The Note series has sold well for Samsung, and the company is reportedly about to add a new device to the list. The Galaxy Note 8.0 might be introduced at MWC next month.
This tablet will, obviously, have an 8-inch touchscreen. This will have a 1280 x 800 resolution, according to an unconfirmed report by SamMobile. Devices in the Note series come with a stylus and employ software designed to take advanatge of it, such as special drawing and note-taking apps.
This model will apparently give users an option smaller than the Galaxy Note 10.1 but larger than the Galaxy Note II. Samsung might have picked this size because the upcoming Galaxy Note III is reportedly going to have a 6.3-inch display.
The Specs of a Mid-Range Tablet
The Galaxy Note 8.0 will supposedly run Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), but its processor is not yet known. There will be 2 GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot.
With a product designation of GT-N5100, 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.
This rumored tablet is going to include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and A-GPS. There will be a version with 3G cellular-wireless data support, although 4G is also a possibility.
All this will supposedly go into a 211 x 136 x 8.0 mm casing and weigh 330g.
There is no word yet on what the Galaxy Note 8.0 will sell for, or if it will be released soon after its rumored announcement at the MWC tradeshow in Barcelona next month.
