It would be an understatement to say that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is doing all right in the markets where it has been released. In fact, having 5.5-inches of viewing real estate has certainly not slowed down the sales figures of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and here we are with word on the grapevine that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might actually come in a shade that business folk would like - that is, black.
This would mean that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a very high possibility of arriving in the same color as that of the hugely successful Galaxy S3’s black, where the latter has already seen more and more colors added to its line up in the past. What you see above is a press image of a black N7100, so I guess this is as official as it can get - at the moment, at least.
Considering how there are so many other colors to choose from, to see Samsung fall back upon black for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 makes a whole lot of sense, as this rather stealthy color would surely do its bit to make all 5.5” of it look smaller than usual, as black tends to have that effect.
No idea on when the new black color scheme will end up as an official release, but if we do not see the black Samsung Galaxy Note 2 arrive at CES 2013 that is happening in less than a fortnight’s time, them Mobile World Congress 2013 that will be held in Barcelona, Spain in February seems to be a reasonably safe bet.
Update: Apparently, what you see above is just a fan rendering, and it does not seem as though there will be a black colored Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in the pipeline. Bummer!
