Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and S-Pen Stylus Coming At MWC 2013

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

After we’ve seen a lot of Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 rumors making the headlines over the past few weeks, today it’s time to talk about the Galaxy Note 8 tablet that will reportedly arrive at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona.

Everybody was reporting that the next Note tablet will be a 7-inch or a 7.7-inch terminal, as the Galaxy Tab 7.7 was a pretty popular slate. Now, the rumor mill indicates that the next-gen Samsung Galaxy Note tablet will pack an 8-inch touch panel.

The guys at SamMobile are speculating that the new terminal will sport an LCD display with a diagonal of 8 inches with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, and a 5 megapixel camera mounted on the back of the device.

Rumor has it that an 1.3 megapixel camera will be fitted on the front panel of the alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 8, while the terminal will feature 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, and a 4,600 mAh battery. Galaxy Note 8 will have support for Bluetooth 4.0 and it will reportedly run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, being even thinner than the Nexus 7 (the popular 7-inch tablet co-developed by Google and ASUS), with a profile of only 7.95 mm.

It seems that the new 8-inch tablet of the South Korea-based company will debut in both 3G and WiFi only variants, but there’s no info yet regarding its compatibility with the LTE networks.

There’s no word about the processor underpinning the Galaxy Note 8, but in our opinion we might be dealing with an Exynos 4 Quad CPU at 1.6 GHz, or the powerful Exynos 5 Dual processor that debuted on the Google Nexus 10 tablet.

Since Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 Samsung didn’t experiment so much with the display size of its tablets, while the Galaxy Note 10.1 wasn’t as popular as the South Korean tablet maker expected, therefore the next member of the Note tribe should be a better gadget. We’ll see at MWC 2013 what will be the result of the new Samsung experiment.

If the rumors are accurate and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 does exist, then it will be facing Apple’s iPad Mini, so the battle on the 7.5+ inch tablet niche will get even more interesting.

    Samsung is certainly covering all the bases.. I’ve been considering an iPad mini,, but will definitely wait to see the reviews on this unit.
    Sadly Apple is becoming boring lately….

      Im tired of apple. So boring. Since i got the samsung 7.7. I said, i would buy the samsung note 2. Im never gonna buy an apple product really. My wife owns ipad2, iphone 4s, itouch 5. Ive been discouraging her to stop buying apple coz they are just the same product since they came out. Only better and upgraded versions of the previous ones. Like duh. Apple upgrades their products slowly like that of a turtle. Better camera, better screen, from edge to 3g to LTE, lighter longer thinner. Since iphone was introduced to the market, the next innovation was siri. Everything was just upgrades.
      Samsung is way better. There are so many things u can do with android devices that an iphone,an itouch or an ipad can never do. If u really want features, try android sir. If u have been an apple fan and are used to apple products, u will need to adjust and be open minded. If u get the hang of it, u will see how easy it is to use an android device. Very user friendly if u will have known how to make your android gadget fit your personality. U might as well try navigating an android device displayed in the malls.
