Samsung announces two new colors for the Galaxy S9... in select markets

We've already seen some reports and teases for a new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ color — the Burgundy Red. Some real-life photos even popped up to show us how hot the model looks in the new clothes. But it turns out Samsung was not prepping one, but two new colors for the flagship!

So, here we have Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+!


This sure is a nice surprise, given that manufacturers will usually introduce a fresh new color about half a year after a device's initial launch. The Galaxy S9 is about two months old now and customers will already have more colors to pick from and the new ones sure are killer!

Now, for the bad news. The Burgundy Red Galaxy S9 will be available in China and South Korea this month. Sunrise Gold will hit store shelves in June in select markets across Europe, Asutralia, and Asia — Australia, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam. Samsung says that additional market availability will follow after that, but it seems that the Red color will, again, be limited to Eastern markets only.

This expands the current roster of Midnight Black, Titanium Gray, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. Would you say they are nice additions to the deck?

Dear Samsung, I am from the Philippines and for the past years, you only offer black and gold colors and I grew tired of it. Give us the white and industrial titanium gray Samsung S9 and I will buy your phone.

Apple is no better. The company being sued for a iPhone 6S/iPad Mini causing a fire and bringing down EgyptAir flight 804, killing 66 people doesn't look good compared to some batteries exploding and causing burns.

To be honest it's usually the 6S is the one that I hear explodes the most.

I guess if maybe I collected them. As a user, it seems pointless when it's same hardware and that much closer to launch of next year's phones. If it's not ready around actual launch of that edition of product, it's a late show repeat. Just my thoughts I guess.

Just release all colors to all markets at the same time.

These colors are killer, i especially think the gold color is really cool, because of how unique it is, and how well it compliments the black portions of the device.
