Initially, the Rose Gold colored Galaxy Note 3 that we had previously reported on was said to be getting a location specific release in the Chinese market before other regions, but we have reason to believe otherwise thanks to a new tweet from @evleaks, that states Verizon will be offering the Rose Gold edition Galaxy Note 3. The Rose Gold Note 3 as pictured above will have a black and white variation available, but what is still unconfirmed is whether or not VZW will get both colors although it is likely that they would. There isn’t much of a difference between the Rose Gold and the original Black and White Note 3 devices, except the detailing which you can clearly discern is of a gold colored accent instead. It isn’t much of a change but some people will love the ability to have a device with a slightly different look.
Other than the gold colored accents, there’s nothing else different about this version of the device compared to the original models. They carry the exact same specs. So the only really draw here is aesthetics. If you want a device that has a touch of uniqueness to it and were considering upgrading to the Galaxy Note 3, perhaps waiting for the Rose Gold edition might be a smart move. From a personal standpoint, what Samsung should have done is somehow change the back, as that faux leather look is simply atrocious. This is solely an opinion however and many people love it. These new devices as stated above will sport the same battery, the same size and quality and type of display, the same amount of RAM, the same cameras, and literally everything else that the Galaxy Note 3 offers is the same.
The Rose Gold color is not the only new color that Samsung will be releasing of this device, as they’re slated to launch a “Merlot Red” Note 3 sometime as well. The Merlot Red definitely has a nice look to it when compared to the Rose Gold, especially since it has more than just colored accents with the same colored front and back. Samsung has had some bad ideas in the design department before, but they normally offer devices that look really sleek. The Red Note 3 appears to be a little more visually stunning and capture the attention a little better, so there’s that. We don’t have any word on when the Rose Gold or the Merlot Red edition Note 3’s will launch, but it most likely won’t be too far off. Perhaps we’ll see something pop up at MWC next month?
