Samsung's Galaxy Note8 final specs leaked and it's pretty much what you expected

We're just three weeks away from Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked event, where the company is slated to launch the Galaxy Note8. With an announcement around the corner, the phone has leaked in all its glory by Evan Blass of VentureBeat.

As you can see from the image above, the Note8 will look very similar to the Galaxy S8, with the same nearly bezel-less design on the sides. The main difference is that the corners are more 'squared-off', and the screen is just a bit larger than the S8+, at 6.3 inches. The resolution remains the same though, at 1440x2960, as does the 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The chipsets will remain the same for the Galaxy Note8 as the S8 and S8+ (Snapdragon 835 in the US, Exynos 8895 elsewhere), but the handset will see a bump in RAM to 6GB. Users will also get 64GB of storage with optional expansion via microSD.

Samsung is jumping into the dual-lens camera trend, with two 12-megapixel sensors, one of which offers a 2X zoom, similar to Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. The main lens has an f/1.7 aperture with 'dual-pixel autofocus', while the second is f/2.4. The front camera will be 8 megapixels with an f/1.7 aperture.

As far as the battery goes, it will come in at 3300mAh, and of course, Samsung will offer fast charging via USB Type-C, or wireless charging will be available too. According to the report, it will come in Midnight Black and Maple Gold at first, but will later ship in Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue.
