Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 revealed, looks better than the white

Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 revealed, looks better than the whiteThe Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0’s existence was confirmed by JK Shin earlier in the year, and the not-so-secret tablet was finally made official at last week’s Mobile World Congress.

General consensus is that the Marble White Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 looks pretty cheap and nasty, but feast your retinas on this bad boy – the Charcoal Black Note 8.0.

At this stage, the Charcoal Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is very much unofficial. It’s been leaked to Phone Arena by an anonymous tipster.

Charcoal Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 specs are expected to be identical, so you’re looking at an 8in 1280 x 800 display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB storage – with microSD, too. Nice.

Oh, and not forgetting the Samsung S Pen, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) and a juicy 4,600mAh battery powering the show.

Still no indication of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 price or availability just yet. Probably a good idea to undercut the iPad mini by a few quid, but what the hell do we know?

Anyone fancy the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0? Has the Charcoal Black model changed your opinion?

Still looks cheap and nasty, like someone scaled up the N2 but didn't fix the fact the proportions look stupid on a larger scale.

You have a Note 2 and think this looks nasty? :p

Just teasing. It is ugly. The Note 2 is arguably the least ugly of Samsung's recent launches.
They really need to fire their designers. All of them. There's gotta be two gifted kids working as janitors or something in Samsung HQ... Has anyone seen the white Galaxy Camera? Up until the unboxing I was under the impression not much could go wrong with the design of a camera... how wrong I was.

Yes not the most inspired looking device but then its a slate tablet, what do you expect? Not sure about you but when im using a device im pretty much fixated on the screen not staring at a bezel so thats not so important in my book, whats more interesting is whether the tablet will be priced correctly (read: competitive with the iPad mini) and if Samsung has continued create good content creation apps like they have on the note/S3

Agree! It's nice to have something to b*tch about, but often actual first contact can totally change the first impression. I once won a Palm 750v. In pictures I thought it was one of the ugliest chubbiest things I had ever seen. In reality (at the time, anyway) it felt marvellous.
Chubby and ugly? Yes, but it was a joy to hold. Typing was excellent, and for a WinMo device it was snappy with a pile of clever shortcuts etc...

And few people were blown away by the SGS3's design, yet it's the second most popular device ever... (or third most popular or most popular - depending on whose figures you buy into).
N91 also comes to mind. Gorgeous in those TV ads, typing on it was downright dangerous.
A lot of gorgeous laptops turn out to have crappy, spongy keyboards etc etc

Exactly. Personally id be quite happy to have a device that looks a bit rediculous as long as it worked perfectly as intended and I wouldnt mind if it looked cheap if it was cheap!
