Like Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the Note 8 will feature an edge-to-edge display screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio instead of a regular 16:9.
Coming with 6.3-inch AMOLED display screen, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is larger than the Galaxy S8 Plus. In addition, the smartphone will also feature an always-on display just like in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. The Galaxy Note 8 will also be IP68-certified for water and dust resistance.

As far as the camera is concerned, it’s expected that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with a 12MP primary camera on the rear and an 8MP front shooter for selfies. Just like Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, the Note 8 becomes the first Samsung smartphone to come with the dual-camera feature. While one of the 12MP (Dual Pixel) cameras with f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization will be wide-angle, the second 12MP camera with f/2.4 aperture and optical image stabilization will be telephoto for 2X optical zoom.
It’s the camera feature that will give the Note 8 an edge over the S8 Plus.
