Sunrise Gold Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ goes on sale in the US today

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ were released back in March. They are undoubtedly considered some of the best smartphones of 2018. They offer top of the line specifications, spectacular design, and stellar build quality. At launch, the devices were available in Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, and Midnight Black variants. Later Samsung announced two new color options—Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold. The first one launched for South Korea and China, while the second one became available for several international markets including most recently India. Samsung promised that “additional market availability” was coming soon and they’re following through on that promise by selling the Sunrise Gold Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the United States starting today.

Samsung offers 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions for the Galaxy S9 and S9+. You can now purchase the Sunrise Gold Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the following prices from Best Buy and Samsung’s official website:
