choose to add certain Galaxy Note 9 colors to its candidates list if they perform better than originally expected. In any case, though, the fact that Samsung is looking at reintroducing some fan favorites this early on does suggest that it’s willing to take any necessary measures in order to make the launch a success.

Emerald Green is probably the most sought after color it seems.

Yes, and Burgundy Red! If they bring it back, I will upgrade my black S9+ to one of those colors

Makes sense to me... Under screen fingerprint sensor, triple camera, will probably have 4000mah battery, 7nm chip, 5g, new design, etc... Then I'll have the Note 10 the latter half of 2019...

If Samsung galaxy S10 Don't have at least 5000 mAh battery, it will have the same failure, as Samsung galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9. We Don't want Colors we want Super Battery with big memory, after all it is a flagship phone. Even phones with 200 Euros have better specs in batteries and memories than samsung flagships.

They do often have bigger batteries but I'm pretty sure I haven't seen a 200 euro phone with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM...

Lol you outsmarted him.

8 GB and 512 storage are useless. On the other hand 8 GB with 128 and 256 are the ok with super ok for Samsung flagships with competitive prices. If continue Samsung to have the same marketing policy, in one or two years, the cell phone department will apply for bankruptcy.

According to some people Samsung was done and was going to apply for bankruptcy since 2007 and yet they are still here.

and old cars are here, but nobody gives money to buy them.So Samsung must choose, if she want to have profits from cell phone department must change marketing policy. If not she may continue the same policy and have her phones for museums and decorating purposes without profits. The choise are hers.

Actually vintage cars have nice amount of demands and I have seen people paying big chunk of money for vintage cars.

Posts: 161; Member since: Jul 24, 2018

Yes, you are right, but this is profitable for the owner of the vintage car, and not for the company who builds it. The most of the companies who builded this vintage cars, they do not exist right now. This Is the future do you hope for Samsung?

I don’t know what future is holding up for Samsung and other companies as right now in the very “Present” Samsung is almost fine. And how are you claiming that Samsung will go bankrupt? Do you know what future is holding up?( I too don’t know) And I don’t get a fact that why the hell are you so salty over Samsung. What do you want? Just please tell us exactly. Even in PAs battery test the Note9 lasted 8h 56m which is fairly decent comparing with majority of the flagships and it’s predecessor. In your post#7 you clearly said that “we want Big battery and big memory” Right? When the author called you out for saying that there ain’t a single $200 phone with 8GB Ram & 512GB of storage you backtracked saying “512 GB memory is stupid”. Really? And the phone with 5000mAH battery are thicker compare to flagship phones. Heck even companies like Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo, Moto etc who make phone with 5000mAH battery don’t have that much capacity battery in their flagship phones considering all flagship phone going thinner and thinner because companies feel like thinner is better. Even if tomorrow Samsung launches S10 with 1TB internal storage, 12GB Ram, 4K screen, Quadruple camera, built in air conditioning, microwave, fan etc you will still be salty saying all these features are available in $200 phones.

Wow. And I thought MarvzIsFallen posted idiotic comments. How is the Note 9 a failure? And the 5000 mAh battery comment is just pure stupidity.

Best colour for glass is white. You do not see fingerprints nor scratches.
