When the Galaxy S8 launched in the US earlier this year, it was available in three colors: Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, and Orchid Gray. Now it seems that a fourth color option will soon be making its way stateside.
A new image shared by @evleaks shows what are said to be US-bound versions of the Coral Blue Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. These devices look just like the other colors of GS8 and GS8+ that are currently available in the US, complete with “Samsung” and “Galaxy S8” or “Galaxy S8+” branding on their backsides, but they’re donning a Coral Blue hue that’s currently not available in the US.

Samsung is no stranger to launching new colors of its existing flagships to get some fresh attention for them, and so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Coral Blue versions of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come to the US. That’s especially true considering that the Coral Blue versions already exist in other parts of the globe. The question is when will these blue GS8 and GS8+ phones actually become available in the US. Hopefully it’ll be soon.
