Brown/Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 appears at online retailersAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Brown isn't a color that we see very often in the mobile world, but Samsung has shown that it's not afraid to crack open its can of brown paint and give fans of that hue some hardware of their own. Samsung is back again this weekend with another brown device, but unlike the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II, this one's not just a straight-up brown color.
A new brown/black version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 has made its way onto the virtual shelves of retailers such as Best Buy, B&H and Buy Dig this evening. The device's paint job is listed as "Brown/black" at Best Buy and "Black & Brown" at B&H, and in the renders posted on the retailers' websites, the Note 8.0 looks to be a mixture of both colors. Pricing for this new Note 8.0 is set at $397.99 at BuyDig and $399.99 at both Best Buy and B&H. It's also worth noting that, just like its white sibling, buyers of the brown/black Note 8.0 can receive a $25 Google Play credit by registering their new S Pen-equipped tablet with Samsung.
Considering Samsung's history of re-releasing its existing products in new colors, it was more of a question of when, not if, the Galaxy Note 8.0 would arrive with a paint job other than the white one that it debuted in. Now we've got the answer to that question, and while I'll have to wait to make any final judgments until I can see it in person, this new brown/black Note 8.0 looks pretty handsome in its official renders. What do you think of this new Note 8.0 color?
