This process below will assist you, and you won’t have to buy an app from Google Play Store to clean up your contacts. You can make use of the instructions below to set up, edit and delete duplicate contacts on Note 8.

You can start deleting each contact, but that will take time and energy especially if you have a lot of contacts. Instead of that, you can merge the two contacts, which means one will be saved in your work email address and the other will be saved in your email address book.
