Verizon_n900v_Note 3_White_V_front_S Pen

Samsung tends to introduce phones with two or three color options, then slowly branch out to all parts of the visible spectrum in time. It's time for the Note 3 to start shifting colors, and you can experience it on Verizon Wireless. The new Rose Gold version of the Note 3 is coming to Big Red as an exclusive device.

The Rose Gold color scheme is basically a white Note 3 with gold trim – it actually looks a bit like the gold iPhone. Aside from the color, this is the same device you can already buy in white and black. It has a 1080p AMOLED, Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and the S Pen stylus. The widely noted @evleaks predicted this would happen earlier in January, so we're not caught totally off guard.

We've reached out to Verizon to see when the Rose Gold Note 3 goes on sale. We'll update when we hear back.

Update: Verizon says the Rose Gold Note 3 will be available by the end of the month.

    Galaxy Note 3 Fugly Edition :D

    I don't understand why Samsung always puts a physical button when they want you to use the stylus. So unintuitive. Without physical home button and replacing the menu button with Recently Used App button, the note series or even Galaxy S series can function a lot more efficiently.

    • Ray Sunghwa Woo

      Okay about the color, hmm... it looks cheap still. I don't know why. Must be the material.

      • Lumi

        I've seen a white Note 3 up close, and the material is actually quite nice. Definitely a step up from the previous sammys. Especially the faux-leather-textured back cover.

      It's odd but a lot of "average" users aren't used to virtual button....
      My friends constantly tap the LED light area of my nexus 4 even though they can see the home button right up top

  • samosa queen

    Well at least the Verizon Logo is at the back and that the back is removable. You can easily replace the back (contaminated with the Verizon Logo) by buying a new one.

  • samosa queen

    Wut? No home button logo?

  • Naga Sridhar

    How would this bring more customers to verizon?

    Verizon notes have never had the logo on the button. We have two note 2s and 3 note 3s

  • Golden Eagle

    Wow, is this an obvious attempt to attract female users to the Note 3 or what. Can you imagine if any of your male friends was carrying that hideous thing around. Wow, whatever I guess.

    • Stiggy

      Little known fact, most Note owners are actually women. I think its about 60%. They don't pocket phones as often as men do once again proving size does matter. I agree though, the gold iPhone although just as tacky, is a little bit more unisex.

  • AdrianJNYC

    This version is ugly. Please leave the gold edition smartphones to Apple.
