The Android phone you’ve been waiting all year long is finally here. Samsung cleaned up the Galaxy Note 7 mess and proved it can make a phone that’s safe to use with the Galaxy S8 that launched a few months ago. Now, it’s time for the bigger Galaxy S8 version to come out, the phone that sports a built-in S Pen stylus and a dual lens camera on top of all the Galaxy S8 design and features we’ve grown to love. They call it Galaxy Note 8, and everything you need to know about its specs can be found right here.

Here are the official specs of the Galaxy Note 8, and there are no surprises. We’re basically looking at a bigger Galaxy S8 that comes with a few extra software tricks in addition to the stylus and beefed up camera experience.

That said, the Galaxy Note 8 will probably be one of the best handsets of the year, and it’s definitely a great iPhone 8 alternative for Android fans:
