You can soon buy the Galaxy Note 8 in a beautiful new color.
Samsung announced Wednesday it would be introducing a new color of the Note 8 for its US market called "deepsea blue." The color is a deep, vibrant blue that's similar the "really blue" color Google chose for the original Pixel phone.
The new color will be available on November 16, and customers can buy either carrier-specific devices — from AT&T, Spring, and Verizon — or unlocked versions at Best Buy or on Samsung's website.
Samsung has a history of releasing specific colors in specific markets, and the Note 8 is no different. According to The Verge, the blue color has been available in other markets like South Korea and Canada since the phone was initially released, and another color, "maple gold," is available in Australia and the UK.
Up until now, US customers have only had the option of black and "orchid gray," which is similar to lavender.
The Galaxy Note 8 boasts a dual-lens camera, an S Pen for drawing on the screen, an iris scanner, and up until the iPhone X was released, the best display on any smartphone. The Galaxy Note 8 starts at $930, and can go for as much as $960 depending on your carrier.
- The iPhone X reportedly has the best smartphone display ever created — better than the Galaxy Note 8's
- I used the iPhone X for a week, and I'm convinced it's the best smartphone
- Don't settle for the typical iPhone X — these luxurious iPhone X models cost up to $4,500
