Other markets including Europe and even Mexico will see these colors "soon".
There is no surprise in this move, however, as past year, the Samsung Galaxy S8 also wore burgundy red. Other markets will get it as well after that. If we had to pick, we'd go for the Burgundy Red version, which looks striking without being too bright like Apple's red iPhones.
Burgundy Red will be available in Korea and China from May.
Samsung's Galaxy S9 series is said to have significantly better download speeds thanks to its built-in CAT 18 LTE modem, which is able to deliver download speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps, without factoring network limitations. At the time, Samsung admitted that it chose to introduce the new color option in the country, so it could revitalize its struggling performance there. It has restrained gloss for added density and its appearance is a mixture of contemporary and traditional.
The Sunrise Gold is Samsung's first device to sport a satin glass finish, giving the handset what Samsung calls a "glow" and "glimmer". The color option is said to exude the feeling of both vibrancy and calm. It has developed this finish to appeal to all users by fusing a touch of high fashion with urban interior design.
Back when Samsung released the Galaxy S9, there were only four colours available in total - only three of which were available here in the UK.
