Samsung Galaxy S9 is getting two new colours but only one will reach UK

Starting in May, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is getting a pair of new colours, Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold. The pair of colours joins the existing lineup of Midnight Black, Lilac Purple and Coral Blue handsets, but unfortunately the new Red colour isn’t set to reach the UK.

That’s right, for the time being the Burgundy Red handset will be available in just a pair of countries, with a release due in Korea and China from May. Meanwhile, the Sunrise Gold will be available in a wider group of territories from June — and it’s a group that includes the UK.

The new colour will be available to pre-order in the UK from June 22, and will begin shipping June 29 alongside the Titanium Grey version of the phone. Both the S9 and the S9+ are due to receive the new colour-scheme, which Samsung promises will bring “a stylistic touch of high fashion and urban interior design to a user’s mobile device.”

The Sunrise Gold colour-scheme is also set to be an EE exclusive in the country, while Titanium Grey will be exclusive to Carphone Warehouse.

The handsets themselves look pretty nice, but if we had to pick we’d probably go for the Burgundy Red version which looks striking without being too bright like Apple’s red iPhones.
