Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 Mini to come in 3 new colors

When the Galaxy S3 came out, it was launched in only two colors, but Samsung later introduced the 2012 flagship smartphone in several new colors. Well, that seems to be the norm now at Samsung, as Sammobile reports that both the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 Mini will similarly be getting new paint jobs.

The Galaxy S3 Mini will be seen in the Titan Gray, Garnet Red, and Onyx Black colors, with the shipping date of these new color variants expected to be some time in December or early 2013. The Note 2, on the other hand, will be seen in Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine, and will ship some time next year, after Samsung shows them off at the Mobile World Congress exhibition.

I’m kind of disappointed that Samsung has chosen to move away from using a full black color on their devices, which goes really well with the intensely deep blacks on the Super AMOLED displays that Samsung uses. But then again, I’m sure there are some who prefer these offbeat colors as well, though Samsung would do better to introduce them right at the start with future devices.

Any of these new colors take your fancy, or will you need to see them on the devices before deciding?
