I would love to see a Burgundy Red Galaxy Note 9
Can we all just agree on the fact that the Burgundy Red variant of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 should have been there from day one? I know some of you are heading down to the comments section right now to tell me how marketing dictates that Samsung bring out these new colors at a later time to renew consumer interest in the device. But is it that hard to just make Burgundy Red a launch option and, um, bring out the gold and purple versions at a later time?
Burgundy Red is stunning and classy
I was never a fan of phones that weren’t black. But Samsung’s Infinity display dictates that the front of the device always be all black, so I was suddenly free to choose from any of the other colors available with a new Samsung flagship. Of course, it helps that the company is using some tasteful and sober shades these days. And if you have seen a Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 or S9 in person, you probably came away impressed with its beauty. But it wasn’t available at launch, and if Samsung hadn’t sent me a Burgundy Red Galaxy S8, I probably wouldn’t be craving for it to become a standard color option.
Samsung did send me one, though, so it is disappointing that Burgundy Red isn’t going to be available for the Galaxy Note 9. And I don’t think Samsung will bring it to the Note 9 even a few months later. Galaxy Note flagships aren’t supposed to be mainstream offerings in the same vein as the Galaxy S line. That means the company is far less likely to spend extra resources on bringing out new color options later on.
And with the tenth-anniversary Galaxy S flagship due to arrive next year, there are even fewer chances of Samsung making an exception by releasing new colors for the Galaxy Note 9. But one can hope, right? I already have one solid reason to get the upcoming Note on day one, and a Burgundy Red version would have made it a no-brainer.
