HTC One Max shows up in black on HTC Hong Kong site


When originally released, the HTC One Max was like a Ford Model T in that you could get it in any color you wanted as long as that color was silver. That appears to be slowly changing as a new image on the HTC Hong Kong official site reveals a new black version of the super-sized smartphone. This comes almost two weeks after a red version of the HTC One Max was revealed in some marketing collateral for the Taiwanese market.

Similar to the situation with the red HTC One Max, there is no information for this black version about how widely it will be distributed around the globe. However, the HTC One Mini is available in black, silver and blue while the original HTC One can be purchased in silver, black, red, blue and gold. With the HTC One Max now available in silver, red, and black, albeit in limited markets for now, it may yet shed its relation to Henry Ford.

Samsung to release the Galaxy Note 2 in black

A black Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Certainly not much of a surprise, but a great move by Samsung nonetheless. An image of the back side of the Note 2 in black was acquired which prompted this rumor to circulate.

While there’s no official word from Samsung on the validity of a black Note 2, it isn’t far-fetched and we should most certainly expect it to be released sometime next year.

Would you guys pick up a black Note 2?

YouTube video ad confirms multiple color options for HTC Butterfly [Video]

A quick look at HTC’s latest ad for their Butterfly reveals multiple color options for the device. The 2 minute video shows red, white and black colors for the phone in all its elegance. Sadly, the device is still available only in Asia, but we get the DROID DNA in the United States minus the microSD slot.

If HTC wants to gain more ground, they should really push for devices such as these to be available world wide, don’t you think? Either way, check out the video after the break!

Visitors to the Verizon web site today were greeted with an offer to sign up for notifications about a couple new colors for Samsung Galaxy S III devices. Both black and brown will be available from Verizon, joining blue and white versions. No word on pricing, though it is hard to imagine they would sell for anything other than what the current versions go for.

More evidence that a Samsung Galaxy S III in black is on its way


Yesterday we reported of a black Samsung Galaxy S III image that leaked on Samsung’s Facebook page, thus assuming that a black Galaxy S III may very well be on its way. Today, more evidence has surfaced on this possibility when an Android Police tipster sent them an image of a Carphone Warehouse’s internal product database that clearly shows “Samsung Galaxy S III Black.”

Obviously this is still a rumor and things could very well change, but signs are certainly pointing towards an imminent release of a black S III. Would a black Galaxy S III interest any of you guys, or has marble white and pebble blue kept you content?
