Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is arguably the highest end Android phone currently on the market by sheer virtue of the fact that it’s the only one with 3 GB of RAM. Whether or note 3 GB of RAM is useful is another question altogether. Anyway, if you’re thinking of buying the Note 3, but you don’t want to buy one in white, black, or pink, then I have some good news to share. According to SamMobile, the company will release two new color variants early next year: red and white gold.
This isn’t the first time Samsung has done this. The Galaxy S4 is the best example of Samsung’s variant play at work. Launched in white and black, when the GS4 turned half a year old, Samsung added blue, pink, and purple options. Whether or not those variants sold isn’t really the point, they were made so that people can start talking about the S4 again.
Should you even buy the Note 3? That’s a hard question to answer. I’m currently testing one right now, and while I love the display, everything about it just isn’t very impressive to me. TouchWiz is starting to show its age, the camera isn’t as amazing as people on the internet say it is, and the stylus is actually a downgrade compared to the one in the Note II. What really kills it for me, though, is the price. For the price of a Note 3, you can get at least three Moto G phones.
That says a lot.
Update: And here’s the press release announcing the colors.
