Full Story

The Galaxy S24 trio has officially arrived. Thanks to leaks, we already knew the color palette Samsung had in store for us, and there were no big shocks. The lineup includes light shades of yellow, violet, blue, green, and gray across all models. While these colors are undoubtedly attractive, some people might feel a bold, daring color option is missing.

Let’s talk about Samsung’s color choices. The company tends to play it safe, and that’s been the trend for a while. Sure, the Galaxy S24 colors this year aren’t identical to the S23’s from last year. The hues are different, but they essentially stay within the same lane, don’t they?

We still see a subdued violet/purple and a muted yellow/white (the Cream for the S23). The usual suspects of black and gray are present as well. You don’t have to examine the entire Galaxy S24 color range to see the similarities. As exclusive colors, we’re getting light blue, light green, and light orange this year.

The S24 Ultra this year boasts different colors to highlight the new Titanium design. However, the shades remain familiar: violet, yellow, black, and gray. For the Ultra, we get Titanium Orange, which edges closer to being a daring color, but it’s still quite under-saturated.

The only somewhat daring color we’ve seen from Samsung recently is the exclusive Red for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Unfortunately, it’s not available this year.

When discussing colors, it’s important to remember they aren’t chosen randomly. Shall we touch on a principle in fashion? Trends and brands often work like this: one does it first, the others follow. So why isn’t Samsung stepping up?

One could argue that Samsung is simply following trends with the Galaxy S24 colors. These colors do look premium and stylish. However, if you know a thing or two about fashion, you’ll know that big brands usually set the tone for what’s trendy.

Samsung is a major player in the tech market with a stellar reputation for design. It’s in a prime position to offer something new in terms of colors. If a lesser-known Chinese company does it, we might not pay much attention. But if Samsung does it… well, that’s a different story.

Yet, Samsung seems to be more of a follower than a trendsetter. Most flagship phones, including those from Samsung’s biggest competitor, Apple, come in subdued colors. We’re not seeing anything exceptional or out of the box. Samsung has the opportunity to set a new tone. Imagine a red Galaxy S24 Ultra with the imposing Titanium design. Or a bright yellow that screams “look at me!”.

Why not a Galaxy Ultra color that’s as bright and powerful as the sun? Or how about a new approach – two colors that look good together? Or a real galaxy-inspired color option? Samsung’s event was all about “Welcome to the future”, but then we see the same light blue as previous Galaxy iterations!

The Nothing Phone 2 is attempting a futuristic look with its glyphs. But what if Samsung could do something even better?

I know my suggestions might sound cheesy, but think about it. Samsung’s design is impressive. Regardless of the color, these phones will still look premium. Samsung should consider setting a new trend in color. Let’s hope the company will innovate in this department in the future.
