Pretty in red: the Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red looks amazing, but you probably can't buy it

Last year, we saw the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge get the Blue Coral skin, after the Note 7 that introduced it happened to go down in flames. Then, we saw both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge be updated with a full-black color, presumably in response to Apple's Jet Black. Well, you didn't think that Sammy won't be updating the color choices of its Galaxy S8 jewel, did you?

Posted on the Samsung Mobile Korea YouTube channel, we have a new ad, which introduces the new Burgundy Red Galaxy S8. Apparently made to celebrate the colors of autumn, the phone has a nice dark shade of red, with a saturated look and nice bling, due to the glass back. OK, can't do this anymore — it's hot, guys, it looks awesome!

The bad news? It's exclusive to South Korea... At least for now. Earlier this year, we did see the "exclusive" Rose Pink Galaxy S8 slowly make its way to western markets... So, maybe there's a miniscule amount of hope for the Burgundy Red to become a bit more widely available?

I want an Emerald green just like the S6 edge but that burgundy red is also beautiful.

This will forever piss me off with android devices..I want all the damn colours and storage configurations available asap. Can you imagine how much better the Note8 would sell if all the colours and heck, if the 128GB model were available in the US and Europe?

What I don’t get about some android users is that they brag about expandable storage because they could just keep everything on a sd card and cried when Samsung took it away with the S6 but at the same time complain about makers not adding more storage.

Actually, I am guessing the opposite. Black would be out of stock and there would be piles of the least popular colour collecting dust in the corner of the warehouse. Samsung doesn’t have the sheep power to carry the obscure colours without risk of it not moving. Only Apple has the sheep power.

Like seriously these writers are something else! I'm sure the iPhone isn't the first phone to be sprayed red..! But keep talking about how Samsung following iPhone because everyone follows, whether by copying or on Instagram/Twitter we all do a little following. Anyways, big up to Samsung for stiffening the competition and big up to Apple for thinking outside the box.. Y'all are happy making all the doe while I'm here still
