Let the Sun Rise with the Samsung Galaxy S9 Gold Edition

Gold S9

Remember when rose gold was all the rage? We’re trying to forget that time too. Fortunately, Samsung has a new gold color for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ that we can handle – and it’s a “Sunrise Gold”.

“The Sunrise Gold edition for Galaxy S9 and S9+ is Samsung’s first device to feature a satin gloss finish which wraps the smartphone in a tranquil glow and glimmer.”

All marketing talk aside, this new color addition is a rather subdued and refined gold – it’s not at all a flashy Trump-like gold if you know what we mean. The Sunrise Gold edition is also a lot more refined than the Galaxy S8’s Maple Gold option which appeared to be closer to a Rose Gold.

In any case, the Sunrise Gold version of the Galaxy S9/S9+ is finally being released here in the U.S. It was originally released back in May to a whole bunch of other countries, but the U.S. was left out.
