The Samsung Galaxy S8 has received a new color scheme. Christened the Samsung Galaxy S8, the new color is Burgundy Red and it was launched earlier this month, as we had reported then. However, at that time, there had been no mention of when the new device would launch. Well, we now know that the Burgundy Red variant will be made available in South Korea from today i.e 28 November.
The Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung’s flagship offering this year, now has six color options: apart from Burgundy Red, we have Rose Pink, Arctic Silver, and Coral Blue, as well as Orchid Gray and Midnight Black.
Given that the device is available, for now, only in the home country of Korea, we expect that the device will soon launch elsewhere in the country. Exactly when that will be is something that we cannot confirm now.
Samsung had recently released an official ad for its new color variant. The ad was released on the Samsung Mobile Korea YouTube channel. Featuring bright autumn themes, the new Burgundy Red variant of the Galaxy S8 is believed to have been launched in commemoration of the onset of autumn. Besides the beautifully rich red color on the rear, the other specs and features are expected to stay the same.
