Samsung Galaxy S4 colours to see Pebble Blue option dropped

Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, new reports have suggested the Samsung Galaxy S4 colours are to see black and white options made available, with the Pebble Blue offering to be dropped.

With the Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3 option having caused Samsung considerable issues during last year’s handset launch, latest reports have suggested the existing Marble White tones are to be joined by a new, traditional black option, spelling the end for the Pebble Blue hue.

The latest in a long line of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours, the new reports have claimed the Samsung Galaxy S4 colour options available at launch will be of a relatively uninspiring nature, although it is believed that, as with the Samsung Galaxy S3, further colour schemes will be launched at a later date.

Akin to the issues Apple had with the white iPhone 4, Samsung encountered a number of manufacturing problems with the Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3, a problem which saw the device end up in short supply for a number of weeks following launch.

Earlier this week, stealing attention from rivals showcasing products at MWC 2013, Samsung confirmed that the long awaited Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event will see the fourth-generation flagship handset formally unveiled in New York City on March 14.

Although the Samsung Galaxy S4 looks set to drop its predecessor’s blue colour scheme in favour of a more tradition black approach, it has been claimed there will be six handset variants to choose from at launch with both the black and white handsets being made available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumours

Arguably the most eagerly awaited handset on the tech scene, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been tipped to play host to all manner of high-tech innards with a selection of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours suggesting the device will be the first to feature the CES 2013 unveiled Exynos eight-core processor.

Whilst further Samsung Galaxy S4 rumours have suggested the handset will in fact feature a 2GHz dual-core CPU, it is expected the iPhone 5 and HTC One rival will play host to a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera alongside a hefty 4.99-inch 1080p Full HD display.

Elsewhere, it has been claimed that whilst the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch has been confirmed for March 16, a Samsung Galaxy S4 release date will see the handset hit retailers a little over a month later on April 22.
