When Samsung’s Galaxy S8 launched here in the US, color options were pretty limited. You had your Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver, but that’s it. That’s a pretty bland list of available finishes, and thankfully the company is fixing this by introducing a Coral Blue S8 and S8+ this coming Friday.

The handset, arriving in a lighter-blue finish that looks pretty slick in its renders, will go on sale exclusively at Best Buy on Friday, July 21st, for those on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. It’ll also be available unlocked starting at $724.99.

To celebrate the launch, Best Buy will offer a $150 discount on the Coral Blue and Midnight Black S8 and S8+, therefore making the prices much more attractive at just $574.99 and $674.99, respectively. Those who make a qualifying purchase or activate their new S8 on a network could get an even steeper discount of $400.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Infinity Displays, Snapdragon 835 processors, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, Android Nougat, 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries respectively, and 12MP rear cameras.
