A new Galaxy S8 color is making the trip from South Korea and the UK to American shores. Coral Blue handsets will be available exclusively from Best Buy and Samsung's website starting July 21.

Black and gray are making way for a brighter color scheme this Friday. Coral Blue is the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus finish, and after gaining popularity overseas it is finally coming to the US.

This new variant has been announced on the Samsung Newsroom site and will be available in retail stores exclusively from Best Buy, and online from BestBuy.com and Samsung's own web store. Best Buy physical locations will sell Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T carrier-specific models (T-Mobile apparently was not invited to the party) of the new handset, while the unlocked versions will be sold only online.

Best Buy is offering a limited-time promotion to early adopters of the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Anyone who buys one can get up to $400 back upon purchasing or activating their new phone. Exactly how one qualifies for such a big rebate isn't mentioned in the post—a link to the phone's Best Buy listing is the only information provided. 

The addition of Coral Blue to the Galaxy S8 color range brings the total of available variants to four. The other three colors are Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, and Orchid Grey.
