While it is possible to find plenty of cases in pink to wrap around your smartphone, sometimes buyers prefer to just get their device in pink without the need for a bulky case. To help those potential buyers, at least in the U.K., Samsung has a pink version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that will be sold exclusively by retailer Phones4u. The device is scheduled to be available for pre-order starting in January 2014 for free with a contract on Vodafone, E, Orange or T-Mobile.

According to Phone4u, they will also be throwing in a wireless speaker valued at £120 ($197 USD). If the Galaxy S4 is not what you are looking for, buyers can also get their hands on a pink Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S4 mini.

It looks like consumers in Taiwan interested in grabbing a pink HTC Butterfly will get that opportunity according to Taiwanese website ePrice. Their site is reporting today that HTC is making a pink cherry powder colored HTC Butterfly available on April 30th. According to the site, pre-orders are now being accepted at both Yahoo! and PCHome. The pink version will be sold for NT$21,900 ($731 USD). This is slightly less than the red and white versions that have been released.

Last month we reported on rumors that HTC is working on a successor to the HTC Butterfly. The appearance of additional colors on the market is typically a sign that a manufacturer is ready to move on to their next version of a device and are content to drive sales of their previous generation device with new versions, like different colors.

Pink Galaxy Note Arriving in the UK in June

Samsung has always been one to sport a device in as many colors as possible. The Galaxy S III will start off in White and Pebble Blue as you know and we can only assume in other colors down the road. This time however it’s regarding the “berry pink” version of the Galaxy Note that was launched in Korea early in April. Thought to only be seen in Korea the pink device is now making its way to the United Kingdom.

The folks at Carphone Warehouse revealed that it will launch the pink version of the device starting next month and they’ve gone as far as to create a pre-registration page. This page will allow potential buyers to sign up for more information. However as it’s the Galaxy Note just in a pink variety there isn’t much you wouldn’t already be able to find out other places.

So if you live in the UK and were really hoping to snag this giant device in pink your chance is coming up. While I personally wouldn’t get one in pink I’m sure someone will. Hit the source to sign up.

Samsung to Launch the Pink Galaxy Note In the Coming Months

Just last month, right before Valentines day, we got wind of a ‘Berry Pink’ colored Samsung Galaxy Note. At that time we were unsure whether or not the device would actually make it to markets, but given that we have already seen the Galaxy S II receive the feminine treatment, it wasn’t completely out of the question. While visiting the Samsung booth at CeBIT this year, the folks at Engadget were exposed to a pink Galaxy Note prototype confirming the device was in fact going to be a reality.

As large as the Note is, it’s going to be hard enough to get women interested in the device, but adding the cheery pink hue as an option will surely draw some female attention. It is expected to land in Germany sometime in the next couple of months, but there is no word of a stateside release as of yet.

Ladies, would a pink Note be just what you need to call the huge smartphone your own? Let us know in the comments below.
