With the Galaxy S3, Samsung's proven it's not afraid of adding a bit of color to its smartphone line-up. A few months back, the manufacturer debuted new colors for its Galaxy S3, including garnet red, amber brown and sapphire black. And next year it seems two more Samsung devices might be due a fresh coat of paint, specifically the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 Mini.

According to reports from SamMobile, which has proved pretty accurate with Samsung leaks in the past, the Korean manufacturer will introduce three new colors for the Note 2 early next year, and the S3 Mini in December or early 2013.

The site's sources say the S3 Mini will appear in "Titan Gray, Garnet Red and Onyx Black," while the Note 2 will get "Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine." The change in nomenclature for the blue and red versions of the Note 2 suggests these might look a bit different to "Pebble Blue" and "Garnet Red"-finished Galaxy S3s.

SamMobile says Samsung will showcase the new colors at Mobile World Congress 2013, although given the alleged release timing, we think there's a chance they might also make a surprise appearance at CES in January. Either way, we'll live from both both shows over the next few months.

Fresh coat of paint for Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3 Mini in 2013?


This is really exciting news, because I really want the Galaxy Note 2 but I really wanted it in red, and Ruby Wine sounds close enough. I have been really excited for the Note 2 since my coworker at DISH told me about it. He has the Galaxy S3, but I really want to be able to watch live TV and records with the DISH Remote Access app and the bigger screen will obviously make it much easier to watch. I am really excited now, so I think that I will wait for the red phone!

by the time they come out the phone won't be as new and latest so I personally would have less of an urge to buy it. I will either buy a phone in the first 90 days or not at all. With how outdated stuff gets so quickly and carriers wanting you to commit 2 years for getting a phone I just find committing to a 6 month old phone not logical.
