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.
