Closeup shot of the purple Samsung Galaxy S III for Sprint appears

We know Samsung has something something special for its Sprint version of the Galaxy S III, namely a chassis painted in purple (or violet, or whatever that is) color.

Now a closeup shot of the candy-colored Galaxy S III for the nation's third largest carrier appeared, revealing the front and back in full detail. With the Galaxy S 4 launch just around the corner, Samsung is breathing new life in last year's bestseller, and issuing it in a new color in addition to Black, Red, Blue, White, Grey and Brown, is as good a way as any.

A real way to improve it would be to put Verizon LTE on it.. Oh wait, I mean Sprint is awesome.

if you see anyone w/ this phone, you'll know they chose it over the GS4

I don't understand your point. Lots of S2's were sold after the introduction of the S3. The iPhone 4S still sells really well today. Not everyone needs the latest & greatest.
