We are seeing smartphone makers unveiling gold editions for their smartphones almost every month. After Apple launched the Gold Edition iPhone 5S, the folks at HTC and LG revealed golden One and G2 models, respectively. So did Samsung for the Galaxy Note 3 and now the Rose Gold variant is up for grabs at Verizon.
Last December, Samsung introduced two new body colors for the Galaxy Note 3: Merlot Red and Rose Gold. The later one has now became available for purchase at Verizon, also confirming @evleaks report saying that the Rose Gold Note 3 will be a Verizon exclusive.
After you agree to sign a two-year agreement with the said US carrier, you will be able to get your hands on the Rose Gold Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $249, so the new model costs just as much as its black and white brothers. Furthermore the 32 and 64 GB models cost exactly the same as each other.
Alternatively, you can grab the Verizon Rose Gold Note 3 without contract for $649.99 or go with Verizon Edge+ and pay nothing upfront then split the payment in 24 monthly fees of $27.15.
Design wise, the Rose Gold Note 3 looks like the white variant of the phablet with a golden bezel and accents. Of course, the device is identical to the standard version when it comes to technical specifications. For those needing a refresher, I remind you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is underpinned by a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, it has 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of microSD-expandable storage, 13 MP rear-facing camera with 4K video recording support, 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, and a 3,200 mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes pre-loaded with Android 4.3, but we should expect it to get updated to KitKat over the next few weeks, given that the Android 4.4 update has been already rolled out for the international variant.
Are you guys interested in buying the Rose Gold Note 3, or do you prefer the black or white versions instead?
