Some pictures of the flagship in jaw-dropping Burgundy Red were leaked online last week making us all very excited about picking one up in this incredible hue. They join the current lineup of Midnight Black, Titanium Gray, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple colour options. You're out of luck if you have fallen in love with Burgundy Red because Samsung has confirmed that this option will only be available for customers in South Korea and China later this month. Samsung says that additional market availability will follow after that, but it seems that the Red color will, again, be limited to Eastern markets only. Though 1 million in sales in South Korea is impressive, it's worth noting that it took the S9 a tad longer to reach that mark relative to last year's Galaxy S8. While the Burgundy Red variant will only be hitting the Korean and Chinese markets later this month, the Sunrise Gold variant will be coming to Australia, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam in June.
The Sunrise Gold is Samsung's first device to sport a satin glass finish, giving the handset what Samsung calls a "glow" and "glimmer". Meanwhile, the Burgundy Red edition comes with a deep red paint job that comes with a restrained gloss for added density.
