Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gets festive red and gold colours

Time for some colourful language: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is to appear in festive new red and gold colours.

Time for some colourful language: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is to appear in new red and gold colours, and very festive they are too.

The new red Note 3 sees the whole leather-look rear swathed in rich scarlet. Meanwhile the rose gold models simply replace the silver trim of the existing black and white models with a subtle champagne colour, similar to the gold hue of the Apple iPhone 5S.

The latest Note phablet was unveiled in September with a suave new look, the slick faux-leather effect back replacing the glossy plastic of previous models. The leatherette look even has distinguished fake stitching.

The Note 3 is noted for its S Pen stylus and split-screen multitasking features, powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core processor with a 13-megapixel, 4K camera and high definition 5.7-inch screen. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with an update to version 4.4 KitKat expected in January.

The Galaxy Note 3 costs around £470. Samsung told me it will announce release dates for the new colours "in due course." 

What do you think of the Galaxy Note 3's new colours? Let me know down in the comments, or use some colourful language over on Facebook.
