One thing passionate Aussie tech lovers hate is when a product is announced overseas as being available in certain colours or configurations, but it’s not released here except in Black and White.

So it’s refreshing to see Samsung realise this and today announce the release of the Coral Blue Galaxy Note 8 in Australia.

You won’t find it at your telco, instead it will be at Samsung Retail stores and Samsung online.

Perfect timing really, just a day before Apple’s iPhone X goes on pre orders.
