As has been the case year after year, the Galaxy Note 8's specs expectedly follow the Galaxy S8 and S8+ from earlier this year — plus a couple key changes, of course. The new Note is built on the same general platform as the Galaxy S8+, with the same hardware features, processor options, storage and screen resolution. It's also only slightly larger than the Galaxy S8+, but with the addition of an S Pen it also has a smaller battery.
