If there’s one thing Samsung loves doing, it’s teasing early customers of its flagship phones with newer color options that launch exclusively in some markets around the world a few months later. The company didn’t take nearly as long to introduce new colors for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, though. The Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold Galaxy S9 and S9+ were announced a month ago, and while the red version is going to be exclusive to China and South Korea, the Sunrise Gold option will be more widely available.

But for many, both the red and gold Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be inaccessible, so pictures and videos online might be the only way for them to check the new colors out. To that end, you can get a very good look at the beautiful Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in 4K glory in a video released by Korean YouTube channel underKG.

Burgundy Red remains as elusive as ever

For us, the Burgundy Red Galaxy S9 is the more beautiful option here. The Sunrise Gold model is a tad too bright compared to the more sober gold seen on the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8, although that doesn’t mean it’s not attractive, either. But it’s disappointing that Samsung has chosen to limit the Burgundy Red option to only two countries, leaving prospective customers in other markets drooling over a color variant they can’t officially purchase.

Check out the video above, then tell us which of the two new Galaxy S9 colors takes your fancy by leaving a comment.
