Just in time for Christmas, there have been three new colours for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 released.

Announced in a press release yesterday, the Korean electronics giant revealed they had released three new colours for their flagship phablet. You can now get the Galaxy Note 3 in Rose Gold Black, Rose Gold White and Burgundy Red.

Three New Colours for Galaxy Note 3

Both the Rose Gold colours are variations of the ‘plain’ white and black version, but with Rose Gold highlights where the chrome effect once was. This is most notable on the side bezel and the top of the S Pen. The makers brand on the back cover is also highlighted in Rose Gold. This gives the phones a stylish look. The Burgundy Red has no Rose Gold highlighting, keeping instead the silver highlighting like the rest of the line. The addition of these three colours increases the choice of colours to buy the Galaxy Note 3 to six: Black, Rose Gold Black, White, Rose Gold White, Blush Pink and Burgundy Red.

In the press release, Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, said:

At Samsung Mobile, we understand that consumers view their mobile devices as an extension of their personal style, and Samsung is committed to delivering fresh ways for consumers to express themselves. By introducing these new editions of Galaxy Note 3, we want to provide our fashion-forward consumers with more ways to express their personality and tastes through our technology.

I feel I should note a caveat here, however. I am guessing when I say that the new Rose Gold highlight on the phone will be just as fragile as the silver effect is on the other colours in the range. My Galaxy Note 2, now just over a year old, has been dropped several times and, as a result, there are black patches where the thin coat of silver has chipped off. Granted, this is my fault and could be avoided with careful use, but it is something to bare in mind.

There is no word on a timeline for when the colours will start to filter out to the retailers, but keep an eye on their respective stores.
