There's a fiery "Velvet Red" color version of the Galaxy Note 4, good luck getting it

There's a fiery
At the moment, the Galaxy Note 4 powerhouse is available in four different color versions - these are "Charcoal Black", "Frost White", “Blossom Pink”, and "Bronze Gold". You already told us that the black variation of the phablet is your favorite, though by a relatively small margin, with the white and gold versions trailing behind, and naturally, the pink color option at the bottom of the list. 

Well, those still waiting for an additional color option can now rest at long last. If you have been devoted backer of the "red ones go faster" proverb, then you'd be happy to know that there's a special fiery red version of Samsung's power-laden phablet, just in time for the Winter Holidays. Dubbed "Velvet Red", this color option is unfortunately a South Korea-only deal - it's exclusive to those local residents willing to get a brand new Galaxy Note 4 from SK Telecom, one of the larger South Korean carriers. It seems that the latter also offers exclusive red versions of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and the Galaxy W.

As usual with such region-exclusive handset editions, there's no word if a similar red version of the Galaxy Note 4 will eventually become globally available for all potential adopters of the S Pen-knight. Odds are that it will hardly land in other country except for South Korea, but a man can dream, right?

Yeah, it does, especially in real life. Very handsome. These red ones look like cancer though.

But at least it's still the best big smartphone you can buy. I mean, heck, the iPhone 6+ is even uglier, and it's a distant second.

I agree fully here. I think the note 4 may be the overall best phone out

I would want it a more vibrant red, something more punchy. I have this amazing phone in black but long for a better color option.

What I don't understand is why the carriers in the US don't get a matching color. ATT Should have Blue that is for them only as a 3rd color option. Sprint gets Black & gold. T-Mobile gets Magenta/Fushia/Hot Pink Verizon gets Ferrari Red/Fire Engine Red. I mean its just plastic, very easy to get the colors. This in addition to the standard black and white. Anyways. that red looks ok. I didn't like the black because its not black, its a dark grey. In the dark its looks awesome with the fancy wallpapers. But every Note I've had has been white. I wanted black, but I want true black. The black has the softer back cover, I don't undetsnad why the covers on the back is not equally as soft for the other colors.

I always wanted a red phone. It seems the red ones are always hard to get.
