Samsung Galaxy S3 colors

Samsung this morning announced four new colors (OK, three new colors and the black one we already knew about) for the Galaxy S3. Officially, what you see here is "Amber Brown," "Garnet Red," "Sapphire Black" and "Titanium Gray."

The new colors, Samsung says, follow in the "designed by nature" theme that's surrounded this phone from the outset. Each of the colors is said to "take their inspiration from the Earth's richest materials." (Jerry's hoping for a beer-colored phone already.)

Samsung stresses, however, that the availability of colors will depend on your country, retailer and carrier.

*Nomz* That brushed silver/ gunmetal needs to be used more often.

nipcarlover says:

That silver is the only one that is good..

P.S I don't think Sapphires are Black..

Linebarrel86 says:

Your right. Their actually blue. Maybe it's an oversight.

secano says:

*You're. *They're. My job here is done.

ICU812 says:

lol... +1

hoosiercub says:

Sapphires can be colorless as well, coming in shades of deep grey to black. ;-)

Getting an S3 next month from big red so I hope one of these shows up before then. That gunmetal is looking prettay, prettay, prettay good.

I want to get an S3 on Verizon but I have heard a lot of people talking about the sim card not detected issue. Have you heard about this at all?

Rfp5980 says:

No problems here with my VZW GS3 SIM card. Actually no problems at all. Get one I love mine

prodaytrade says:

No issue with mine.

Upgrading from 3G to 4G device:
Activate SIM card first by calling the Verizon number provided. Once that is done, insert SIM card into device and power it on for device activation.

Transitioning between 4G devices:
Insert existing SIM card and power on device for device activation.

I upgraded from a Droid Incredible (3G) and had to activate the SIM card with Verizon. Otherwise, the activation would fail.

Best of luck and enjoy the Galaxy S3!

That amber brown looks sexy and professional.

dukeblue91 says:

If you are a UPS employee maybe :o)

inyrules says:

Why can't manufacturers ever have color options at launch? Why is it so difficult?

curley says:

I know, right. That Gun Metal would be in my pocket right now. Oh Well.

Why would a carrier carry all these colors? . . . what if the majority of people don't want the Brown for example? THey're just going to sit in a warehouse

Shadowriver says:

more cost and they not sure how it's gonna sell.

exactly. I already have a S3 with a two year contract. What the hell I care now for

derek5l says:

Black... Finally.

Synycalwon says:

And they're all finger print magnets! :( Myself, I prefer black but in a soft touch material, not glossy and slippery (don't say put a case on it, prefer naked).

Torisen1 says:

Where is the purple?!!!

Go Vikings!

21plays says:

the pebble blue is already out:)

corymcnutt says:

Yeah, but it looks more black, than blue...I would like a true blue color.

If they made a Vikings themed one it would probably just fall apart at a crucial moment.

Go Pack Go!!

Torisen1 says:

My name is Inigo Montoya, you insult my team, prepare to die.

Knyte says:

A coal black, slate grey, brick red, and s*^t brown would be good for the "no fingerprint magnet" alternatives right? all colors are natural right?

The titanium looks good and since the pic is only showing the back of the phone, this would be nice if it were a battery cover.

Now add to that no matter the color it would be in a case anyway..

I also agree about having these available at launch of the device instead of coming out after release..

I was excited to see black, but once seeing the titanium grey, I think that one won me over.

Titanium Gray, where have you been all my life?

CeluGeek says:

That brown one is seriously making me doubts my conviction to phones with keyboards.

QBert says:

I just hope we can get replacement back covers in these colors. I'm thinking they (except the brown) will look good with my pebble blue.

Aatrek says:

Ah, hell. Hope we can at least buy the colored battery covers soon - that 'titanium' cover would look pretty sweet on my white GS3.

jameslepable says:

Sorry have to be that guy its "colour" :-P. In all seriousness titanium silver looks the sexy.

Gator352 says:

When I bought my S3 I had 2 options, blue or white. So I chose the blue. Now after seeing the grey I want to ring Samsungs freakin neck for bringing these out months later. I guess it pays to wait sometimes.


It does pay to wait... however, some people that bought into the S3 had to do so to keep unlimited data =)

AnnDroid says:

I'd like purple, but I'll take the red too!

rovex says:

I like the grey, but the brown is horrible. Its basically fake wood, which i know is popular in the US, but is cheap and tacky everywhere else.

engineerga says:

I think it looks more like antiqued brass, like faucets and door knobs are popular in now. I don't see wood grain there at all.

NateBoii says:

They all seem to have a nice appeal to me, yes even the brown. So thats six different colors, pretty damn sweet.

When do we get a list of which carriers/retailers will offer which colors, and when they will be available?? I'm eligible for an upgrade next month, but I might wait for a while to get they grey, if it's available on my carrier.

warlike1919 says:

i thought the red color was already on at&t?

engineerga says:

Neato. But aren't people just going to put a cover on it anyway and cover up the colors? Like my RAZR MAXX - I couldn't give a crap what color it is, since I keep a CruzerLite Androidified cover on it. I only see the front and the buttons.


I'll second that. For some, the S3 is too slim to not put a case on it. Even though my extended battery makes it feel better in the hand, it still feels naked without a case.

kb2755 says:

Wish I held out for Titanium Gray :(

cjb44 says:

Does the color really matter than much? I like adding some color to my S3, but I did that via the case I choose.

shahid99 says:

Silver and black should have been available at launch . Insted pebble blue even tho blue is good too wish i had eaither silver or black . Stupid samsung always late on everything

shamatuu says:

What about green? i bet it will look cool in green.

CeluGeek says:

It it's a dark green like Forest Green then yes, I like. If it's a lighter green like Lime Green, then no thanks.

Synycalwon says:

What about pink (for the ladies and certain gents)? ;P

ilaifire says:

I know. If they're going with the "designed by nature" theme I would think a forest/emerald green must be at the top of that list.

bigbryant23 says:

I can not wait for these colors to come to the U.S. I'm loving all of them.

Asterisk says:

Brown looks attractive.

jontalk says:

Beer colored? LOL... I still love my garnet red phone though the Titanium Gray looks good too :)

davidnc says:

I dont see a white one ,,,, wait its already out , lol :p

smooth3006 says:

Just got a brand new free galaxy s 3 16gb from verizon for some issues i was having. To say the least im happy.

Two words.. Clear Case... Titanium FTW :)

dmmarck says:

Ewww be creative Cyber! lol

NateBoii says:

Exactly @ cyber, clear case and even if not a clear case. You still have to take the case off and enjoy the color of your choice. Options are always nice,
thats the big deal about color. Even with a case that hides color, you know your phone is just a
bit unique. So koodos to colors and yes more

I hope samsung patented Brown and Gray. Suck it, apple.
