Samsung's launching a Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red, and it looks amazing

In recent years, we've seen manufacturers get more and more adventurous when it comes to colors that phones are sold in. The Nextbit Robin debuted in a stunning white and mint combo, Google's Really Blue Pixel last year was a joy to look at, and HTC's still impressive Solar Red U11 just might be one of the most eye-catching handsets ever made.

We've seen Samsung adventure with new colors, with some of the most notable being Coral and Deep Sea Blue on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, respectively.

Just in time for the fall season, Samsung has announced a new color for the former of those two devices. It's called Burgundy Red, and it's easily one of Samsung's best color options yet.

The back, frame, and buttons of the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 feature a very bright and powerful red hue, and the overall aesthetic really is something special. "It's no Solar Red U11" as our own Hayato Huseman points out, but I don't care. I still think it looks great and I'd like to buy five of them right now.

If you live in Korea, you'll be able to purchase the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 starting on November 28. As for the rest of us, Samsung says this latest color of the phone will later be available in "select markets." There's, unfortunately, no clarification as to which other markets will be graced with this beauty, but this is still an encouraging sign nonetheless.
