Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra colors: seven colors now available
There are total of seven Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra colors, including three that are exclusive to the Samsung Store
Update: All seven Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra colors are now available today, January 31, although three are Samsung Store exclusive hues and delivery dates have been pushed back to February 7, according to Samsung. Here’s where to get them.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra colors list
The new Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra comes in seven different colors, all with fresh titanium-themed hues that match Samsung’s first-ever titanium frame on a phone. This year’s colors consist of Titanium Black, Titanium Yellow, Titanium Gray, Titanium Violet, Titanium Green, Titanium Blue and Titanium Orange.
As we mentioned in our Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra review, we’ve tested four of the seven new colors in person, but there are some secret S24 Ultra colors that you won’t find at your carrier in the US. The three bolder, Samsung Store-exclusive colors are Titanium Green, Titanium Blue and Titanium Orange. So while you’ll find the four default S24 Ultra colors at retailers like Amazon and Best Buy or Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, these three colors are available exclusively through Samsung’s online store.
Here’s what the S24 Ultra colors look like:
The Samsung S24 Ultra color in Titanium Black seems like just another black matte rectangle. But that’s exactly the color a lot of The Shortcut followers want, according to our exclusive sales data. It’s been the No. 1 selling version through our channel.
Yes, it seems you can’t beat this classic color and it's nicely anodized onto the metal so it looks like the titanium shell naturally comes in this smokey gray color. This is the color to get if you want the latest all-black Android smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S24 is the first Galaxy S device to come in yellow, and the S24 Ultra comes in a special titanium yellow color. This pale yellow almost looks like very close to the champagne gold we’ve seen on iPhones in years past so this should be a great option for gold-colored phone lovers. Since Apple’s iPhone 15 doesn’t include a gold color, Samsung swooped in.
Of the default S24 Ultra colors available at Best Buy and Samsung, it’s the brightest on the list, but can report that the Samsung has even more vibrant colors exclusive at its online store if you’re looking to truly stand out.
This S24 Ultra in gray color way is the closest thing you can get to the natural metal color of titanium itself – and the one we have in for review. It’s the perfect shade to show off your new Samsung flagship in a neutral, understated fashion. Also, as seen throughout The Shortcut’s iPhone 15 Pro Max review, this color matches the Apple’s default iPhone ‘Natural’ titanium color, to no one’s surprise. Samsung is out to match or beat Apple with its Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra specs, color options included.
Titanium Violet might be the most ostentatious color that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is available in. This regal purple’s dark shade offers the perfect contrast to the phone’s polished bits like the polished metal side rails and rings around the camera lenses. To give you an idea of how it looks in person, Samsung has had some great Bora Purple colors in the the past, and this one comes in a shade darker than that.
This titanium green S24 Ultra color is the first exclusive Samsung Store color that’s so far not available at other retailers in the US. You won’t find this color on sale at Best Buy, Amazon or any American carrier like Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile. It’s an extremely light shade of green that’s bright and fun without being too verdant.
Titanium blue is the only blue S24 Ultra color option you can buy, and it’s another Samsung Store exclusive, so skip Best Buy if you want this one. This color looks so light and desaturated that it’s almost a gray-blue instead of sky blue. This replaces the more dynamic Sky Blue color we saw last year, factoring into our in-depth Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs S23 Ultra comparison.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra in Titanium Orange is the final color we can analyze, as we’ve come to the seventh color on the list. If you’re looking for a red S24 Ultra like last year’s flagship Samsung phone, then this is the closest color you’ll find on sale through the Samsung Store. What does it look like? It’s a slightly tan-orange color that gives off a shade of leather. You’ll still want a Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra case, but it almost looks like a leather case given the tan color.
The importance of your S24 Ultra color choice
The S24 series marks one of the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 phones to launch in the US, so finding a standout color for such a powerful device is important. It’s not just because you’ll want to like the color immediately out of the box, but also because this phone may be around for a while. Samsung said it’ll provide seven years of Android updates for the S24 series, so this phone may be in service until 2031 or beyond, according to that promised lifecycle.
Buying S24 Ultra colors at Samsung or Best Buy
Both Samsung and Best Buy remain the most popular online retail stores in which you can purchase the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra on launch day. Both have the phone on sale for the same price starting at at $1,299 for the 256GB base model and offer boosted trade-in values. However, it’s Samsung that has those exclusive colors.
That being said, if you decide to purchase one of the default Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra colors, Best Buy is running a far better promotion for the next few days. It’s offering a $150 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of a phone.
