Today Samsung announced that the Galaxy Note8 Deepsea Blue will be available to U.S consumers beginning November 16 – just in time for the holiday shopping season. Consumers will be able to choose from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon carrier-specific versions of the Galaxy Note8 Deepsea Blue at Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com, as well as the unlocked versions available at Best Buy and Samsung.com.
With the addition of Deepsea Blue to the Galaxy Note8 portfolio, consumers will now have another color option to choose from in addition to Orchid Gray and Midnight Black.
Introduced in August, the Galaxy Note8 is this year’s Note that succeeds the Note7. With the Galaxy Note8, consumers get two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses to capture great looking photos, even in lowlight environments, a bigger “Infinity Display” that fits nicely in the hand, and the S Pen which is the Note’s signature tool.
We reviewed the Note8 recently and it walked away with a Techaeris Top Pick Award for 2017, check out the full review for yourself before you buy!
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is without a doubt one of the best smartphones of 2017. It’s not for everyone though. Android purists need to just walk away because the Samsung Experience will just irritate you. iPhone users who are used to doing things Apple’s way, unless you’re ready for a big change, this is probably not for you.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 will appeal to those hardcore Samsung fans (especially existing Note owners and the community is very vibrant) who want the best that Sammy has to offer. I think it will also appeal to potential iPhone owners who want to switch to Android. The build quality is great, the cameras are awesome, and the Samsung Experience software is miles improved. Yes, Samsung messed up their Note7 efforts but have more than made up for that with the Note8. This is a Top Pick phone.
