Samsung Announces New Colors For the Galaxy S3 – Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black, and Titanium Grey

This morning, Samsung makes official four new colors for the Galaxy S3. Previously, we had already known about the red and black versions, but it looks like Sammy has had another two that the public was never aware of. As of now, the four new colors are Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black, and Titanium Grey. Of course, each color was hand selected by Samsung to match the overall “Inspired by Nature” theme and comes with its very own back story. 

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.”

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.”

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.”

So far, we are still awaiting details as to which color will go to which country and Samsung states that color availability will depend solely on country and carrier/retailer.

Personally, I think the Titanium Grey variant is incredibly sexy. Which new color is your favorite?

    I want the amber brown….. when is available in usa?……

  • Cliffy444

    You can only get the 32 meg of ram / Titanium version in the International version; and paying full retail is something that does NOT appeal to me; as I just ordered 2 16 meg handsets in Pebble blue.

    There are Android users and I-Phone losers.

  • jaydub110

    Still like my white S3 !!!

  • Tryshell Mark

    Garnet Red thank you

  • Scottyb112

    Damnnnn…. I would of got that Grey one in a heartbeat over this Blue. but you don’t see much with the cover on

  • Isaiah Lawrence

    This just in: Apple just filed a patent for “Everything” lets just hope it doesn’t go through.

  • I love the Titanium Grey one. Just got one in pebble blue so I guess I’ll just wait for the housings to be available.


    It will be hard explaining to my wife why I just had to have theTitanium Grey over my white S3…

  • Tyler

    If my Galaxy Nexus wasn’t sitting next to me right now I would totally get a red GS3

    • TheOiulkj

      If my Galaxy Nexus wasn’t sitting next to me right now I would totally go and get it.

  • MrEnglish

    Might want to consider a new design too. heh

  • Trueblue711

    How funny would it be if Samsung is doing this in case apple ever releases multi colored phones. They can then sue Apple for stealing their trade dress!

    • Adam Koueider

      On the contrary Samsung have done this for quite a while the Samsung Galaxy S2 came out in Black then white and then Red and for the cutsy girls pink….
      So not exactly ground breaking but TITANIUM GREY IS SEXY!!!

  • kidheated

    I concur, the grey is the best… but the brown is also very interesting. Never thought there would ever be a brown phone. Now that’s some “skin” color equality for your ass : )

    • tehserver

      There’s generally a good reason why you haven’t seen them. Remember the brown Zune?

  • RedNeck

    I’d like the grey battery cover on my pebble blue


  • God Damn it, why do they always do that, I want the grey :/

  • jim

    got my wife this phone and its very impressive,now that you can unlock and root it,which she never will lol , there is no reason to have a nexus,its better in every way

  • André Madrid

    For me, color doesn’t matter, really…

    • balthuszar

      i agree…its what’s on the inside that matters…not what’s on the outside

  • paul_cus

    Must hand it to Samsung on the colors used. Very classy.

  • Art Holguin

    I prefer the gray I also have to send my phone in for screen replacement I wonder if color change would be an option.

  • streetlightman

    why dont they just release all the colors at the same time? I’m sure that no one is still there saying “gee, i’d get the galaxy s3 over the iPhone if it was in red”

  • MafiaMM

    Black or Silver for me. What’s with the weird names.

    “Can I see the silver one?” “Oh sir do you mean the Titanium Grey one” ” -_- “

  • MikeSaver

    Yo, does Rajon Rondo got a Galaxy Nexus in this picture or what?

  • Nicholassss

    Ireally dig the grey. But Ithink if Ihad to choose id still go with the white.

  • PhillipCun

    I would buy the black then back covers in different colors. WIN WIN WIN. I honestly wished the front was just all black with no logos (similar to the Gnex). It would be super clean.

    • PC_Tool

      That would be awesome.

    • Adam Koueider

      Unfortunately lets look at what happened to the Gnex banned for being rectangular…
      Samsung put their logo on the front of the device so idiots like isheep would recognise that this is an EPIC GS3 not a ‘NEW BIG IPHONE’

      • PhillipCun

        The Gnex wasn’t banned for being rectangular, it was banned because of the way Google Now’s unified search

        • Adam Koueider

          On the contrary Google Now was yet to be created but yes it was Unified search that got it in the hot water. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple would sue Samsung if they took the logo off

  • Fattie McDoogles

    I love the Amber Brown and Titanium Grey

  • Any word on Verizon getting any of these colors?

  • “Oh man is that titanium”


    “Wait its plastic….”

    “About that”

  • dark_funk

    I still like Pebble Blue the best out of the whole lineup, but Titanium Grey is a close 2nd. Very nice color.

  • Matthew

    The red one needs to be Verizon or I’m going to lose all faith.

  • wowzers very sexy

  • MKader17

    My favorite would be an all black front with a grey back… Not sure why

    *Looks at G-Nex*

  • J.D. P

    I’d prefer Jelly Bean over more colors.

  • kixofmyg0t

    So Motorola releases the RAZR in different colors and everyone flips out. “ZOMGBBQ MOTOFAIL!”

    Samsung releases the S3 in different colors and everything is ok?

    I dont get it.

    • frankandsimple

      that’s because Samsung gives Fandroids exactly what they want… Cheap rip offs with gigantic screens that inundate the market once every 3 months.

