The Samsung Galaxy S9 series are already a couple of months old. And if you have already forgotten about them, Samsung will try to refresh your memory by releasing a new color variant for this line.

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ Ice Blue color option sports a color gradient that looks inspired by the Antarctic ice. The color also has Disney’s “Frozen” vibes to it.

Upon launch, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S9 in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple. They since then added the Burgundy Red, Sunrise Gold, and now, the Ice Blue to the mix.

On the downside, the new variant is only available in China, at least for now. The Galaxy S9 model has a price of CNY5,500 (~Php41,900), while Galaxy S9+ will be at CNY6,500 (~Php49,500). Both variants will come with 128GB of storage.

But if you can’t wait to own a Galaxy S9 or S9+ already, you can get any of these devices with the standard colors. The base model for both smartphones has an official price of Php45,990 and Php52,990, respectively.

Alternatively, you can also check the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Although it has a lot of similarities to the Galaxy S9+, this device is geared more for the power users and productivity jukies with its larger 6.4-inch display, a bigger 4,000mAh battery, and of course, the included S Pen.
