Today Samsung is launching a new color version for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ – Ice Blue. It’s the first gradient color option for the outgoing flagship duo and is available only in China for now.
Here’s how the Ice Blue color compares to the original Coral Blue:
Samsung Galaxy S9: Ice Blue • Coral Blue
Samsung Galaxy S9+: Ice Blue • Coral Blue
Samsung has introduced many new colors to the Galaxy S9 pair since its launch, including Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red in addition to the original color selection.
Anyway, if you’re in China and are interested in buying a unit, pre-orders start today at CNY 5,500 for the Galaxy S9 128GB and CNY 6,500 for the Galaxy S9+ 128GB. The S9 will ship on November 20, the S9+ on the 26th.
Those prices translate to $790 and $935, respectively. Don’t be shocked, that’s how much the 128GB S9 phones cost in China. They do come bundled with a wireless charger, but so do the other colors.
