Black Samsung Galaxy S III appears on T-Mobile: glossy, gorgeous
The Samsung Galaxy S III might have already turned into a classic with over 10 million units sold, but interestingly it doesn't have a classic black version. Samsung put a lot of effort into the colors, even claiming to have invented its own shade of blue in the Galaxy S III, and it also ships the device in white and most recently garnet red. Now, a fourth, black version of the SGS III has appeared on T-Mobile, confirming all earlier ambiguous images.

Previously, we doubted that the angle and shades could have mislead us into thinking that a photographed pebble blue Galaxy S III looks like a black one, but here the black is very clearly seen. The back is very glossy, it almost looks slippery, and it looks gorgeous.

It seems unlikely that T-Mobile would change the color of the original Galaxy S III, so stay tuned - a black version is coming. We just don't know when, but we guess it'd be sooner rather than later.

The problem with black is that the cracks in the body will be easier to discern. Samsung's poor quality control is going to come back and bite it in the butt.

It's pretty cool. Kinda reminds me of the Palm Pre/ Pixie smartphones.

Man, Samsung copied the Palm Pre/Pixie too! Have they run out of ideas. Honestly to me it looks like the iPhone 3G. Anyway gonna wait and see what HTC has up it's sleeves with the One x+.

we understand what you think, but i think it is the photoshop problem, the real one, you can imagine the white version has dyed into black, but for me it still ugly, haha

6. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

the back of it is what I really found........ummm i dont wanna say ugly (even though i already did lol) but it looks kinda "weird" in a way.......Kinda like a black pebble or something you know what i mean?

Maybe its because I've seen this phone in white a million times but this looks kinda weird. Does anyone else think It looks kinda ...chubby from the back in black.

Hm... I think I would prefer the white over black... The glossy black look made the phone look really plastic looking even though it is plastic.

I still think the GS3 isn't an attractive phone, but I think the glossy black finish is kind of good looking.
