Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 to Sport LTE and Android Jelly Bean, Coming at MWC 2013
As a response to Apple’s iPad Mini, Samsung is going to launch a brand new tablet Called Galaxy Note 8.0.
There a some images featuring the tablet, so we know how it looks like, but the company has not specified when and where it will going ti be launched. Nevertheless, if we take a look at what the Bluetooth SIG is saying, Samsung will probably release it on the European market, along with the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus P8200 (a tablet which is rumored to come with a 10.2-inch screen with a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1600).
Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available in three different variants namely the GT-N5100 (which comes equipped with Wi-Fi and 3G), the GT-N5110 (Wi-Fi only0, and the GT-N5105 (this one has Wi-Fi + 3G + LTE). All of the mentioned versions are going to be released in Europe. However, the company is expected to launch it on other markets, such as North America and Asia.
As for its release date, I’m thinking that Samsung will announce this very month in Barcelona, at the Mobile World Congress. It’s not official yet, but the Galaxy Note 8.0 will probably sport an 8-inch display with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 800 powered by an Exynos chip, 5MP rear-facing camera, S Pen stylus, and 2GB of RAM. Of course, it will most likely run Android Jelly Bean.
The price for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 still remains a mystery. According to some online reports, the Wi-Fi version will start at €450, it’s it seems a bit too much for me considering that Apple’s iPad Mini 16GB has a starting price of €339. Anyway, the tablet has not been even officially confirmed yet, so let’s leave the prices for another time.
