Samsung's Black Galaxy S3 becomes a reality!

   Samsung are the proud creators of the hottest phone in town at the moment, the Galaxy S3. A little while back we covered the rumours that Samsung would be adding a few new colour options to the current Pebble Blue, Marble White and the beautiful Red version if you happen to be on AT&T in the United States.

   The thing is that last time the suggestions included more outlandish colours like green, gold and pink. None of these are off the cards yet, but UK retailer MobileFun has confirmed that they will be stocking a new Black version of the S3 in the near future. 

   Just as with the other varieties the unlocked black version will set you back £499.95 for a 16GB model and will be identical in terms of specs and capabilities. That means you’ll get the same beautiful 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4Ghz, 1GB of RAM and an eight megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. So if you won't consider anything other than a Black phone, then you're in luck and don't forget to head over to MobileFun to get hold of your one! As soon as we have word on availability else where we'll be sure to let you know, but a US version shouldn't be too far behind!
