We already reported that Samsung is planning to launch the rumored Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet running under Google’s Android operating system. It seems that the the South Korean manufacturer has already tipped the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet. Samsung exec JK Shin told a group of reporters of iNews24 that they will announce the mid-sized Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100 table at MWC event next month in Barcelona. Last year in Barcelona, the company has managed to unveil the bigger-sized Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. This time we will getting a another version of the Galaxy Note (8.0-inch) in our hands with S-Pen.
“Kona” is the code name of the Galaxy Note 8.0. Reports claim that it will feature a 1.6GHz quad-core processor inside, in addition to the large 8.0-inch Super clear LCD display on the front with 1280 X 800 pixels of resolution. You will also get 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper to make video calls, 16GB / 32GB of internal flash memory, an SD card slot for memory expansion support, and the usual connectivity option such as micro USB 2.0, 802.11 Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and there’s a 4,600mAh battery to power everything.
We can’t quiet tell whether or not the Galaxy Note 8.0 will feature a special stylus. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, which is a bit of drag. We are sure about the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie operating system for this tablet.
Do you think is Galaxy Note 8.0 going to be Samsung’s play against the Apple iPad Mini’s dazzling success?
We’ve also heard that we will see new “Santos” Galaxy Tab 3 devices that will ship either in 7.0 or 10.1-inch edition. The Galaxy Tab 3 devices are expected to feature 5MP main camera and will be available in Wi-Fi only/Wi-Fi+3G variants. Another tablet codenamed “Roma”, is said to be high-end Tab and its model number will be referred as GT-P8200. If you might recall, Samsung’s recently launched Google Nexus 10 is carrying the product number GT-P8110. Samsung already confirmed that it won’t launch its next major phones at MWC. So, there’s no strong reason to expect Samsung Galaxy S IV unveiling at the trade show next month.
