Samsung Electronics Co. has added three new color options to its standard marble white and pebble blue Galaxy S III smartphones, which aren’t affected by last Friday’s patent infringement verdict against the South Korean company.

Samsung said it's adding amber brown, sapphire black and titanium gray as color options for its flagship phone, which is offered by each of the four major mobile phone carriers.

AT&T Inc. has had the exclusive rights to a garnet red Galaxy S III phone since late last month, but Samsung said it has added that as a color option for other carriers as well.

"The new colors take their inspiration from the Earth’s richest materials," Samsung said in its press release. You can see sapphire black in the picture above and the rest of the new color options here.

The tech company did not say whether any of the new colors would be sold exclusively by different carriers.

The phone made its debut abroad in late May and arrived in the U.S. in June on Sprint Nextel Corp. and T-Mobile USA networks. It debuted with Verizon Wireless and AT&T in July.
