Samsung launches a Cardinal Red variant of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus

The Cardinal Red Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are up on sale only in Switzerland for now.

Samsung is known to releases new colour options for its phones a few months after launch, and for the Galaxy S10 range that's going to be Cardinal Red.

As was claimed in a recent leak, the Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus are both now available in a red shade, but so far, it's only gone on sale in Switzerland. There's still been no official word on whether we will see the Cardinal Red Galaxy S10 come to other markets.

The new red variant is also limited to the 128 GB models of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus. If you want more storage, you will have to settle for a regular shade.

There's also talk which suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S10e will be getting a Cardinal Red paint job as well, but that has yet to be made available in Switzerland.
