Galaxy Note 8 specs outed by VentureBeat

In a report from famed Twitter leaker Evan Blass, just about all that you’d care to know about the specs of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 are here for the world to see.  There have previously been pics of the device as well, and some of those we’ve included after the jump for your viewing pleasure.  But first, let’s talk about the raw specs of the upcoming powerhouse “flagship” from Samsung; the device that I’m sure Samsung hopes can rebuild the Note brand after last years fiery end to the Note 7.

For Samsung enthusiasts, the Note device has long been a power users dream.  With the convergence of the Galaxy S lines with the Note lines in terms of overall technology, I’ll leave it up to you to decide if the premium for Samsung’s new Note is worth is versus a Galaxy S8 Plus, which it closely resembles in a lot of ways.
