Just a day ago we’ve told you that Samsung is working on new Galaxy Note 3 colors and voila – new color options have been unveiled. Fans of big phones will soon be able to chose from three additional variants, including Merlot Red, Rose Gold Black and Rose Gold White.
The new trio joins existing colors of Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink, the last of which is only available in certain parts of the world.
The Korean company wasn’t too specific when these three will start selling. It said that availability will vary by markets, while confirming that the Galaxy Note 3 in Rose Gold White will hit China later this month.
As you would expect, we’ll let you know if a major US carrier picks any of these…

WhatsApp is more than a little late to the iOS 7 app update party, but it's making up for the long delay with a sweeping upgrade to its Messenger client. In addition to sporting an appropriately flatter interface, the new version introduces broadcast lists -- you can now address large groups of people at once, such as an entire class. The refresh also improves location sharing with a 3D map, while shutterbugs can crop images and see larger thumbnails. It's easier to manage blocked contacts, too. Chatty iPhone owners can grab the WhatsApp update for free from the App Store, although they'll eventually need to fork over 99 cents per year.

ZTE is gearing towards launching a successor to its Grand S phone. The Grand S II has been cleared by Chinese equivalent of the FCC, and it’s also being caught at AnTuTu benchmarks. The AnTuTu results suggest this phone/phablet will rock Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset, and with 33,357 points – it’s slightly (by 2,000 points) faster than Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3.
Rest of the specs apparently include a 5.5-inch full HD screen, 2GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. The version that was cleared in China also rocks TD-SCDMA radio making it ready for China Mobile’s network. However, a WCDMA model is also in works and as far as we (don’t) know, it could be launched either at CES in Las Vegas or Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear something new on this. Stay tuned in the meantime…

Remember that $349 off-contract Moto X deal we mentioned in our Cyber Monday roundup? That didn't exactly go to plan. According to Motorola, insufficient pre-sale testing and overwhelming demand crippled the MotoMaker customization engine, crashing the website and leaving droves of orders unfilled. It's embarrassing, to be sure, and Motorola's CEO is personally apologizing for the flub. "On behalf of all Motorolans, I apologize for what occurred today," Dennis Woodside wrote on the company's blog.
To placate frustrated buyers, Woodside says the company is repeating the sale this Wednesday, reinforcing both the MotoMaker website and its stock of phones. "We will also add an additional promotional day on Monday, December 9," the CEO stated. "I appreciate your understanding as we get this fixed in time for Wednesday and Monday." Two extra days to mull over impulse buying a new phone? Sounds like a decent apology to us. Check out the company's official statement at the source link below.
