It has only been a couple of months since Samsung announced and released the Galaxy S III. Successor to the hugely popular Galaxy S II, this smartphone has been able to do well in the market up till now. Some even reckon it to be the only worthy competitor for Apple’s upcoming smartphone. Originally launched in just two colors, it has now been confirmed that Samsung will be releasing black Galaxy S III which is expected to be publicly available from next month.
As previously mentioned, the Galaxy S III has been doing quite well in the market. Since the date of its launch, the Korean manufacturer has sold over two million units of this smartphone. Never mind the fact that the company went ahead with a phased roll out around the world, the device has still managed to garner impressive consumer interest from all corners of the globe.
There was considerable chatter about the design of this device as many believed that the Galaxy S III had been designed by lawyers so as to prevent any legal action from Apple, which is furiously challenging Samsung in courts all around the world. Whatever Samsung has been accused of infringing on in the past by Apple, seems to have been thoughtfully avoided from inclusion in the Galaxy S III by Samsung. The smartphone was released in Marble White and Pebble Blue colors initially, though now it has been confirmed that Galaxy S III in black is about to hit the market soon.
UK smartphone retailer MobileFun already has a product page up for black Galaxy S III. Apart from the color, there are no changes and this particular unit is the same International GT-i9300 model as the other two colors. The device is not available for pre-order to purchase right now though the retailer claims that it will be in stock in the next 4 to 6 months.
For most Android enthusiasts, the Samsung Galaxy S III is a must have smartphone. It comes with a quadcore processor, a mammoth 4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8 megapixel camera on the back as well as 1GB of RAM. It ships with Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and can be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Those who have already purchased this smartphone are unlikely to buy another one in black, however those who have held out or have recently made up their minds about acquiring one of these will definitely be happy that they soon will have three color choices instead of two. Moreover, most consumers prefer smartphones in black color.
