Just like clockwork, Samsung seems to be prepping a black version of its Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Just as the OEM did with the Pebble Blue edition of the Samsung Galaxy S3, it decided to pair the white Galaxy Note 2 with a more interesting color than the typical jet black. It was pretty close, though, as the dark titanium grey could easily be mistaken for a black device (though the texture and shading still made it stand out from typical smartphones).
It’s believed Samsung won’t be ready to introduce this alternate color until Mobile World Congress goes down in Barcelona this coming February, though, and by that time it might be getting overshadowed by the possible introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The timing would be inconvenient if Samsung’s trying to roll some thunder into an alternate color launch, but those types of launches aren’t typically met with a huge parade so we imagine that’s not much of an issue.
The biggest question is where, exactly, will this black version launch? And could Samsung be preparing higher capacity editions? Most folks in Europe and North America are bound by a meager 16GB of internal storage, so we’re sure a lot of people would be happy to hear about possible 32GB and/or 64GB editions coming to town. There’s a microSD card slot, of course, but the more on-board storage, the better. I’m just going off on a wishful thinking tangent, though, so don’t mind me. Take a look at what you can expect above.
Update: It’s Fake
Well it seems this sexy black Galaxy Note 2 will not be making it to our oversized pockets… at least not that we know of yet. The source has updated its article mentioning this was nothing but a simple darkening Photoshop job. This can be noticed by looking at the camera, LED flash and logo, which all look darker than they should.
There goes that one! We totally got excited over nothing. Like many of you, I have been hoping for a Galaxy Note 2 with a more traditional color (black). Maybe this should come as a sign for Samsung – we would buy these black Note 2 devices in a heartbeat. Make it happen, Sammy!