      • fixxmyhead

        hey at least they listen to there customers better than moto. locked bootloaders and now the root check

    • fixxmyhead

      moto is garbage thats why the phone sucks compared to the s3

    • paul_cus

      I was thinking the same thing.

    • well that’s droid-life regulars for you, hypocrisy(among other things) incarnate

    • itznfb

      That’s because the RAZR is still ugly. The SIII is sexy and even sexier with color options.

  • Balthuszar

    Where’s all the complaining about this like there was was when moto did this?

    • Jeremy Bardrof

      Maybe because Moto’s colors were awful, and the phone still looked like crap.

      • balthuszar

        so your defence is that you didnt like the colors of the razr, and you like the colors of the gsIII? how come the screaming when moto did this was that they should have released them all at the same time, not a word was said about the color? and now all the sudden samsung did it, and it’s because of the color choice? really

        • Jeremy Bardrof

          Yeah, the late announcement still sucks, agreed there. Still though, the Razr “colors” were just a band around the phone, I still think Moto colors are a slight gimmick. The S3 colors to me at least look a lot better. That said, It would be better if they stopped playing the staggered release game.

    • PC_Tool

      I agree. If they were planning on this, they should have announced, or better yet, released them all at the same time.

    • Adam Koueider

      WHYYYYY SAMSUNG WHYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Should of released all colours at the same time they should have but here is the probable thing maybe some people who bought the RAZR weren’t entirely happy with there phone. Then when a new colour came out that they liked and might have made the phone complete they had already bought the phone hence the rage!!!!!!! Probably most S3 users are satisfied with their phone both internally and externally (me excluded should of bought the PEBBLE BLUE) and not many people were not buying the phone because of the colour choices…..

  • J.D. P

    I’d prefer Jelly Bean over more colors…

    • Anon

      I’d prefer an OEM car dock and bedside dock. Now that I’ve had a phone with both (whether you like or hate Motorola, they do accessories well), I can’t go back.

      • J.D. P

        I have the OEM bedside dock. It’s available. As for the car dock, I had to go with the ibolt, which is pretty kick ass. Still, yeah, I miss the dock’s from my Droid X.

      • I just bought a S3 today, couldn’t decide on a dock and couldn’t see paying $65, so I ended up buying a $20 universal dock on Amazon… Kinda lame, but whattya do

      • Columbus

        Should just buy the car dock for the Samsung Infuse 4G from AT&T on sale for $17. It works perfectly with the Samsung S3 and offers auxiliary audio output through the USB charger connector. Just doesn’t have cut outs for the flash and speaker phone which you don’t need if you’re attaching to car stereo… and it has the camera cut out.

        It’s an awesome dock… better than any OEM one will be I’m sure.

  • J Dub

    Ehh….maybe the black one. I’ll stick by my original statement of the white (or black now) will look good with any case on it. I went naked for a while and dropped my phone the other day and thought “Time to put the case back on.”

  • Hothfox

    I liked the white one better than the blue one. I’d still go for that, but I also liked the brown, black, and gray, in that order.

  • New colors. Same cheap plastic body

    • PC_Tool

      New Samsung Article…same lame, pointless trolling.

    • Adam Koueider

      Glass shatters, Metal dents but plastic, plastic lasts for ever my friend

  • Sizzurp

    Brown is FIREEEEEEE
    Grey would be the second option.
    But that Brown almost makes it look like wood, seriously awesome!

  • Murphy

    They shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am Titanium!

  • Apple invented selling a product in multiple colors. Once again Samsung copies Apple. 😛



    • Hmm ok so selling a car in different colors is copying apple too? What about shoes? Houses? Cases? You’re point is invalid and stupid.

      • Your sarcasm detector is broken.

      • itznfb

        Just wait till Apple starts suing car mfg’s, shoe companies, home builders…. then who’s point will be invalid and stupid?

  • Sirx

    I would stain the hell outta my furniture just to sit that Amber Brown on top!

    Also, do any of these names sound like they were inspired by a Gentleman’s Club instead… :-/

  • Kyle Miller

    Amber Brown is nice.

    • fixxmyhead

      wow u like the poop colored one

      • PC_Tool

        Wow. You have the maturity of a 3 year-old.

        • mustbepbs

          Oh please, big boy, it was pretty funny. No need to flex your “maturity” on the Internet.

          • fixxmyhead

            tell it

          • PC_Tool

            Sorry, man. The word “poop” stopped being funny to me decades ago.

            Glad to see you’re still clinging to your inner-toddler though. 😉

          • mustbepbs

            My dad can beat up your dad, you big dummy.

          • PC_Tool

            Of course he can. My Dad is dead, you insensitive clod!

            (Is that still a meme? I haven’t been on /. for ages…)

          • Scottyb112


        • fixxmyhead

          so, besides its an ugly color. brown? wtf. even brown clothing is ugly

          • PC_Tool

            Sure. Brown can be ugly. No argument there.

    • Agreed, it looks very nice.

    • itznfb

      Indeed. I’ll take two.

  • Mack

    I have to agree, the gray one is pretty awesome.

  • If Titanium Grey comes to VZW, I will be ditching my Thunderbolt for it.

    • Black Roger

      lol Thunderbolt!

  • moelsen8

    “inspired by not wanting to get into another lawsuit with crapple”

  • BSweetness

    The Titanium Grey is by far the sexiest of the bunch.

    • Diablo81588

      Agreed, its the same color as my car 😛
