Here's what you can expect with the new phone. The successor to the defunct Note 7 follows the company's previously formula of implementing new features on the Note line, which then cascade throughout the Galaxy lineup over the next year. "You still have the very minimal bezel, but the Note8's 6.3" display is a barely-matters 0.1" larger diagonally than the S8+'s, and so really doesn't net you much more in the way of screen area. It featured a silhouette of a stylus that comes with the Note 8 crossing out negative words and turning them into positive ones. The South Korean giant might launch a pair of wireless earplugs with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 device that will be powered by its artificial intelligence assistant "Bixby".
The Note 8 also remains IP68-rated, meaning it can withstand dust and water up to 1.5 metres and up to 30 minutes.
There are a few days until Samsung will announce the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 at the global launch event held in NY. The screen is Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. But customers may choose to wait until the iPhone 8 and Google Pixel 2 announcements, which could badly hurt the Galaxy Note 8 sales during the launch month. The curved edges on the Note 8's display are steeper than the S8 and it's a bit more straight-edged.
All three devices also offer an Always-on display, presenting useful information at a glance without having to turn the main display on.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 unveiling is just hours away, but the company might have already let the details slip. There's also an 8MP camera on the front, which offers both OIS and optical zoom. The dual, 12-megapixel cameras have a f/1.7 and f/2.4 aperture, that allow for a whole host of digital photography tricks. Outside the United States, which includes India, the Galaxy Note 8 will ship with Samsung's own Exynos 8895 chipset. There are two more variants with 128GB and 256GB onboard storage options. MicroSD is also on board.
For those would-be Note 8 owners concerned about battery life, however, there shouldn't be much reason to worry. There's fast charging available through the USB Type-C port, or wirelessly. Battery capacity of the S8 is 3000mAh, while the S8+ has a 3500mAh battery.
The Note 8 will be delivered with Android 7 and receive later an update to the recently announced Android 8. Essentially, whenever you take a Live Focus photo, the wide-angle lens captures a wide-angle shot. However, there are a few new additions on the software side for DeX that arrive with the Note 8.
Carphone Warehouse has listed the Note 8 at £869, making it hugely expensive.
With security (especially of your smartphone) at the top of your priorities, the Galaxy Note 8 seems to be on the cusp of current and newer security features.
