Although there is little doubt about the fact that Samsung will make this color option available for the entire world in the coming months, the Ice Blue Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will only launch in China. Fortunately, those who just want a blue contemporary Galaxy S flagship can already find the Coral Blue flavor in most markets.

If you like blue, then you can go ahead and pick a Coral Blue Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ in most markets across the world. However, if you want your flagship to feature a lighter blue finish that reminds you of winter and ice, you should go to China and grab the new Ice Blue variants of the aforementioned flagships, because the availability of this color option in other areas has not been announced yet. 

In addition to the Coral Blue and Ice Blue coatings mentioned above, both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are also available in attractive colors such as Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red. Those who don't want to stand out can also go with the more common Midnight Black or Titanium Gray, but there is also a Lilac Purple color choice. Obviously, the availability of these colors depends on the carrier and market/retailer.

Would you like to find the Ice Blue Galaxy S9/S9+ in your country before the end of the year? Is there any other shade of blue you would like your flagship to wear? I am for Navy Blue in most cases, but there should be always some room left for new things in life.

If you were wondering, the Ice Blue Samsung Galaxy S9 retails for the equivalent of US$792 in China, while the Galaxy S9+ can be acquired for roughly US$935. In both cases, we are talking about the 128 GB models that come bundled with a wireless charger.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
