Otherwise, the human eye won’t feel any such difference between the 2560 x 1440 pixel screen resolution and the 4K screen resolution. It will also feature an infinity display which is backed up by a recent front display panel leak.
It is rumoured that the Note 8 will be equipped with the best camera upgrades. The dual lens camera at the rear would be the biggest noteworthy design change from the S8 family to the Note 8.

For now, it is not yet confirmed that whether the position of the fingerprint will be shifted to the front screen or not.
The Note 8 will be clocked at 3 GHz+ Octa-Core processor and will run on the latest version of Android, i.e., Android Nougat 7.1.1. According to the rumors, it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and its own Exynos 8895. The company has planned a RAM boost for the device. It may jump from 4GB to 6 GB of RAM.
