Samsung will launch its Galaxy S3 later today which will be available in blue or white models. See also Samsung Galaxy S3 review.

This is according to GSMarena which has a screenshot of The Carphone Warehouse's computer system showing the models. The system shows the Galaxy S3 in blue and white options but not black. Visit Samsung Galaxy S3 launch: as it happened.

Samsung Galaxy S3 blue and white

The news comes after The Carphone Warehouse listed Samsung Galaxy S3 on its website. The colours certainly line-up with Samsung's invitation for the event which showed blue and white pebble shapes and the words 'come and meet the next galaxy'.

It is unlikely that Samsung has ditched the classic black colour and as GSMarena points out, the 'ceramic blue' colour of the Galaxy Note on AT&T is so dark it pretty much looks black. Go to Samsung Galaxy S3 specs and pictures.

There are only a few hours before the launch event so we'll find out all the details once and for all. We will be there to bring you live coverage of the gig so join us at 7pm via Samsung Galaxy S3 launch: live.
