Galaxy Note 8.0 was the star of the Samsung booth at MWC 2013. There were tens of models displayed at the Barcelona-based show and Samsung employees trained to demo all the features of the Galaxy Note 8.0. Now, more then a month after the official announcement, the Samsung Galaxy Note debuts in UK.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be initially available at Samsung Experience Store in London and, subsequently, in the stocks of the big retailers in the United Kingdom.
I guess that the debut on the rest of the European markets is near and that it will hit the online retailers and store shelves in a couple of weeks. The carriers will also sell the 8 incher, the Galaxy Note 8.0 model that offers support for mobile data connection.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 16 GB WiFi-only model has a price of £339, so if you are reading this from another European country expect it to have a price tag of around €400.
What do you get for 339 quids? I’m glad you’ve asked. Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 boasts an 8-inch TFT capacitive display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 189 ppi, while being underpinned by an Exynos 4 Quad chipset based on four Cortex A9 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz and Mali 400 MP GPU.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 also comes with 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of internal storage and microSD card slot (up to 32 GB supported). In terms of connectivity the 8 incher comes with 3G speeds of up to 21 Mbps, WiFi a/b/g/n, dual-band, WiFi direct, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, GPS and GLONASS.
The new Samsung tablet runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and features a 5 megapixel camera on the back with autofocus, geo-tagging, and support for full HD video recording, while the front-facing camera has a 1.3 megapixel sensor. All these are powered by a 4,000 mAh battery fitted in a 8 mm thick case that weighs 338 grams.
