A new year means a new range of Samsung Galaxy S phones, as well as new color options. But compared to previous years, Samsung seems to be doing something slightly different with the Samsung Galaxy S23 series.
For the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, we saw one set of colors for the S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus and another for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, but for the S23 series, leaks suggest that all three phones will come in the same hue.
So below, you’ll find everything we’ve heard about the hues of the Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup, along with the most likely options for each phone.
One color we’ve heard mentioned is Cotton Flower, which could be cream or off-white based on the leaked image (pictured above). We’ve heard of beige elsewhere, which might refer to that as well.
Multiple sources mention colors along these lines, and leaked images show this shade, strongly suggesting it will be an option.
From the images we’ve seen, it’s not the most inspiring finish, but white always seems to be a popular color anyway, and this might be the closest the Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup comes to that.
It also looks different from any of the Samsung Galaxy S22 shades — there’s a creamy, but more yellowish one. The S22 series is also available in pure white.

Misty Lilac seems to be a fancy name for pink, and you can see the leaked image above. This shade has also been mentioned several times, so it will most likely be available at launch.
It appears to be a very light pink, much paler and more understated than the pink-gold hue that the Samsung Galaxy S22 can take. So it’s also a hue that’s not available on the current model.

We’ve also heard multiple references to the shade of green, with one source claiming it’s called Vegetal Green and sharing a picture of what it might look like.
This is more interesting and unusual than the first two options, but probably less popular because of it. It looks somewhat similar to the green Galaxy S22 shade, but lighter and paler.
Phantom Black is the classic Samsung hue we’ve seen before. It’s also only available in black, one of the most popular and common smartphone finishes.
Of course, there’s more than one type of black, and from the leaked images, this one appears to be a very muted pale black.
It’s another color we’ve heard mentioned a number of times, plus it’s a popular option we’re looking forward to seeing.
light gold/pink gold
The four colors above currently look like the shades we’re most likely to see, but at least one source also mentions that there may be a light gold or pink gold option.
Now, there’s a pink one on it, so they might be referring to that, but the leaked image doesn’t suggest that that has any gold, so it could be something different. If so, we wouldn’t expect to see it, since it wasn’t widely mentioned.
White isn’t the color we’ve heard for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, but a leak revealed that the dummy units for all three phones are white, which is a different color than the cotton flower above.
So we can’t rule out this color, but we’re also not too convinced we’ll see it compared to other rumored shades.
other possible shades
While the colors above are all specific shades we’ve heard about, a source says there may be other exclusive shades available in the Samsung store.
It’s not uncommon for the company so it’s believable that here we might see color options vary for each model, there might be some Galaxy S23 Ultra hues that aren’t available on the other two phones, and vice versa.
It’s unclear what shades these might be — unless they’re the less-rumored pale gold or white options above — but there are plenty of possibilities. The Samsung Galaxy S22 series comes in a variety of colors that Samsung can pick from; including sky blue, burgundy, red, violet, and other options.
Of course, the company will likewise pick something from older models or new shades that weren’t offered before.
