Samsung Galaxy S III gets four new color versions

Samsung Galaxy S III gets four new color versions
The Samsung Galaxy S III, the hottest Android flagship device on the market right now and in the past couple of months, is now officially getting four new colors. The Galaxy S III will soon start shipping in Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black and Titanium Grey, in addition to the existing Marble White and Pebble Blue versions.

The nature-inspired Samsung Galaxy S III is a gorgeous device and we’ve grown in fact really accustomed to and fond of the Hyperglaze finish on the plastic body. Samsung calls it “organic experience” and the same soft glazed plastic is used in the four new color versions. In reality, the Hyperglaze finish also creates the illusion of dual colors, adding more depth to the overall design.

Looking back at the four new colors, we’ve already seen two of them. First, the red one leaked out as an AT&T-exclusive and then black one surfaced around the Olympics. The other two Samsung managed to keep a secret - the titanium grey conveys a cold, business tone while the amber brown looks like the complete opposite with a very warm, cozy undertone. 

Samsung explains the meaning behind each of the colors and we've detailed it in the slideshow below, but let's just mention that brown is for classical, organic looks, red stands for delicateness and elegance, black - for deep sophistication and finally grey as a symbol for intelligence. 

Now, we wouldn't take it for granted that all four colors will arrive on all markets as Samsung warns that the availability depends on your country, carrier and/or retailer. We'll update you with more on the different colors availability as soon as we have those details.

Our personal favorite is the sapphire black, a classical color option that will stand the test of time. Check them all out below and don’t hesitate to also let us know which one you like best and why!

No specifics on availability yet! My guess is they would all be available unlocked, though, at some point in the future.

I'd rather get the black one because it goes well with the deep blacks on the AMOLED display.

Nope. You are not the only one. I would totally rock the brown. I'm pretty into the whole 70's fashion that brown was such a prominent part of... I would probably throw a woodgrain panel on that bad boy too.

My hope is that it'll have the same kind of deal as with blue where its shifts with the light! Imagine if it has reds and golds toppings out c:

Very somber colors. I'm glad they're introducing more colors (a la Nokia & a lot of other Asian OEMs) but none of them really grab the imagination or are very exciting. That said, if I had to have one, I'd get the dark gray one on the right

Still no green... What is up with every single phone manufacturer ever and the color green? Did they get in a fight or something?

Now that's Samsung's way of giving what people want - choice.
