Buyers of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 3 may be able to pick up the biggie phone in pink -- at least if they can wait several week before snagging it.

The phone/tablet, or "phablet," will initially launch during the first week of September in black and white variations, according to SamMobile. It will then debut in pink by late October, the site said Friday, citing information from an inside source. The pink version of the Note 3 may or may not be exclusive to South Korea and Taiwan, SamMobile added.

Samsung has already confirmed the upcoming release of the Note 3 with a 5.9-inch screen. In May, CEO J.K. Shin said that the new model will kick off at the IFA trade show in Germany in September, according to the Korea Times.

Both SamMobile and Bloomberg have pegged September 4 as the specific date for the Note 3's unveiling. Assuming that date is correct, the phone will likely take the stage at Samsung's Unpacked Episode 2 event, along with the recently rumored Galaxy Gear smartphone.

Samsung has yet to reveal any specs for the Note 3. But insider information leaked to SamMobile claims there will be two variants of the phone. Both will offer a 5.68-inch Super AMOLED 1,920x1,080 display, a 13-megapixel camera, and a choice of 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of internal storage.
