Earlier this month, Microsoft pulled back the cover on the company’s updated Surface Laptop 2 and with it came a new color option, black. But for Surface fans in China, Microsoft also has a new color for that audience.
Announced today, there is a ‘Blush’ color that will be available exclusively in China. The pink/gold-ish color was developed by an individual named Quan, on the Surface team, and will be available when the Laptop 2 goes on sale in that country.
This is one of the first times that we have seen Microsoft create a country-specific color option for its hardware and follows a trend other manufacturers have utilized to help localize products for the regions where the goods are offered.
In a dream world, I would love for Microsoft to allow us to customize the color of our devices like you can with the Xbox controller design lab but that introduces a serious amount of complexity and unfortunately, I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
If you do want one of these blush colored devices, you will either need to grab a plane ticket to China or find a friend who can export one to you.
