Starting in May, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is getting a pair of new colours, Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold.

Samsung said sales of the Galaxy S9 series, which was released March 16, surpassed the 1 million mark this week.

At least initially, the Burgundy Red edition will only be available in Korea and China starting sometime this month. The company does note additional markets will be added to the gold color's list, but it isn't clear yet if the USA could be added. Other markets will follow after that, but there's no word on any U.S. availability.

Which one do you like the most, Burgundy Red or Sunrise Gold? Samsung appears to be determined to expand the reach of the S9 and S9+ with the addition of new variants.

GasBuddy: Gas prices on the rise
Late spring and summer travel is expected to be more costly this year as fuel prices touch almost every sector of the economy. Of course the rising prices will mean more pain at the pump just as the summer driving season is getting underway.

The South Korean tech giant introduced Burgundy Red with last year's Galaxy S8.

We hope it includes the U.S. because it's a nice looking color option. It has restrained gloss for added density and its appearance is a mixture of contemporary and traditional. According to Samsung, this will "wrap the smartphone in a tranquil glow and glimmer" while creating a feeling of both "vibrancy and calm". It aims to appeal all users based on style and fashion, providing an urban interior design to the devices.

According to the publication, the release of smartphones in new colors, the manufacturer has chose to heat up the cooling buyer interest for its current flagship.
