Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Dons Topaz Blue
While rumors regarding the purported Galaxy Note 3 keep the grapevine busy, Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 has popped up online in a new color - blue. The Topaz Blue version of the Galaxy Note 2 phablet made a brief appearance on Samsung India's website before being pulled off.
Earlier in February, Samsung launched a pink variant of the Galaxy Note 2 in Korea in time for Valentine's Day. In January, the smartphone market leader released the phablet in two more colors - Amber Brown and Ruby Wine.
In November 2012, rumors were rife that Samsung would release the Galaxy Note 2 in Amber Brown, Ruby Wine, and Topaz Blue. With the red and brown hues being released, fans and tech gurus wondered when the blue variant would make an appearance.
Now, per reports, the Galaxy Note 2 surfaced on Samsung India's website in the Topaz Blue version. The listing has since been pulled off from the website, but a Blog of Mobile report indicates that the blue variant is headed to India and Germany.
"Topaz Blue announced as the new color '(GT-N7100) Samsung GALAXY Note II' Samsung Electronics is. Topaz Blue should also be available in the actual presentation, which was held in India. It is expected to be launched in India and Germany," reports Blog of Mobile (translated).
Currently, the Galaxy Note 2 is available in five colors - Martian Pink, Marble White, Titanium Gray, Amber Brown, and Ruby Wine. If the phablet launches in Topaz Blue, the tally would go up to six and make it the first blue color for the Galaxy Note 2.
Consumers in the U.S. would be hoping that the blue variant makes its way to the region unlike other colors. Presently, only the white and gray Galaxy Note 2 options are available for purchase in the U.S.
Samsung is yet to disclose any details regarding the release of the Topaz Blue version of the Galaxy Note 2. Given that the listing was pulled from its official website, the likelihood of this being the real deal is extremely high.
