Samsung hints that Garnet Red won’t be the only new paint job for the S3

Samsung hints that Garnet Red won’t be the only new paint job for the S3
As we told you yesterday, AT&T will begin taking pre-orders for the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S III in a brand new color on July 15. In addition to the Marble White and Pebble Blue Galaxy S IIIs available worldwide, AT&T customers now have the option of sporting a distinct paint job in the S3’s new Garnet Red.

This obviously got a lot of people thinking, “What other colors might Sammy be cooking up?” While we don’t exactly know what other looks the S3 will be sporting just yet, Samsung did hint that it is, in fact, working on some other variants.

A Samsung UK spokesperson responded to Pocket-lint’s inquiry about other color schemes by saying; “We will be announcing potential colour variants in due course.”

It is safe to say that a lot of people are bored with black rectangles. That was very evident by all the positive response to the design of Nokia’s Lumia 800 and 900, which were both offered in an array of unconventional colors. While we could do without Samsung’s ridiculous names, we are super excited to see a flagship handset get a splash of color.

So what do you think? Do you like the idea of manufacturers giving you more choice in color? If so, what color would love to see the Samsung Galaxy S III in next?

None of them are upto my expectations. A Pure Black version would be pretty awesome.

Well I'm on Verizon and have the HTC Rezound, but it wouldn't hurt to see some other phones with a similar color scheme.

For me, nothing can replace nokia. It's a legendary company. Even though samsung topped nokia in terms of everything, nokia is still nokia. Even now. Nokia is still nokia, just manipulated and controlled by a new CEO.

What are you, twelve? I guess you don't remember all of the phones WAY before the iPhone that came in all kinds of colors. Just another example of a clueless little person who has no idea of what they are writing about.

Pink RAZR comes to mind. I remember AT&T/Cingular charging an extra $50 just for the color, and women bought it.

Unless you're printing for retail commercial or something, the cheap HP copy machines at Wal-mart suit most at-home needs.

I think everyone's seen the brown Zune, thus lesson learned. Brown cars? Back in the 70's and early 80's.... *shudders*
