Samsung announced the Galaxy Note8 in New York last week in four color options - Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Gray and Deep Sea Blue. Today a fifth option was added to the portfolio after an event in Taiwan - Star Pink.
After the Pink Galaxy S8+ announcement, the Galaxy Note8 flagship is also introduced first in Taiwan. According to sources, 30% of all smartphones sold in the country are in some shade of Pink.
Apparently, Samsung decided to go all-in with the color and painted the back panel, the metal rim, all the buttons on the sides and even the S Pen. One thing Samsung didn’t dare to change is the Infinity Display - the tiny bezels stay black. The dual camera setup also is unchanged.
The phone might be different on the outside, but on the inside is the same 6.3” AMOLED display with 18.5:9 resolution. The chipset is Exynos 8895, and the RAM is 6 GB. Storage is 64 gigs, but there is a microSD slot for up to 256 GB more.
The color might be exclusive, but the price stays the same - TWD34,200 or around €950.
