Samsung China has just announced a new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus color option, Red. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were originally announced in Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, and Titanium Gray color variants, and their availability is still market dependent, well, this new red-colored Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus variants will become available in China really soon, though there’s still no word if those variants will land in any other markets, even though they probably will.
This new Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus color variant is actually somewhat similar to the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8, and it’s quite surprising that the company opted to announce a new color variant of its two flagships so soon. The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus were introduced back in February, and have been available for purchase since March, Samsung usually waits for about half a year (post-launch) in order to announce new color options.
