Samsung is set to unveil its Galaxy S8 to the world in late March. The secrecy surrounding the new model has not stopped serial leaker Evan Blass from beating everyone to the punch and detailing the specs for one of the devices that the South Korean manufacturer plans to debut. The phone in question is not the standard S8, but rather its larger brother, the Galaxy S8+. 

According to a spec sheet that Blass obtained and subsequently posted to Twitter, the Galaxy S8+ will feature a very large 6.2" body, 6.1"of which will be taken up by a Super Amoled display with rounded corners. As such, the Galaxy S8+ will be a virtually edge-to-edge phablet. 

Internally, the spec sheet points to a 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage, along with a 12 MP dual camera on the rear and 8 MP lens up front. At the moment, the chipset has not been listed, but we're assuming it will be the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. 

The Galaxy S8+ will also be 4G/LTE compatible and tout IP68-rated waterproofness and dust resistance. As for how much all this will cost you, that will become clearer when Samsung officially unveils the new phablet next month.
