Leaked Image Shows Black Samsung Galaxy S III in the Works?
If true, would a black Samsung Galaxy S III be a universal color option or a carrier-limited bonus?
The quick-selling Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone might be off to a good start – with a sea of good reviews behind it – but there’s one thing the device definitely lacks when compared to its Apple-based competition.
On most U.S. carriers, you’re restricted to one of two options for your smartphone at the time of purchase: (boring ol’) white or Samsung’s “Pebble Blue” shade. AT&T subscribers can choose the illustrious and unique “Garnet Red” for their Samsung Galaxy S III but, for the most part, it’s currently a two-color world for Samsung’s smartphone.
While, yes, that’s the same number of colors as what you could select from when purchasing an Apple iPhone, Samsung doesn’t yet give its customers the ability to purchase a sleek, black version of the Galaxy S III.
The key word in that sentence being, “yet.”
A new report from Android Police indicates that this option might soon be available to potential Galaxy S III owners. A leaked shot of Samsung’s product database contains a listing for a “Samsung Galaxy S3 Black” version of the phone. And this is the same product database that was used to fuel an earlier leak, which indicated that the Galaxy S III was going to launch in white and blue.
In other words, the database has a pretty good track record when it comes to Galaxy S III colors (one for one!)
If that’s not enough to convince you, however, Android Police’s David Ruddock offers up one other piece of evidence that, combined with the product database leak, makes the eventual announcement of a black Galaxy S III even more likely. And this one’s from Samsung itself.
Recent images posted to Samsung’s Facebook page as part of an Olympics-themed promotion show off a Samsung Galaxy S III that looks very, very black.
If that’s not an indication that Samsung is for-sure going with that color in a future iteration of the phone, it’s instead, “such a poorly color adjusted version of the Pebble Blue version that Samsung should probably fire the Photoshopper responsible,” Ruddock writes.
