Remember when the South Korean smartphone giant launched a pink version of its Galaxy S8 that no one could buy in India or USA? Well, it looks like we now have a new great looking Galaxy phone that we won’t get.
Just recently, the company revealed a new variant of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus on its Chinese website. The new phone variant comes in a Red color with the same glass back and it admittedly looks rather cool.
The phone will cost the same as other variants of the phone but Samsung has not talked about any plans of the phone being launched on countries outside of China.
Interestingly enough, the phone ships with a matching red Yves Saint Laurent lipstick, probably to attract women looking for a Luxury phone.

I will keep an eye on it and let you know if the phone ever comes to US and India but judging from past experience, it probably won’t happen.
Samsung announced that the company’s sales figures have been poor in China and launching exclusive phone variants and marketing then via celebrities looks to be a way to increase sales, only time will tell if it works out in Samsung’s favor.
