Turns out the gold Galaxy S9 might be sold in the US after all

Maybe you should wait on purchasing the Galaxy S9, especially if you’re into special colors.

Samsung recently announced its flagship would be sold in Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold. Both weren’t listed as being released in the United States, though. But the company still appeared likely to bring the two new colors to the U.S. this summer. Now there’s a very strong indication of that happening.

The Galaxy S9 in gold, according to mobile industry insider Evan Blass, will indeed make its way to the U.S. at a later date. He responded to a tweet saying the color isn’t going to be sold in the market, asking “Oh yeah?” along with the attachment of two press renders.

While the phones in his tweet may look identical to what Samsung announced, there’s a very minor difference that tells us about the company’s plans. Around the world, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ don’t have their names stamped on the back. The U.S. variants, however, do. That’s exactly what the phones in Blass’ press renders show.

Blass could be waiting to tease the Galaxy S9 in red, so don’t rule out that color jumping to the U.S. either. Both colors might arrive together in the next few months.
