Samsung is reportedly set to unveil a pink-colored Galaxy S III to add to the growing list of color options for its flagship smartphone for 2012.
Last month, the South Korean electronics giant also unveiled four color options—Sapphire Black, Titanium Gray, Garnet Red and Amber Brown—to add to the original Pebble Blue and Marble White that they released when the smartphone was launched earlier this year.
The official color name of the pink Samsung Galaxy S III is yet to be revealed, but it will likely follow the “designed by nature” theme that Samsung had been following. It may be noted that the names of the original two colors and the four additional ones revealed last month make references to naturally-occurring substances. Thus, possible names for the pink Galaxy S III may be Tourmaline Pink, Rose Quartz Pink, Kunzite Pink, Rhodonite Pink, Rubelite Pink, Spinel Pink, Morganite Pink, or Topaz Pink, if one bases on the names of pink-colored gemstones.
This is not the first time that Samsung included pink as one of the color choices available for its devices. Earlier this year, Samsung also launched the Samsung Galaxy Note phablet in Berry Pink, which was sold not only in Korea, but also abroad. The Samsung Galaxy S II, likewise, was available in hot pink.
Meanwhile, the pink Samsung Galaxy S III will initially be made available in Korea, Samsung’s home country. Whether it will make its way to the international market, however, is still unknown.
Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S III is one of the South Korean company’s most popular devices. Samsung is expected to sell over 30 million units of the device by the end of the year. In just a hundred days after it was launched, Samsung reported that it had already sold 20 million units of the smartphone. Among its specifications are a 4.8-inch High Definition Super AMOLED display, a 2,100 mAh battery, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and an 8-megapixel Auto Focus main camera.
