Samsung is bringing purple to the people. The Galaxy S3 is now available in Amethyst Purple, joining its Pebble Blue and Marble White brethren only on Sprint for $149 with a two-year contract.

It's an interesting time for a Galaxy phone to be unveiled in a new hue — especially since the latest Samsung mobile device, the futuristic Galaxy S4, is due to hit stores very, very soon. Preorders for the S4 ($250 with a two-year contract) begin April 16.

If you do opt for the new violet Galaxy S3 offering, head over to Sprint. You probably won't get tired of that purple shell, but just in case, dress it in tech protection that honors our friends across the pond.
