Is Samsung preparing to release black as a new color option for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? It would appear so, given a new image of the Note 2 in said color that has been circulating in the web.
If the rumor is accurate, the color would expand the choices for the Samsung phablet from two to three. In the United States, Samsung currently offers the device in Titanium Gray and Marble White, skipping black, regardless of the fact that it is one of the most popular color choices in mobile devices.
It is believed that the black Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may be first showcased during the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, scheduled in February 2013. The next Samsung flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, is likewise rumored to be slated for a Mobile World Congress unveiling.
At this point, it is still unknown which mobile operators could eventually offer the black color choice. Carriers in the past, however, have offered the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone in various colors, so consumers could have a wide range of choices in which mobile carrier they would want to purchase the device from.
To review, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is packed with a speedy quad-core processor, a 5.5-inch touchscreen display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, support for 4G LTE connectivity, a large battery, and the Samsung S Pen pressure-sensitive stylus for easy and convenient note-taking. It is currently available from Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular, and AT&T in the United States.
When the first iteration of the phablet was released, many raised an eyebrow over its size. However, the phablet has proven itself to be a successful product. Reportedly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has sold around 5 million units worldwide.
Samsung has neither confirmed nor denied the rumor for a black Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
