Currently the LG G3 is available in three fairly standard colour shades- black, white and gold. Or to use the marketing terms: Metallic Black, Silk White and Shine Gold. It’s a safe selection and there’s likely to be a colour to suit almost anyone, but it’s still pretty limited, especially as Moon Violet and Burgundy Red were announced with the phone, only to be no-shows at launch.
But they’re finally arriving, according to Phone Arena, which heard from LG that “Additional G3 colours such as Moon Violet and Burgundy Red will be rolled out in select markets starting in August and continuing over several weeks. Exact colours and dates will be decided locally in conjunction with carriers. Announcements will be made in each market at the time of availability.”
So we may well see these new shades arrive in the next few weeks. It’s hard to say for sure, but going by the images the Burgundy Red shade might be more of a pink, while the Moon Violet is a fairly standard purple colour. These new colours should certainly help the LG G3 stand out, especially compared to the comparatively plain black and white shades.
We noted in our LG G3 review that we were fairly impressed by the LG G3’s build quality, despite it sticking with a plastic back, and adding new options can only improve the aesthetic appeal.
Unfortunately LG hasn’t announced exactly which markets will be getting these new colours, so while we expect we’ll see them in the UK, there’s no guarantee. It’s also worth noting that the wording of LG’s statement implies that there could be more than two new shades on the way. There probably won’t be, but there could be. Either way, keep your eyes peeled for some striking new colours as the red and violet versions are likely to appear soon.
