Not long after introducing the Coral and Deepsea Blue color options for the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, Samsung unleashes a Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 that goes quite well with the colors of the season. Sadly, it can only be acquired in South Korea for now.

Samsung's latest Galaxy S flagships are very popular these days, but the list of color options available seems to be missing something. As it usually happens, those looking to stand out of the crowd can grab one of the various custom gold-plated Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, but they do not come cheap. Fortunately, Samsung has just decided to refresh the Galaxy S8 lineup with a Burgundy Red edition that looks very good and has the same price as its siblings in Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, or Orchid Gray.

In addition to the three color options mentioned above that were available at launch in all markets, Samsung also introduced a Coral Blue variant after a while. In the US, this color option made its debut exclusively via Best Buy and Samsung.com in late July. On the other hand, the Note 8 received the Deepsea Blue color option just a few days ago, so now the Maple Gold variant is the last one available in other markets, but still missing in the US.

Although the Solar Red HTC U11 remains one of the best-looking flagships to match with the season's colors, the video below shows that the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 is also quite a work of art. Obviously, all the innards of this flagship remain the same, but its back, frame, and buttons are painted using a bright red hue that makes any non-transparent protective case a no-go.

The main problem of the new Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 is, unfortunately, its availability. For now, it can only be found in South Korea, but we guess it will reach the US market sooner or later as well.

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.
