Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to sport 4K curved display. Notably, Many few gadgets have the said feature. Note 8 is also said to get Harmon Kardon speakers.
On the design front, as per Leakspinner on SlashLeaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8smartphone is expected to feature a similar display as Galaxy S8. However, the display will be slightly larger.
