Samsung Galaxy S III to be offered in black

Samsung Galaxy S III to be offered in black
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.

Maybe black with deep red accents for and black with electric blue. That would definitely be a great color scheme for me and piano black for people who want it to go with their suits in a corporate environment.

Black is so common now, I'd rather choose pebble blue, newest addition of colours for a smartphone. Let's wait what dress is galaxy note 2 wearing in it's nearing launch.

Black should have been in the first round of colors...I don't know what they were thinking with Pebble Blue, Red and White...although the white one looks good..Black and White should have been the first colors and then follow on colors of blue and red

How do you have to work on color variants? ITS A COLOR not changing hardware or design just the color come on. If they're skeptical about a certain colors sales rate release and small amount and see what the interest is.

I have the pebble blue and it is very sharp looking in person, although black goes with everything!

Ugly (but great) phone in any color. if Samsung was on par with Motorola in the looks/build one could touch them.

I like the Samsung Galaxy S III white more because of better elegant form factor. Especially when you look at it from all sides you can easily see the perfection. In this video you can see it from all sides: Come and bear with me, I like it more when its white version.
