Samsung should make available all color and storage variants of a device from day one


Last updated: July 6th, 2017 at 16:03 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ were launched in India in March. However, only 64GB variants were launched, and they were only available in three colors. Two months later, the 128GB storage variant of the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM was launched in the country. Now, the company has announced the availability of the Orchid Grey color variant of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ for the Indian market. A similar thing happened with the Galaxy S7 last year. Samsung announced Pearl Black and Pink Gold variants of the device, but only when the Galaxy Note 7 was recalled so that it could get some momentum going.

While Samsung has improved when it comes to launching various color variants across a wide range of markets, considering that it is the largest smartphone brand in the world and that it competes with Apple, it shouldn’t have a problem making all variants available from day one. Even if there are stock shortages of a particular color or storage variant in any market, it should at least announce that it plans to launch them at a later stage so that people who wish to buy those variants can wait.

Right now, there’s no official communication from Samsung regarding its plans, and this is cause for concern for anyone who purchases one of the initially available color or storage models just because the model they wanted wasn’t released. Samsung usually decides what colors will be launched based on what consumers in a country prefer, when it should instead be putting everything on the market and letting the consumer decide.

What do you think? Have you faced any such problems in buying Galaxy smartphones in your country?
