Samsung Galaxy S21 series colour options
Starting from the Galaxy S21 Ultra, we only saw the phone with Phantom Silver and Phantom Black colours before. According to the latest exposed pictures, the phone will also have three custom colour options with dark tones. It is reported that the one with the graphite surface will be called Phantom Titanium, the other two colours seem to have dark blue and brown surface coatings.
When you come to the Galaxy S21+, you can see a bright red colour scheme with a contrasting rose gold frame and camera module. Others are available in black, purple, pink, and light blue.
As for the standard version of the Galaxy S21, the phone will be available in four colour options. The colours include white, black, pink and purple.
