Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rose Gold editions coming to South Korea on January 4, international availability to follow?

Back in the beginning of December, Samsung announced plans to don its premium Galaxy Note 3 phablet with something a tad fancier, and thus the Rose Gold black/white editions were born. The snazzy-looking devices sport a golden finish on their profile and accents, such as the camera ring and the stylus, are also recolored. Internally, though, it's the very same gadget in all of its aspects.

The fancy editions were initially aimed at China, though Sammy promised that a wider availability was to follow, and it is sticking to its word, as its home market of South Korea has now been reported to see a copy or two of the new editions as soon as January 4th. This, of course, obviously raises the infinitely more interesting question as to whether (and when) we can expect to see the gadget start a transcontinental trek en route for the U.S. and Europe. Unfortunately, at least as of this writing, nothing has been made explicit. The only piece of information we have is Samsung's promise to bring the new edition to markets according to their particular preferences. What markets those may be remains to be seen.

......I really hate when they release phones in different colours well after their initial launch they should think about the colours and they should release it all at once

A color won't increase the price from the original one, it's just a color edition. No way Samsung will increase the price just because of a new color edition.

Whoa that Rose gold black edition looks so damn classy. I wish I was a grown-up and have a good job to buy this. D:

great looking phone aside from the rear camera imo (that camera design never grew on me sadly). I would like to see a navy colored one or a bright teal-ish color on that with silver accents!
