Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 rumoured for MWC launch
Samsung is all set to add an 8-inch model to the popular Samsung Galaxy Note range dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, according to recent rumours.
SamMobile claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress event being held in Barcelona from February 25 to 28.
It will be a bit of a departure for the Galaxy Note series in that it will be a pure tablet rather than a smartphone-tablet hybrid. It will earn its Note name, however, through the inclusion of the Samsung S-Pen stylus.
Here are the reported specs in full.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Specs
As the name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will sport an 8-inch Super Clear LCD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution.
It will also feature 2GB of RAM and a choice of 16 or 32GB of internal storage. This will be backed by a microSD slot for expansion purposes. Around back of the device will be a 5-megapixel camera.
Powering the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be a fairly hefty 4600mAh battery, and the report even claims to have the device’s dimensions: 211.3 x 136.3 x 7.95mm, with a weight of 330 grams.
That makes it slightly chunkier all-round than the 8-inch iPad mini, of which it will be a clear rival.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, so it’ll be up to date on that front. As mentioned, it will come with the S-Pen advanced stylus system seen in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which adds the ability to scribble notes on the screen in a very natural manner.
