Samsung has officially announced a new color variant for the Galaxy S8 and it is Burgundy Red. The striking and bold new color will be available in the company's home market Korea starting from today. Later, it will be rolled out to select global markets.
This new bold hue emphasizes the elegance of the ergonomic design of the Galaxy S8 made of metal and glass. It adds to the seamless and refined looks of the smartphone and makes it suitable for people who prefer a range of choices. It accentuates the bezel-less and sleek design of the smartphone that already features cutting-edge technologies that will give an enhanced user experience.
