Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rose Gold edition now official

We can now add the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the list of smartphones riding the golden bandwagon as the Korean company just announced several new color options for its premium phablet. Known as Rose Gold Black and Rose Gold White, these color variants are complemented by a stylish golden finish around their sides, sprinkled with gold accents sparkling on the handset's back and front. These models are designed to look good both on their own and in tandem with the Rose Gold edition of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

In addition, a Merlot Red Samsung Galaxy Note 3 model has been unveiled as well. However, it has not been treated to a gold-colored finish.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rose Gold edition will go on sale in China later this month. Further markets will follow suit in the near future, although we have no details as to whether a US release is on Samsung's agenda.

Gold and black stands out the gold and white. Michael Jackson with black and gold looks much better than white and gold. You people dislike things that looks imminent, but prefer dull colors, like white and gold....?

Looks cool but only exposed if you don't use a case. They should find another location for the trim that can be seen with a case.

Wait a minute. It's got gold trim? Apple made a gold iPhone. THEY'RE COPYING AGAIN! Yes, that's how you sound.

Samsung made "gold" long before Apple. Even Galaxy S4 with gold color, was before Apple. THEY'RE COPYING AGAIN! By the way, Apple's color was not "gold" but "champagne". But the menial tech media of ifans, rename it to "gold". :)

What an achievement! They managed to make the ugly Note3 even uglier.

That's subjective. Regardless, there are some of us who value function over form.

if you want a good looking phone try the HTC One or Iphone 5S/C, we still love the note 3 for what it is.. and not many can produce a phone quite like it.

I think the original Black Note 3 is the best looking phone on the market. With gold it's gawd awful.

They didn't do the justice with the rose gold name, and I am sure those rose accents would look better on the burnt sienna/red one.

Red one looks cool and sexy, but the black one is damn ugly.

Black, silver combination of Note3 is good. I meant this Black, gold combination is ugly.

Every "premium" non-plastic material you own is super cheap to their manufacturers. You've simply been fooled generation after generation to mold your subjectivity into what the companies want you to believe is "premium." Want premium mumbo jumbo? Buy an iPhone made with real gold, or a Blackberry made of titanium. Now that's premium that backs up its price. Heck, that is also incredibly subjective on my part - move along! Troll got his bridge back!
