A photo was uploaded last week showing the black Galaxy S3 on Samsung Mobile's Facebook page but still no comment stating the legitimacy of the phone's plans.
That is until this week, when Samsung officially announced the black Ice Cream Sandwich device will be available for pre-order in the United Kingdom's retailer MobileFun. The black smartphones are expected to be shipped in the next four weeks for customers who pre-order.
The black version is currently priced at about $785 (£499.95).
According to PhonesReview, there is no difference to the black version aside from the color. It is still a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED Plus touch screen with 1.4GHz Exynos quad processor, eight megapixel rear facing camera, and a two megapixel front facing camera.
A release date in the US is unknown, but PhonesReview noted the device is being offered as a "SIM free device" and that one could easily import it.
News of the black version comes after Sam Mobile reported that Galaxy S3 will have the Jelly Bean version by the either the end of the year or the start of 2013.
