If you like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but you're notparticularly impressed by the two color variants that are currently availablein the US- Midnight Black and Orchid Grey - Samsung has good news. The company justannounced the upcoming release of a Note 8 in Deepsea Blue (pictured below), which will beavailable to use on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, as well as unlocked.

They really need to work on releasing all color options at the same time. I would rather have had the blue as I don't like the all black and the Orchid Grey was a better shade on the S8's than it is on the Note 8.

Same here! When the note 8 was first released I wanted the midnight blue color and it wasn't available to get right away :-( They should bring back the emerald green color it was very beautiful!

Blue Coral was Samsung's best yet, and I am so upset that it wasn't an option for Note8.
