Samsung A5 - Color Options?

I'm currently on Koodo with my own phone (Redmi whatever the heck), and since the cost to replace the screen would be more than the initial lowest up front cost I can pay to get an A5(a phone I'd truly love!), I'm planning on purchasing an A5 when it has been 3 months since I started with Koodo.
Anyway, long story short, I'm wondering if Koodo stores/carriers would have different color options for the phone or if I'm actually stuck with either black or that light blue color(which I understand is only available online). Simply because I fell in love with that sort of rose-gold color, but it looks like Koodo will stiff me and make me choose one of the two I don't really want.

Thanks!

Hello Crystal,

From what I understand, blue is only available online and black in-stores. Unfortunately, that would be the 2 colours options available. I'm sorry to disappoint you.

If it's a Redmi, then it is made by Xaomi, an awesome phone!

Unfortunately the colour options you see on the koodo webpage is all Koodo carries

Thanks for the help! I'm just not big on the Redmi phone, I had an S5 for a long time and it was hands down my favorite phone ever. The A5 draws me in because of the great camera on both the front and back of the phone, and the similarities to the S5.

For exclusive colours, BestBuy is usually good for that. I just checked their website, looks like it's black colour on Koodo (just like Koodo stores). I see BestBuy carries both black and blue colours on Bell/Virgin, but no other colours available under any carrier.

If you order directly from Samsung, you might get more options.

That was super helpful, thank you! I'm kind of peeved now as I know it's available in rose-gold, pink, etc, but the only color options even the samsung website is showing me are the blue and black. I'd maybe even hazard a guess that they haven't started shipping out/making those colors available, but lord only knows.

P.S I would totally order directly from Samsung if I could, but I'm only going the Koodo route because I'm on way, way too tight of a budget to allow me to spend even a few hundred bucks on a phone. 100, doable. 500, not so much. So I've got to choose something on a tab that isn't more than say, 15-20 bucks extra each month above my current 40 dollar plan. (Which also means the phone + tab must allow for 40 or less plans). I'm kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place, so I went for the nifty cameras. 
Well I'm. Looking to get a silver. Samsung A5S But don't see it here ...hoping it shows up soon I want a change soon I'm loving the size also

Hi Crystal,

That is a good choice, some Koodo In-line stores, actual stores and not the kiosk, do carry the blue colour. Do you know if one of your mall have a Koodo in-line store? If you do, I recommend calling in and see if they have it in-stock. If they don't, it will only be online where you can order it.
