On the eve of its unveiling, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 appears in Orchid Gray

Less than 24 hours before the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 becomes official, tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass comes through again with an image of the high-end phablet in Orchid Gray. In addition to the dual-camera setup on back, we can see the fingerprint scanner to the very right of the camera module, which also includes a pair of lenses and the dual LED flash. Because the flash is in between the camera lenses and the fingerprint scanner, the chances of either lens getting smudged by a user blindly seeking to unlock the device is low.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2960. The U.S. model is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset and the international model has the Exynos 8895 SoC under the hood. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The dual-cameras on back are both 12MP with OIS and 2X optical zoom, while an 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3300mAh battery, and Android Nougat is pre-installed.

The Unpacked event, which will include the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, starts tomorrow at 8am Pacific Time, 11am Eastern Time and 4pm GMT. This morning, we gave you some suggestions on where you can watch the event streamed live. Afterward, make sure you check in right here for all of the news and analysis pertaining to the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

somebody can just easily photoshopped the color onto the already existed leak photos and why is this matte? it looks horrible and maybe even worse in real life

And somebody needs to look at the quality of the image. Unless it was photoshopped by the dudes that invented Photoshop, the image's legit, unlike your punctuation game.

There's no comparison to that stylus, which is just a piece of plastic.

Lol yup. Watch it though because you might upset the Samsung fans with the truth.

The only one who gets upset here is you, especially when I post the truth, which is the S8/S8+, Note 7, S7/S7 Edge, Note 5, S6/S6 Edge, Note 4 were the best rated phones of their time.

I'd love to see the Orchid gray in person, such a beautiful color. Renders =/= Justice.

Red. Green. Yellow. Orange. Something new and exciting. Orchid gray is blah!

You're either 14 or you want Fisher Price or Dr. Seuss to make your phone.

Nah. Orchid is subtle but relaxing as a color, not really a flat color given a cheap chromatic finish.

Red, yellow green or orange are exciting if you want a phone that looks like a toy.

Most toys in the market are colored with black, anyways. Emerald green will do.

Why can’t anyone bring back the black and white colors of the HTC EVO, or make it Red and Black. Same old colors. The Pixel better come in a new exotic color.

He's just being funny. probably as an analogy to say that his hands can't wait for the Note8.

"I hope my insurance covers a broken smartphone..." What do you think insurance is for?
