New Galaxy S III Colours announced by Samsung


Samsung has revealed the addition of 4 new colours of Galaxy S III’s to join the existing Marble White and Pebble Blue, the colours are still based on Samsung’s continuing theme of ‘Inspired by Nature’ the colours announced are Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black and Titanium Grey. The availability of colours will vary depending on the country and carrier/retailer according to the website but they are pretty nice looking.

Each colour has been given it’s own description :

Amber Brown : Inspired by the mysterious and unique gem, which was believed to sustain the secrets of the earth inside it. The deep, rich colour of Amber Brown redefines the classic colour and emphasizes the beauty of the advanced organic design of the GALAXY S III.


Garnet Red : Rare and special, the gemstone Almandite Garnet was worn as an amulet by the ancient Egyptians who believed the stone contained protective powers. Garnet Red holds the delicateness and elegance of Almandite Garnet, in line with the GALAXY S III’s soft curves and smooth lines.


Sapphire Black : A colour that adds the mysterious power of dark stones to the refined, deep sophistication of the colour black, Sapphire Black is inspired by the stones used by the ancient people of India and Persia for protection, with the belief they strengthened one’s willpower.


Titanium Grey : Inspired by the colour grey as a symbol for intelligence, insight and curiosity, all of which are embodied within the design of the GALAXY S III. Titanium Grey expresses the feeling of modernity and wisdom bringing a futuristic element to the handset.

Schlocky descriptions aside, I’ve always preferred black, but gee that Red is looking pretty damn awesome right now. We’ll be following up with Samsung Australia and the carriers tomorrow to see if they are aware of plans to bring these to the Australian market but for now you can discuss which you’d prefer if all 6 colour options were available in Australia.

Since I saw the red on AT&T, I wanted that red T_T It’s the kind of shade of red that I like haha
But I would have gotten black but unfortunately I already have a blue S3.
