The Galaxy S8 would look slick in coral blue

Images of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in coral blue have surfaced and, man, do they look good.

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have stunning bezel-less displays, but the back of the phones sometimes seem a little drab in comparison. That could change if the phones get a coral blue makeover, according to prolific mobile tipster Evan Blass, who claims the color is coming to Galaxy phones in the US.

Although the special color is unavailable in many countries, you can already buy it in South Korea, which leaves us wondering which other countries will get it, and when.

This is not not the first time Samsung has tried to entice buyers with an undersea makeover for its premium flagship phones. The Galaxy Note 7 was released in the calming shade in a few select countries, and when that phone was recalled Samsung released a coral blue Galaxy S7 Edge.

Currently the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus don't offer much in terms of color, with the only options available in the US are black, silver and gray. Booooooring. The blue phone pictured above is much more eye-catching than any of Samsung's monochromatic choices. 

And we're hoping Samsung has enough paint left over to coat the Galaxy Note 8 when it comes out, which is rumored to be late August.

Samsung declined to comment on this story.
