Blue Samsung Galaxy S III appears on video in a different shade
After we heard from Samsung that it wasn't satisfied with the quality of the darker Samsung Galaxy S III battery covers and delayed the Pebble Blue version to replace them, we are now treated with a video of what the phone might look like when the darker version returns to the retail shelves in a week or two.

Granted, the lighting sources used in the video presuppose all kinds of weird color effects, but still the back cover looks to be a different shade than what we are used to so far. The blue seems to have a gunmetal hue, and even looks dark grey under this lighting, until the phone is tilted a few times in the video and the color reveals its underlying moody blue. 

The German source who filmed the new hue says that this will be the final production color, which is to be called Metallic Blue now, so we are staying tuned for the eventual confirmation.
