It looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be coming in black and white, just like the Samsung Galaxy S4, but it also looks like those might be joined by a pink Galaxy Note 3 just about a month after the device begins shipping out to consumers.
Earlier this year, we saw Samsung shift from blue and white to black and white for the Samsung Galaxy S4, a move that mirrored Apple’s offerings. Apple appears poised to deliver a gold iPhone 5S alongside the white and black models and it looks like Samsung will be drawing a page out of the iPhone 5S’ book. Sort of.
SamMobile claims that the Galaxy Note 3 will be initially offered in two colors, white and black, and that those colors will be the options available to consumers shortly after launch. The device is expected to go on sale almost immediately after its September 4th launch event. In addition, it looks like Samsung may release a pink Galaxy Note 3 just about a month after the device begins shipping putting a release date somewhere in October.
This is a bit of a surprise as Samsung typically takes much longer to release addition colors for its devices. It’s also a bit of a surprise to see pink mentioned as the third addition color that will be coming to consumers right off the bat as it typically is a color that arrives after colors like red, blue and brown.
It’s not clear where the pink Galaxy Note 3 will be headed but we’ve seen Samsung’s other pink devices emerge for select markets around the world. Carriers in the United States have not been keen on offering the color so the odds of a release are slim.
Last year’s Galaxy Note 2 arrived in gray and white meaning black and white will be a bit of a departure. It’s unclear if the black and white will mirror the colors found on the Galaxy S4 but it seems likely.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to debut on September 4th ahead of IFA 2013 with a release date pegged for September as well. The device is thought to have a 5.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and more to help it compete with the likes of the iPhone 5S which is also expected to debut in early September.
