Update: Samsung Canada has issued the following statement, and it’s not hopeful:

“At this time, Samsung Canada does not have plans to bring the Black Galaxy S III to the Canadian market. We will continue to keep you posted on product news as it becomes available.”

That rumoured black Galaxy S III we told you about last week is real, and it’s coming soon to UK retailer MobileFun. While we continue to suspect that, like the US-only red variant, the black GS3 will be UK-only, but we’re holding out hope that it will eventually make its way to Canada. At this point the black variant will only be offered in the HSPA+ quad-core version, which suits us just fine except for the fact that no Canadian retailer will ever pick it up. It can be imported for around $800CDN, but it’s a big price to pay for a slightly darker shade of paint.

What do you think? Would you shell out that kind of coin for a black Galaxy S III?

  • AllPlastic

    Does paint peel off the grey bezel like it does on the overly sensitive white and blue SIII? I’m ready to switch

  • Darren

    I was kicking myself for getting the blue one 2 weeks ago, as it was the darkest colour available. I don’t feel so bad anymore. 800 bucks. Ouch.

  • mike

    I want the black one. but $800 is to high. I really hope samsung releases the black one for Canada at a reasonable price.

  • sickpuppy

    No prob , the iPhone will come in black

    • SheepSix

      Like putting lipstick on a pig.

  • jedduff

    Blue, white or black, it’s the same phone for me. So, I don’t care.

  • Peter

    Why would they not make it in 10 colours, it would not cost that much more and they would have quite a few more people taking it as it would be what they want….my wife is reluctant to let her PINK motorola flip phone go as it’s pink!

  • ExcessDan

    i originally wanted a black one out of this and settled with a blue. seeing the black now it just kind of looks weird. i’m happy with my blue phone.

  • and what?

    Pebble blue actually looks better

  • GCooper

    I like the black. I was surprised that it was originally launched in blue and white. Although I want a red one, damn at&t 🙁
