Galaxy S10 color options may give Huawei's gradients a run for their money

Galaxy S10 color options may give Huawei's gradients a run for their money
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Ocean Blue

Following the release of a gradient P20 Pro variant back in March, it’s fair to say that Huawei has earned itself quite a bit of praise. In fact, the new option proved to be so popular that the brand then followed up with two newer ones just a few weeks back.

Samsung, on the other hand, has stuck to tradition this year by launching its usual color options. Last month, though, reports emerged claiming that the company would shake things up next year with the release of the Galaxy S10. Specifically, Samsung was reportedly planning five new colors. And now, according to tipster Ice Universe, it seems the South Korean giant may have some other tricks up its sleeves that will rival Huawei’s gradient options.

At this moment in time, it’s unclear if this simply means more gradient options similar to the one seen recently in China or something entirely different. However, the most likely scenario involves Samsung finding a new unique way to introduce a bit of color to its smartphones without blatantly copying Huawei. After all, according to the tipster, the Galaxy S10’s color scheme will be significantly “more beautiful” than the options available on Huawei smartphones. On a separate note also related to colors, fan-favorite Emerald Green looks more likely than ever to make a comeback next year. Last month, this color was among Samsung’s release candidates, and today the color’s inclusion was once again reiterated by the tipster.

All things considered, Samsung certainly appears to be pulling out all the tops in order to make the Galaxy S10 success. But if new reports are accurate, the brand may have suffered a slight setback recently that could force it to skip the in-display fingerprint scanners once again.

Skipping the S10, but big brother is a must. They are true large screen devices, not pretend.

I've been #notegang ever since the Note 3. I'm not knocking the S models but for me they're just a preview of what will be bigger & better on the Note.

Mos def, but they do deliver an actual large screen device experience, not a pretend one. I'm only rocking Notes from here on out, until Apple gives me a reason to buy another iPhone...I'll keep my X.

Samsung has always released different colored devices. Some of them don't always make it over to the US, but they have been doing well before Huawei was. Besides the update schedule, I have no problems with the S9+ although the Note 9 looks good. Just not $1K good.

If it doesn't have an in-display fingerprint scanner, it's an automatic no-buy for me. Hope the rumor is false.
