As expected, the Galaxy S9 in Sunrise Gold will be released in the United States.

Samsung confirmed the news following a month of speculation. The South Korean company originally announced the gold color alongside a red-colored Galaxy S9 in May, but the U.S. was left out from a list including nearly a dozen countries.

It turns out Samsung was waiting to make an individual announcement for the U.S. shortly before the release date.

The gold-colored Galaxy S9 will begin availability in the U.S. on June 24. The color arrives as summer begins, and Samsung’s Justin Denison says it “gives you another option to showcase your personal style.” Samsung’s latest flagship is also sold in Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, and Coral Blue.

You’re only able to purchase the Galaxy S9 in Sunrise Gold from Best Buy or Samsung. The electronics retailer has exclusive dibs on the carrier variants in the new color, and it’ll also sell an unlocked variant with the fresh coat of paint. Samsung, meanwhile, is only offering the Galaxy S9 in Sunrise Gold without any carrier involvement.

The prices remain the same, starting at $719 for the Galaxy S9 and $839 for the Galaxy S9+. Both models have configurations with 128GB or 256GB of storage in the event 64GB isn’t enough. If you trade-in your current phone, you can get up to $400 off the price of any model and configuration.
