Samsung has announced two new colors for the Galaxy Note 5, both of which will be available only in Korea for the time being. Along with a titanium-hued finish, customers will be able to get the Note 5 in a “pink gold” shade reminiscent of Apple’s ‘rose gold’ iPhone 6s, which will go on sale in Korea later this month.

The pink gold model will go on sale on October 23rd, the same day Apple’s phone is set to debut in the country. The titanium model doesn’t have a solid date set yet, with reports simply indicating that it will be out “soon.”

Last year Samsung introduced a pink version of the Note 4, so the move isn’t totally unprecedented, though the timing certainly makes it seem like this is a response to Apple’s rollout.

The titanium model will come in two capacities, 32 GB and 64 GB, while pink gold will only be available in the larger size. Samsung says it has plans to roll these colors out to additional Asian markets, but whether they’ll ever see release in the United States is still unknown.
