Verizon to get the Samsung Galaxy S III in Black & Brown
Since then, Samsung announced a few more colors would be joining the spectrum, including Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black, and Titanium Gray. We saw the garnet red color going to AT&T as an exclusive.
It now appears that Verizon will be receiving the sapphire black and amber brown colors "soon", according to their web site. All there is at the present time is an email sign-up form to be notified when the two new colors will be made available.
Rumor has it that both the sapphire black and amber brown colors will comes in the same 16GB and 32GB sizes that the current marble white and pebble blue models come in, and will also carry the same price tag of $199.99 and $249.99 with a 2-year contract.
With a slew of new phones coming to Verizon this holiday season, including the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD, Samsung Galaxy Note II, HTC DLX (Droid Incredible X), LG Optimus Blaze (Optimus G), and LG Spectrum II, we wonder if the two new colors of the Samsung Galaxy S III is enough to keep customers interested in buying one. Unfortunately, we have yet to hear new on the 64GB version of the Galaxy S III that was due out by the end of the year.

I think the black looks cool. I wish they'd launch the Note 2 in black as well

personally if i had a choice and if i even wanted an SIII i'd get the red one. o:

personal choice...goodness of android my friend! but red's too flashy for my taste .
So youd on't want an S3...what phone do you want then?

so true, so true.
my primary focus is this plethora of Nexus devices that are supposedly coming. my backup plan is the Razr HD. my Razr M will actually be here Friday. ;D

Brown? Really?? Sure, I wanna buy an electronic turd, please! lol

The brown one looks good.. but not in this picture. From the 4 new colors, the brown one actually looks the best.

To each their own my friend. I just personally don't see the brown being good unless they are going for a wood grain sort of look to it. Me being me I'd go with the red, or if there is a silver, that too.
I'll take your word for it, but this picture of the brown certainly doesn't do it any favors lol.

It looks to me like they are going for the wood grain look. Kind of classic looking. Im kind of digging it. Looks better than the black imo. Due for an upgrade now and am thinking about getting it but with the holiday season approaching, will wait and see what else comes out and see what the price drop will be on this thing.

Black is super Ugly, Brown is Okay. ive seen them here in Pak. they are being sold in all colors apart from Titanium Silver. ill recommend not to buy a Black at all. Pebble Blue is still the best color

You recommend to stay away from black? Why?

Black SIII doesn't look just as cool as Black SII, but still better than Pebble Blue. And there aren't any accessories for the Black one.

if its "amber" brown then it should favor more of a gold-ish brown right?

hey a golden turd is better than a turd......lolz

agree silver would have been a better choice then brown..

I actually like the amber brown one. Looks much better than the cheap looking blue one.

Black! Oh please the so common color is this really new?
15. lsutigers (Posts: 611; Member since: 08 Mar 2009)
I still think the white / blue are the best looking colors on the SGS3.

Sapphire Black somehow makes me think of a Samsung version of a Palm Pre. I'm more into Satin Black, preferably with some red accents (done tastefully).

So if Samsung decides to keep going on with their release of exclusive colors, then Sprint and or T-Mobile will get the Titanium Gray.

I hope these aren't exclusive, I really want a brown T-Mobile one

Give Sprint the "RAWRDragon" variant and maybe more customers would barge in for the GS3

Enough already! Do we really need more colors of this great device? Maybe next time they can launch it in all colors from the start.

Most companies never do this. More colors are released later to spur greater sales.
