Samsung might release black version of S3

August 9, 2012

A pictures series of the Galaxy S3 was recently posted on Samsung’s Facebook page. While they were uploaded to show off the phone’s features and how they can enhance the Olympics experience, we’re more interested in the color of the device(s) shown. It appears there’s a black variant Galaxy S3 out there that Samsung has forgotten to share with the rest of the world. Is the company readying a new black variant of the world’s top-selling smartphone?

We can’t be too sure if it’s really a black Galaxy S3 or if it’s just the lighting affecting the phone’s color. For all we know, it could simply be the Pebble Blue model. On the other hand, perhaps Samsung is trying to drum up some interest first before making it official.

Releasing phones in different colors is one way to keep sales momentum going after the initial hype and excitement die down.  We’ve seen AT&T getting a Garnet Red Galaxy S3 model, so it’s still within the realm of possibility that we’ll see more color options. Besides, the two previous Galaxy S series phones also came in black. Samsung may want to keep the tradition alive.

What do you think? Is it a black or pebble blue Galaxy S3? Would you get the black model if it’s available? How about a pink version of Galaxy S3 a la the Galaxy Note? Sound off in the comments below.
