When Samsung takes to the stage on Aug. 23 to announce the Galaxy Note 8, you will basically be able to just listen to confirmations of the latest leak that happened today.

A Samsung device with model number SM-N950 showed up on GFXBench on Tuesday revealing all of its specs. This model number has all been but confirmed to be the Galaxy Note 8, meaning that all the specs in this test are revealing everything we’ll see next week.

What was revealed is everything we expected and a bit more. The Galaxy Note 8 will launch with Android 7.1.1 Nougat it appears, but, as always, expect Samsung’s own layer to be on top. The screen measures in at 6.4-inches with a resolution of 2960×1440, this particular model has a Samsung Exynos chip, but Snapdragon is expected in other parts of the world.

As for memory, despite the numbers shown in the screenshot below, the Galaxy Note 8 will be listed with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The back camera is listed at 11MP, but many rumors have pointed to 12MP. The front camera is listed at 7MP.

The sensor list is pretty impressive with accelerometer, barometer, digital compass, GPS, Gyroscope, ambient light, pedometer and proximity. NFC and Bluetooth are of course also listed as being included.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 8 on Aug. 23, and it looks as though it will indeed be the device we’ve all been hoping it would be.
