Samsung’s Note brand has been a runaway success, so much so that the company is slowly ditching the ‘Galaxy Tab’ brand in favour of Galaxy Note. In keeping up with that, the company has announced the Note 8.0, to take on the iPad Mini, apparently.
One of nice features some people might need and will appreciate is that you can make calls with the Galaxy Note 8.0. There are Wi-Fi only, 3G, and LTE versions of the device, so Samsung is making sure it touches most of the feature spectrum.
Specs, if you will –
- Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, with TouchWiz on top
- 8.0″ TFT LCD display, 800×1280 resolution, ~189 PPI
- 1.6 GHz quad core Exynox 4 Quad processor, Mali 400MP GPU
- 5 MP camera on the back, full HD recording; front facing 1.3 MP camera
- 2 GB RAM, 16 GB / 32 GB internal memory, expandable with a microSD card up to 64 GB
- Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0
- S Pen
- 4,600 mAh battery
It looks pretty ordinary in some areas, like the battery capacity and the screen. Samsung says the device will be available beginning Quarter 2 this year, however, no price was revealed.
