New Arrivals: Sony Xperia in Rosso Red & Samsung Galaxies in Pink & Blue

By 29th October 2017Phones

Move aside iPhone(RED), Sony and Samsung are adding new color finishes to their flagship phones which look super vibrant, unique and posh! The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is coming in Rosso Red, Samsung Galaxy S8 in Rose Pink, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in Deepsea Blue.

If you’re eyeing to buy the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, you’re in luck – Sony has just launched the XZ Premium in a beautiful red color variant called Rosso. The finish of the Xperia XZ Premium Rosso looks really unique as red on glass isn’t something that other competitors have toyed with yet. Although some might find Rosso a tad tacky, we definitely think it looks sporty and classy. It will roll out in Singapore starting from 4 November, and comes at a suggested retail price of S$1,098. The perfect color-themed gift for Christmas and Chinese New Year!

Meanwhile, Samsung is bringing in the Galaxy S8 in a new Rose Pink shade. It’s more on the pinkish and feminine side, but the new finish retains that class and style could appeal to boys and match the dapper pink business shirts that’ve come into fashion in recent years.

On the other hand, the Deepsea Blue variant for Galaxy Note 8 looks absolutely modern and striking. It looks very sophisticated while setting itself apart from the standard black finish, and goes with with dark-tinted businesswear – excellent for the businesswoman and man on the go.

The Galaxy S8 in Rose Pink will be available from 4 November 2017 at a recommended retail price of $1,148 while the Galaxy Note8 in Deepsea Blue will be available from 11 November 2017 at a recommended retail price of $1,398.

We love how smartphone manufacturers are moving away from the tried-and-true black, white, grey and gold colors which have been so common over the past few years. These new colors exude some serious shine and class while setting themselves apart from the regular business-like colors we’ve come to expect from the smartphone bigwigs.



Edit: I’ve just been informed by the nice folks at Samsung that they’re throwing in a few nice goodies with the purchase of every S8/Note8:

  • Customers who purchase a Galaxy S8 or S8+ from 4 November 2017 at local telecommunication operators on a 2-year contract or at Samsung Experience Stores, will receive a complimentary Samsung Wireless Charger Convertible (Black) worth S$118 on a while-stocks-last basis. This is a FAST 15W CHARGER, not the slower ones you find at cheap electronics stores.
  • Customers who purchase a Galaxy Note8 from 4 November 2017 at local telecommunication operators on a 2-year contract or at Samsung Experience Stores will receive a complimentary AKG Y50BT On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones by Harman (Black) worth $249.90 on a while-stocks-last basis. This isn’t some cheap earpiece – it’s on-ear headphones which provide some decent sound!
