Samsung has gamely decided to offer a new color option beyond the current black, silver, and gray versions of its latest flagship devices -- the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. Indeed, the world’s biggest seller of smartphones is launching a coral blue edition of the Galaxy S8 this coming July 21st.
On top of the introduction of a new color option, Samsung and Best Buy are also bringing generous discounts to the coral blue Galaxy S8 devices, as well as the other regular colored versions. From a limited period running from July 21st to July 29th (or July 22nd for those subscribing to AT&T), all Galaxy S8 devices from Best Buy will come with discounts of as much as $400 on the full retail price. If purchased from Samsung directly, the flagships will come with a $150 discount, specifically for the black and coral blue editions.
As offered on retail giant Best Buy, the Galaxy S8 can be bought by customers as an unlocked device or for activation on the networks of Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint. Wait -- where is T-Mobile? Unfortunately for subscribers of the Uncarrier, Best Buy does not sell handsets that will connect on T-Mobile’s network. But not to worry -- Samsung sells unlocked versions by way of its official online store.
News of a different color option for the Galaxy S8 first hit the interwebs about a month ago. As for coral blue, Samsung has actually offered the color option before for last year’s disastrous Galaxy Note 7. After the explosive phablet was recalled and later discontinued, the South Korean phone maker then proceeded to adopt the color option for its Galaxy S7 Edge. The Galaxy S8 is already considered by many as the Android powered smartphone device to beat this year (so far), and a coral blue color option will undoubtedly provide a more sunny alternative to the monochrome black, silver, and gray colored versions. The coral blue edition of the Galaxy S8 has actually already been released in Samsung’s homeland, South Korea, as well as in the United Kingdom several weeks ago.
As for American buyers, they might be delighted to know that when purchasing the coral blue edition of the Galaxy S8, they will also be getting the Bixby Voice mobile app, which recently just rolled out in the United States this week.
