Sprint Lands Exclusive Amethyst Purple Galaxy S3

Galaxy S3 Purple

This morning, Sprint and Samsung announced an exclusive new color for the Galaxy S3 called, amethyst purple. Oooh, pretty. It’s the same S3, 4.8″ display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, NFC, and that 2,100mAh battery.

According to the press release it is available starting today for $99 on a new to year agreement, so if you like purple and you like last year’s tech, head to Sprint right now.

    it could be bio-luminescent – I still hate exclusives.

  • If it was yellow I would have got why Sprint got this exclusive… but purple?

  • Dain Laguna

    i never want to hear complaints from dl comment sections on how they ‘just bought a phone and now its getting replaced.’

    seriously? the gs3 is obsolete? it cant run google apps anymore or play any games? ONLY the gs4 can?

    perspective people.

  • Hey great idea!!
    I always wanted a phone that made it look like i was talking to a grape.
    Maybe this is the winer’s special.


  • Jim McClain

    Who cares about this deal on a year old phone when the GS4 is ready to be realesed

  • I wish we would be the wine and brown Galaxy Note IIs

  • PhoenixPath

    Cute. Too bad it’s too close to the S4’s release to mean squat…

    What’s the point of carrier-exclusive COLORS? Is someone really going to choose Sprint over any other network over a phone color?

    • As much as I eat, breathe, sleep purple I would NEVER leave T-Mo for Sprint for this phone. I’ll search to see if I can buy if elsewhere. Just for purple ownership purposes of course.

        If you think Roy`s story is super…, four weeks ago my aunts girlfriend also brought home $8513 working fourteen hours a week an their house and the’re best friend’s aunt`s neighbour was doing this for eight months and easily made more than $8513 parttime on their labtop. use the guide here, — Gig60.ℂOM

  • You’d be surprised at how many people pick a cellphone for the color.

  • Daistaar

    I’m sure T-Mobile and MetroPCS are seething…

  • Austin Warren

    Tim242 will like this

    • Tim242

      Nope, I hate purple, and I hate Sprint. I’m glad you were thinking about me though : )

  • mustbepbs

    Excuse me while I throw up.

  • Damian

    Maybe Ron will pick this one up!

    • Chris Hollenbeck

      Anchorman reference gets you an upvote. Well done sir.

  • JoshGroff

    Shouldn’t T-Mobile get the purple one? Yes, I know we had this discussion when AT&T got the red one, but still…

  • nothing wrong with more colors, but this seems a little late to the party with the s4 around the corner. thumbs-down to being a carrier-exclusive though

    • michael arazan

      Amethyst is February’s stone, should of came out then

  • Warwick
