While black is often seen as the standard color option for most smartphones and tablets, Samsung is yet to take the classic color route for the Galaxy Note 2 and currently retails the device in only Marble White and Titanium Gray options. However, per an Android Slash report, the Galaxy Note 2 could soon be available in black as a leaked photo of the smartphone in its black avatar has popped up online.

"Recently I wrote about regarding the Note II the colors which come to the market soon. Now a press photo from the Galaxy Note 2 will appear in black," noted the site (translated).

The Galaxy Note 2 is one of the most popular smartphones available right now in the consumer market, and its popularity is evident from the fact that it notched up 5 million units in sales worldwide in just 60 days of its launch. With the introduction of another color option, Samsung could be looking at another sales bump.

Samsung already offers its best-selling Galaxy S3 in several hues, including Sapphire Black. Given the naming trend for its Galaxy portfolio of devices, the black version of the Galaxy Note 2 could get the same moniker.

In November, rumors were rife that Samsung would release its Galaxy Note 2 in more colors in 2013; however, black wasn't mentioned as one of them - the speculated hues were said to be Amber Brown, Ruby Wine, and Topaz Blue.

Even though there's no official word from Samsung yet, it is possible that the black Galaxy Note 2 could make an appearance at the MWC 2013 in February. We'll just have to play the waiting game until the official announcement is made, unless Samsung decides to take the Galaxy S3 black variant route and quietly puts up the pictures on its Facebook page.
