If you were looking for something a bit different in the color of your next phone, Samsung is adding the Coral Blue version of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to their lineup in the U.S. market. We are used to seeing carrier exclusive phones, but in the case of the Coral Blue Galaxy S8 devices, the exclusivity is extended to a retailer – Best Buy – as well as Samsung themselves. The new color will be available for purchase starting this Friday, July 21.
If you pick up the new device from Best Buy, you will have the option of carrier-specific versions for Verizon, AT&T or Sprint as well as the unlocked version. Through their Samsung.com online store, the unlocked Coral Blue version will also be available from the manufacturer.
Sweetening the pot even more, Samsung indicates that purchases made at Best Buy between July 21st and July 29th may qualify a buyer for up to $400 off the retail price. Best Buy has not yet posted the details regarding this special promotion, but with that much of a potential discount it should definitely be something you check into if you are thinking of buying a new phone in the next week or so.
Although not as extensive, Samsung is also offering a promotional deal that can yield savings of $150 off the retail price of the Coral Blue and Midnight Black versions of the Galaxy S8 phones. Samsung will also accept trade-ins to help offset the cost even more.
Samsung says matching cases for Coral Blue will be available as well.
