Today is the first day you can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S20 series of smartphones. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to pre-order the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus in Aura Red unless you live in South Korea and use Korea Telecom as your carrier.
We saw leaked images and renders of the sleek red colorway for the S20 Plus earlier this month. However, we didn’t see that there will be a matching set of Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, too. The phone and the earbuds look positively divine together. See for yourself below:
Unfortunately, Samsung is getting quite confusing with the naming scheme for these products. The YouTube video above makes it very clear that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Aura Red color is also referred to as “Jennie Red.” This references Jennie of the K-pop group Blackpink who features heavily in the advertisement.
However, the Galaxy Buds Plus are apparently just “red” without the “Aura” aspect. So the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus comes in both Aura Red and Jennie Red (which are the same color) while the Galaxy Buds Plus come in just red. Couldn’t be clearer.
Likely, the Jennie Red moniker will be used exclusively in South Korea where K-pop is (obviously) huge. The Aura Red name will probably be used throughout the rest of the world.
Speaking of the rest of the world, when will other countries see the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus in Aura Red? Samsung is mum on this for now, but it will likely land in at least Europe eventually and possibly the United States. Now you need to decide if it’s worth waiting for the red colorway or to pre-order one of the other colors now. Decisions, decisions.
