Samsung launches red, gold Galaxy S9 smartphones in South Korea

Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red Galaxy S9 and S9

But it turns out Samsung was not prepping one, but two new colors for the flagship! However, earlier it was only compatible with a few smartphones.

Just like in years past, once Galaxy smartphone sales begin to dip, Samsung likes to introduce new color options that might entice new customers into purchasing its hardware.

The Burgundy Red edition will be available in Korea and China starting in May. The version is expected to debut in June across stores in UAE, Vietnam, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Hong Kong, Germany, Chile, Korea and Australia.

With the latest announcement, the Galaxy S9 lineup offers users six different options in colour palettes including Lilac Purple, Titanium Gray, Coral Blue, Midnight Black, Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red.

On the other hand, those looking for a "contemporary and traditional" feel should probably go for the Burgundy Red color which Samsung says - quite hilariously - is "one of the deepest reds available". No words on USA availability, alas, although the "satin gloss finish" is supposed to be "coming soon" to unnamed "additional markets".

Coming to the ARCore support, Google's augmented reality developer platform, was previously available only on Pixel and Nexus handsets and select smartphones from manufacturers like Asus, LG, Huawei, Moto, and Sony.
