Samsung are pulling out all the stops recently, in response to the iPhone X gaining a stranglehold on the smartphone market. Not only have Samsung brought production of the Samsung Galaxy S9 forward, they are releasing new novelty versions of their existing handsets to stay relevant.

Having already revealed a new Burgundy Galaxy S8, which fittingly receives an Autumn release in Korea, Samsung are now introducing a DeepSea Blue Galaxy Note 8. The news comes as the iPhone X impresses consumers around the world, with advanced features including Face ID and an OLED display screen.

It is important to note Samsung were one of the pioneers of OLED technology, and though the Samsung S9 has yet to be officially revealed, fans are awaiting an early 2018 release. For now, enthusiasts will appreciate the DeepSea Blue Galaxy Note 8, which will be available in store from November 16th. The sky blue design is highly appealing, complementing the all-screen design that was later introduced on the iPhone X.

Samsung and Apple are engaged in a fierce rivalry over who has the best handset on the market, and though we’ll have to wait for the S9 to witness a phone that compares to the iPhone X, the DeepSea Blue Galaxy Note 8 is a pleasant stopgap meanwhile.    

The color will be available at retailers like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, and in unlocked form at Best Buy and Samsung. The color is a vivid deep sea blue, a contrasting option for those who view Midnight Black and Orchid Grey as boring and dull. Samsung have famously released specific colors in certain markets, but luckily the DeepSea Blue Galaxy Note 8 will be available in Canada, Germany, and South Korea. Interestingly, a Maple Gold handset will be released in the UK and Australia.

The Galaxy Note 8 has been praised for its functionality, comprising a great camera, excellent performance, and a large screen. It is suitable for multimedia functions, and though the Galaxy Note 8 isn’t built for everyone, you could also argue everyone isn’t built for it. The phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, has 64GB of storage, and uses 6GB RAM. The device has supreme endurance, comprising a 3,300mAh battery that supports wireless charging, and contains a microSD card to extend storage capacity.
