Samsung's JK Shin confirms Galaxy Note 8.0 for MWC

Samsung's JK Shin confirms Galaxy Note 8.0 for MWCRumours of a mid-size Samsung Galaxy Note date all the way back to October last year, and Samsung Mobile head JK Shin has finally put the rumours to rest by confirming that an 8in Galaxy Note will launch at Mobile World Congress next month.

This just days after detailed specs emerged for the device, allegedly to be known as the Samsung GT-N5100/5110, which will sit neatly between the Galaxy Note 2 phablet and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

What all three are set to have in common, of course, is Samsung's S-Pen stylus technology and its accompanying software, which will be dished up alongside the expected Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, according to the SamMobile specs leak from a few days ago.

Other details to have emerged then include a 1280 x 800-pixel screen resolution, 5MP/1.3MP cameras, 2GB of RAM, microSD card compatibility and a 4,600mAh battery.

That (along with another rumour suggesting a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 processor) remains to be confirmed, with Korean news service iNews24 only quoting Shin as confirming the 8in screen size and the fact that it'll be present in Barcelona next month.
