According to Droid Life, the Coral Blue Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus could be available exclusively from Best Buy US as early as tomorrow.
Samsung Galaxy S8 color comparison
When Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy S8 duo back in April, the company announced a total of five color options: Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, Orchid Grey, Maple Gold, and Coral Blue. While the first three have been available in the US since launch, there’s been no official word on if and when the other two colors would make their way stateside. Well, according to a trusted source of Droid Life, one of them could be available in the US as early as tomorrow.
The new color will debut as a Best Buy exclusive, most likely tomorrow, June 13.
Last month, Evan Blass claimed that the Coral Blue version of the Galaxy S8 duo would make its way to the US soon, without specifying when. Droid Life claims that it could be tomorrow: the online publication says that the new color will debut as a Best Buy exclusive, most likely tomorrow, June 13. This isn’t particularly surprising given that Best Buy has partnered with multiple smartphone manufacturers in the past to bring exclusive color variants. And yes, Coral Blue is the light blue paintjob that was introduced with the Galaxy Note 7 last year and then later added to the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Droid Life adds that Best Buy could run another promo on Galaxy S8 devices later this month, which could bring down their prices by as much as $250: $150 discount and $100 trade-in deal of some sort, to be precise. If you are not in a hurry to get your hands on a Galaxy S8 phone, it might be worth waiting a few more weeks to see if this is indeed true.
At any rate, with Coral Blue added to the list of available colors for the Galaxy S8 duo, the only variant that’s missing will be Maple Gold. Samsung hasn’t specified whether it will come to the US, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did later down the road as Galaxy S8 sales subside.
