On top of the existing marble white and pebble blue colours, customers will be able to choose between 'Garnet Red', 'Amber Brown' and 'Saphire Black'. The latter confirms speculation that Samsung would release a black Galaxy S3 after it posted pictures on its Facebook page.

Samsung said the alternative Galaxy S3 colours will be available in the UK 'later this year'. Samsung's flagship device will be under threat from Apple's iPhone 5 which will be announced tomorrow.
