Bored with the Pebble Blue or Marble White Samsung Galaxy S III? Not interested in the $3,400 “Swarovski Edition” GS III? How about a Red version? Today, we bring you news that a new colour of Galaxy S III is coming to Canadian soil, courtesy of Bell. According to an internal doc we received it shows Bell will be launching a red model on October 9th. In addition, Bell notes that the red version will “only available in the 16GB variant.”

Samsung recently announced that they passed over the 20 million GS III sales mark and Bell was the first of many Canadian carriers that release the Android back in June. Check out our full review of the GS III here.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Nice addition but I never really have been a fan of android.

    @LukeiPhone might as start waiting in line right now for the iPhone 5s while you have the 5 in your hand since you have nothing better to do than troll MS…

  • Alex

    Still plastic.. but red!

  • zzZZzz

    so basically for those who don’t want cases, but still want a flashy color. cool, I suppose 🙂

  • Raven66

    Nice…..I hope the S3 will still be for zero dollar when this comes out.

    • DC_HSPA

      The S3 is $0 now but on a THREE YEAR contract!
      – No thanks! do you think we are that stupid??

      @DC_HSPA, if you want that, you may want to also look at moving to another country.

  • lolol

    Im getting this !!!!

  • zzZZzz

    @Raven, i believe the 0$ was for the weekend only. I could be wrong

  • jlm

    does the red color make the phone anymore durable???

    • MR

      Yeah it’ll go to 11 now!

  • MattyMattMatt

    I knew it. I said it when AT&T announced the colour that Bell would get it. In your face Tony (my samung rep).

  • Mithos

    Titanium Grey and Sapphire black news could be right around the corner…!


  • Jerry

    I would like to see the titanium grey and black come to Canada too.

  • Bri

    hmm don’t really like the colour…
    white seems a lot better

  • Raven66

    @zzZZzz…..Still at zero dollar both at Rogers and Bell. Maybe its a week sale, but still good news if you wanted a different colour. Maybe I’ll wait maybe Grey abd Black are coming to Canada too.

  • Stuntman

    I would have liked a red phone. With only 16GB, I’d have to get an SD card. 16 is not enough for me.

  • Sean

    Ugliest colour for a phone ever. God love the phone, but omg the blue and now this?

  • john

    Surprised Rogers didn’t get this colour as they typically release the red versions of phones, like BlackBerries.

  • Volcanos

    They really should be releasing a black version of the i747m Sgs3

  • Al

    Apparently some stores already have it….my friend works at a Bell store in Ajax and he said they’ve had it for a couple of days.
