The first leaked confirmation here is a bit disappointing. You may not get the much anticipated under-display fingerprint sensor. Samsung is reportedly not yet ready with the under-display fingerprint sensor, so the Galaxy Note 8 may come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, just like the Galaxy S8.

Coming to the second confirmation from the leaks, we have confirmation about a Dual Camera module. The leaked images show the Galaxy Note 8 with a vertically set Dual-camera which will be focussed more on photography than AR usage.

The third confirmation is about the display. The Leaks show a similar infinity display as on the S8. Although, the display on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be sharper around the edges and with lesser curves. The Note 8 may come with minimum bezels at the top and bottom.
