Galaxy S9 and S9+ in Burgundy Red appear in real life photos. Looking hot!
Red seems to be the color of choice recently — last year, Apple released its first Product Red phones, updating the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus 6 months after their release and did so again with the red-hot iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Samsung launched Burgundy Red Galaxy 8 and S8+ midway through their lifecycle as well, and even a small manufacturer like OnePlus hopped on and launched a limited edition Lava Red OnePlus 5T.
This year, Samsung is jumping the gun it seems. Instead of launching Burgundy Red half a year after the initial Galaxy S9 unveiling, it's prepping up to sell the Burgundy Red Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ any moment now. Well, in China at least.
Thus far, we've only seen product renders from the official Samsung China web page — nothing too exciting. But, today, Twitter leakster Ice universe has dropped 4 real life photos of the new color. And while they may be a bit low-res, they certainly show how hot the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ look in their new dress!
However, we might not get to see this new color ourselves. Last year's Galaxy S8 and S8+ Burgundy Red editions were only available in select markets across Asia. We hope that Samsung would feel a bit more graceful this year around and launch it in Western markets as well, but there's no official word on that yet.
