Samsung Galaxy S8 gets a gorgeous autumnal hue — but you can’t buy it yet

Samsung has announced a new colour variant for it’s Galaxy S8 smartphone and it might be the sexiest yet.

The new Burgundy Red edition joins the pack, but unfortunately it’s only available in South Korea at the moment.

Samsung’s new colour is revealed in an autumn-themed YouTube commercial, which you can see below (via Android Central).

Currently, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are available Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue and Maple Gold.

However, this might be the best-looking edition of the phone yet.

Burgundy Red

Samsung often rolls out new colour options mid-way through the annual cycle in order to freshen up its flagship handsets, post-iPhone launch.

However, it’s unclear whether the Burgundy Red edition will ever make it to UK shores.

The new colour is reminiscent of the Solar Red version of the HTC U11 smartphone rolled out earlier this year.

However, while we can debate their respective looks, there’s no doubting Samsung has the edge when it comes to popularity.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have just been jointly crowned Phone of the Year at the 2017 TrustedReviews Awards.

Our verdict reads: “The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a new beginning for flagship phones. It’s a gorgeous sliver of tech that utilises its power for extending the experience beyond the 5.8-inch display, but manages to still be a phone that’s easy to use.”
