You can now buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 in a gorgeous new colour

Samsung on Wednesday announced a new colour available for its Galaxy S8 flagship phone: coral blue.

The creamy blue colour — a mix between baby blue and silver — joins the S8’s colour lineup in the US, which already includes arctic silver, midnight black, and orchid grey (the S8 also comes in maple gold outside the US).

Here it is:

To Samsung fans, however, coral blue will look pretty familiar.

The colour was first announced as a new shade for the Galaxy Note 7, but production was halted and that phone was recalled in 2016 after several cases of Note 7 phones exploding were reported. Samsung then added the colour as an option for the S7 Edge last October.

The shade is a pretty gorgeous addition to the S8’s colour lineup, and one of the few blue premium smartphones on the market. You’ll be able to buy it both unlocked or with a carrier starting July 21 at Best Buy and Samsung.com.
