The head of Samsung’s mobile division just outed the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, a tablet that’s set be introduced next month.
Jong-Kyun Shin was talking to a group of reporters in Korea when he confirmed some of the recent rumors about this device. He also said that it will be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona in February.
Although Shin revealed that the Note 8.0 is certainly in the offing, he did not reveal any other details. An earlier report was much more forthcoming, however. Of course, these specs are unconfirmed.
The 8.0-inch display will supposedly have a 1280 x 800 resolution. All devices in the Note series, whether tablets or smartphones, come with a stylus and special drawing and note-taking apps.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 will allegedly run Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), with 2 GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot. It is allegedly going to have a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixel front one. The battery will be a 4600 mAh.
A Wide Range of Options
Samsung certainly does not believe that “one size fits all”. Instead, the company introduces models of all shapes and sizes, and waits to see which will prove popular.
It already offers the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and debuted the Galaxy Note 10.1 not too long ago. Now it’s going to release a tablet that fits between those two in size. There has even been a report that the Galaxy Note III smartphone is going to have a 6.3-inch display.
