Check out the Cardinal Red variant of the Galaxy S10 (Update: Galaxy S10e, too)
Update, June 3, 2019 (10:15 AM ET): When the article below was published, we had reached out to Samsung to confirm if the Cardinal Red colorway would come to all versions of the Galaxy S10 family or just the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. Unfortunately, Samsung never got back to us.
However, WinFuture alleges that the Cardinal Red colorway is coming to the Samsung Galaxy S10e. Since this is the same source that supplied the original info of the Cardinal Red variant, it seems likely that this will be the case.
There’s still no word on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, though.
WinFuture did say that we should expect this colorway to land in Europe in the next few weeks. Hopefully, it will also make its way to the United States eventually. There should be no price difference for the Cardinal Red version as compared to other colors in the series.
Original article, May 21, 2019 (01:20 PM ET): The Samsung Galaxy S10 launched a few months ago, but Samsung is apparently readying a brand new variant of its latest flagship smartphone. At some point in the future, there could be a Cardinal Red version of the S10 as well as the Galaxy S10 Plus.
The news comes via leaked renders from Roland Quandt over at WinFuture. Quandt posted the renders in a tweet, which you can see below:

Although the renders show off the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus in various positions, there are still quite a few unanswered questions about the new color. However, before we get into that, check out the renders below:
These renders are very likely legit for a few reasons. The first reason is that Roland Quandt is a fairly reliable source when it comes to things such as this. The second reason is that Samsung is known to launch new colorways of its flagship devices not long after the main launch period. The third reason is that red colorways are common from Samsung, so everything here seems to check out.
If Samsung is planning on launching a Cardinal Red variant of the Galaxy S10, a bunch of questions then arise. How much will it cost? When will it see a release? In which countries? Will it be just for the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, or will the Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10 5G also get some love?
We’ve reached out to Samsung for comment and will update this if we should hear back.
In the meantime, let us know what you think of the supposed new color in the comments!
