The Galaxy Note 2 was spotted in two new colors in a leaked ad photo from Korea. This picture showed the phablet in two all new colors previously unavailable.
The new colors for the Galaxy Note 2 are said to be "Ruby Wine" and "Amber Brown." They will be available in South Korea in the near future and should be available around the globe sometime in 2013.
This Ruby Wine color will be exclusive to the Galaxy Note 2.
Samsung has sold 1 million Galaxy Note 2 units at its home base of Korea.
The company reached the milestone recently, making the device one of its most successful of all time.
Samsung also reported that it sold more than 5 million Note 2 units worldwide two months after its original release date.
The device features a 5.5-inch HD display and Android 4.1.1, JellyBean.
Before the official launch of the Galaxy Note 2, J.K. Shin, the head of Samsung's Mobile Unit, predicted that the device would sell 20 million units after just one year. With this news of 5 million sold in just two months, the company is on pace to exceed that prediction and blow past the sales of the original model.
This will also put Samsung in a place where it could beat out Apple in the smartphone sales department.
Other companies have noticed Samsung's success with the smartphone-tablet hybrid and are deciding to follow in the company's footsteps.
LG is expected to unveil a Galaxy Note 2 competitor at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
This device will be a 5.5-inch phablet smartphone that is the same size as the wildly popular Samsung device. There is a possibility that the phablet could be the rumored Optimus G2.
