Samsung Galaxy S III to be offered in black
Leaked screenshot of Carphone Warehouse's inventory page
Recent rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S III
would be available in black had turned out to be based on nothing more than photographs shown on Sammy's Facebook page that had apparently revealed a black variant of the sizzling hot Android handset. A closer look at the photos appeared to show a pebble blue model of the device that only looked black because of the lighting.
Last month, a Samsung official did hint that the company was working on adding more color options to the phone that has already sold in excess of 10 million units.
Now, there is evidence that a black model of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be offered and this evidence can't be so easily shrugged off. A screenshot of the inventory page for U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse shows a black color option listed for the Samsung Galaxy S III
. Before the Samsung Galaxy S III was a gleam in the Korean manufacturer's eye, a similar leak from Carphone Warehouse showed the unit available in black and pink in addition to the blue, white and red colors that the handset does come in. The red color is exclusive to AT&T customers
*Update* UK retailer MobileFun contacted us to let us know that it is expecting the black Galaxy S III in 4 to 6 weeks, at the same price as the other color versions.
