Eric, there is one point you keep hammering that I beg to differ with you on. I understand you HATE plastic, but that doesn't mean "there's no point to buying the plastic version".
I ALWAYS put my phone in a case to protect it. Once its in an Otterbox or something similar you can't tell if its plastic or leather (or if its plastic or a metal/glass phone for that matter really). So one could argue as well that unless you were't going to use a case at all there's no point to paying extra for leather (that's going to be hidden inside the case).
Personally I think people are putting way too much emphasis on the materials and not on the performance of phones. I've had plastic phones and have a metal/glass one now. With it in a case you... (continues)
I have been a user of Samsung phones for a long time. I use my phones all day every day. I dropped 8 to 10 calls per day in some cases, where it was an unlisted number I could not reach the customer back unless they called me right back.

Looks like Verizon (and maybe Sprint?) will get the black leather.
T-Mobile is getting the brown leather.
Any updates on when the other leather colours will be available? I'm looking at the red leather option. That colour + the champagne center button looks fantastic to me. 🤤
