    Exclusive: The Samsung Galaxy S9 might launch with these color options

    Remember that violet/purple Galaxy S8 that made the rounds in the rumor mill but never made an official appearance? According to what we have been able to glean from our sources, Samsung could be bringing the purple color option for the Galaxy S9 next year, in addition to black, gold, and blue. We aren't aware of the official color names, but we're guessing the purple version could be something like the Deep Blue variant of the Galaxy Note 8.

    A purple Galaxy S9, you say? We're in, but only if…

    … it's a dark shade of purple (violet), instead of a color along the lines of the bright and shiny Coral Blue option that was introduced last year with the Note 7 (before ultimately making its way to the Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy S8). But it remains to be seen what the actual color will be, at least for the purple variant. The gold, black, and blue are likely to be the same as the paint jobs seen on the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung is welcome to surprise us, and judging by the way the company is going about with its flagship phone colors, the Galaxy S9 will probably have a color to suit everyone's preference.

    Exclusive: The Samsung Galaxy S9 might launch with these color options

    Not that Samsung would be launching all color options in every market in the beginning, as dictated by tradition, and the front of every color variant will undoubtedly be all-black like it is on the S8 and Note 8. It's also a tad disappointing that a red Galaxy S9 isn't on the cards for the initial launch. As the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 has shown us, it's a color choice that really brings out the beauty of the phone's glass-heavy design, and consumers would no doubt welcome a red Galaxy S9 with open wallets arms.

    As we always say, none of this information should be taken as fact until something substantial comes up. These color options for the Galaxy S9 wouldn't be the least bit surprising, but it's recommended to keep the proverbial grain of salt handy. After all, that violet Galaxy S8 never saw the light of day, despite pictures of the thing having made an appearance on the internet. There's also a high chance this isn't the final list of colors and options like Orchid Gray and Arctic Silver could be a part of the lineup; we will just have to wait and see.

    What's your take on the Galaxy S9 color choices?
