Samsung: “Invented” Pebble Blue Color Slightly Delayed Due to Quality Standards

Samsung confirmed to UK retailer MobileFun that there is a 2-3 week delay for the Pebble Blue version of the Galaxy SIII, thanks to a need for it to meet the “highest internal quality standards.” Because Sammie essentially invented the color Pebble Blue and a special hyper-glaze material to go over top of it, only a short supply will be made available for now:

Samsung’s Galaxy SIII Pebble Blue version comes with a newly invented blue colour and special hyper-glaze material.

In order to meet the highest internal quality standards and to provide the best quality Galaxy SIII to customers, a short supply of Pebble Blue version is expected in some regions in the next 2-3 weeks.

Samsung is working hard to ensure that customers will get the Pebble Blue coloured devices as soon as possible.

That’s unfortunate, as the Pebble Blue version looks fantastic in person and is a nice contrast to the black and white phones we see time and time again. Hopefully they work out the quality issues and can start producing these at a high enough level for launches here in the States. They have a month to do it.

  • Did you know? Apple invented the colors white and black.
    On a related note, Apple is racist.

      I’m sure they would have been given less grief if they did it out of the gate and not releasing them many months later.

      • balthuszar

    Samsung has quality standards?

    • r0lct

      Unlike many of the commentators they do, the question is how high are they.

      Chinese kids in a sweat shop is quality standards. Just ask apple.

  • uh… I’m pretty sure I could take a screen shot of this phone and get the same color at Home Depot. Just sayin’

  • where were their quality standards when they released the nexus ?

  • Keith Norris

    Word, it was them and not nature? Interesting, Sammy you are the best.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Pretty pathetically arrogant – and a lame red herring reason – for them to insinuate they sprinkled some glitter into some blue paint and “invented” a color. Jesus.

      Anyway, If you read this, and watched their pompous release event, they certainly think they are the shizz.

    Silly Samsung. Don’t you know that Apple invented everything?

      I can see the lawsuit now:

      “Apple sues Samsung over designing a phone for human use. ”

        God created the world in 7 days and on the 8th day Apple created everything else.
