Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the newly announced Galaxy S4 has a bigger and better screen, a faster processor, and more software features, some that will make it to its predecessor anyway. But one area that the S4 can’t compete with – for now – is in the paintjob department, as it’ll only be available in black and white.

As for the S3, we heard earlier in the month that Sprint might be offering a new purple variant soon. Now, we have what appears to be the first official rendering of said purple model, which actually isn’t that far off from our own render.

Leaked by the folks at @evleaks, the purported new model is adorned with the usual Sprint branding on the back. But apart from what meets the eye, everything else should remain the same. The latest leak suggests that the handset will be arriving in mid-April. The price is still unknown.

It’s worth to note that Sprint has yet to make the purple variant of the Galaxy S3 official. If it’s really hitting stores next month, we should be getting an announcement in the coming weeks. How do you like the new color?
