Samsung’s rose gold Galaxy Note 3 is finally headed to the U.S. as a Verizon exclusive. After weeks of speculation and leaks, the South Korean company confirmed today that device is headed to America’s largest carrier, though there’s no word yet on an official launch date or pricing.
Under the hood, the Rose Gold Galaxy Note 3 is pretty much the same as the original model. The phablet comes equipped with a massive 5.7-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, a 3200mAh battery, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of internal storage with microSD support, 3GB of RAM and a built-in stylus. It runs Android 4.3 out of the box with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI on top, though the device recently began receiving an upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat in some areas.
From a design perspective, the new model is largely the same though the gold edges and accents are a nice touch against the stark white casing. If you’ve been eyeing Apple’s gold iPhone 5s but consider yourself a true Samsung supporter, your day has finally arrived. If not, there’s nothing else truly special about the new phablet variant.
