The Note rainbow: here are the colors the Note 7 will be available in

Samsung's supercharged phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, has been announced in all of its curvy, S Pen-wielding glory. And, as can be expected, the handset it modernistic and shiny, wrapped in metal and glass, like we've seen Sammy do with its top smartphones since early 2015.

Of course, the Note 7 will come in a few different color options as well. Gone are the days when black was good enough, as gold, silver, and white have become staple choices in the industry. This year around, Sammy has tried something new, with an interesting color combination that should appeal to those that are a bit tired of the same old look.

The finishes that the Galaxy Note 7 will be available in at launch are Blue Coral, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx, with some non-US markets getting a Gold Platinum version, and an elusive white variant as well. Most of these have matching body and trim, with the phone's frame being the same color as the front and back plate.

The Blue Coral color, however, is much more intricate, sporting a nice faded gold frame. Its S Pen is colored fittingly, with a blue finish all over that changes to gold at the clicker. The Black Onyx is a truly deep, stealthy black that elegantly reflects light with a focused shine. And, of course, the Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium we know from the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge as very shiny finishes with oil-like, color-distorting reflective properties.

So, for those of you that are ready to press that pre-order button as soon as it appears, your choice of color will be blue, silver, and black. Which one are you going for?

You would be blind to say this compares to a $400 android phone because it has the same apps on it. There are plenty of other compelling features

So how do you explain a $400 Windows PC to a $800 Windows PC? Just curious? Something must not be the same.

It is a mystery at this point, though, we have seen it in the official promo video. Maybe it'll be limited to some markets

I hope Samsung doesn't do something stupid like not releasing all the colours at once.

The Specs may be a bit underwhelming because of fake rumors and I hardly see any reason to upgrade from an S7edge, however it still is one of the best options for people that haven't upgraded this year and a big improvement over last year note 5 that in my opinion was the worst note ever.
