Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tipped for Mobile World Congress

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tipped for Mobile World CongressAt present, there are three members in Samsung’s Galaxy Note family, namely the original 5.3in Galaxy Note, the 5.5in Galaxy Note 2 (pictured), and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

The latter was unveiled at last year’s Mobile World Congress, and we’re told to expect a fourth member to appear at this year’s show.

I speak of something called the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, which has apparently been “confirmed” by Sammobile.

Proposed Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 specs include – as the name suggests – an 8in TFT display (1280 x 800, Super Clear LCD), 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front webcam, 2GB of RAM, and 16/32GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD).

Oddly, there’s no mention of the processor, though the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will reportedly come with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and a 4,600mAh battery.

As for connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will boast Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, A-GPS, and Wi-Fi, but seemingly not LTE (though there is a 3G version).

And that’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. Given Samsung’s propensity for vaguely annual launches, we’re thinking this is looking quite likely.

1280x720 SLCD...that'll be lovely on an 8" display, especially considering this'll hardly be cheap judging by the pricing of all the other Note devices.

Only marginally lower res than the screen on the Note 10.1 though...
Or reading the text in article same screen res as the 10.1..

Which has a pretty naff display (for an expensive tablet), tbh.

Should look better on smaller screen at least.

I guess...

It's odd, the Note phones have both been top of the range devices and the Note tablets seem to be more mid-range, bar the S-Pen and name, the two product lines have little in common.

Well Samsung haven't had any tablets with higher spec though have they? (exc n10 as not totally theirs)
