The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Gets Official at MWC


Samsung introduces the latest Galaxy Note 8.0. Samsung took their Note series handsets into darkly light corners of the mobile market that no other company has survived and they have thrived with the likes of the oversized phablet series Note, and Note II. Too small to be called a tablet, and too large to be considered a standard smart phone, the Note is in a class of its own. With the success of the Note series handsets, Samsung also applied the awesomeness of Note functionality to larger 10 inch tablets found with the Note 10.1. Over the weekend however, Samsung has brought a new Note into the fold, meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was rumored and all but confirmed from Samsung brass and then subsequently caught in the wild, blatantly teased in a Garnet Red Note 10.1 advert and now official! As Mobile World Congress gets started in Barcelona this year, Samsung has used the time to give the Note 8.0 a proper introduction. The Note 8.0 is a new tablet that sports what most other tablets do not! Phone functionality! The Note 8.0 will come with the latest in Android version 4.1.2 and will uses Samsung’s intuitive TouchWiz UI for additional ‘Sammy’ filled functionally. As its name sake insinuates, the Note 8.0 will indeed come with an 8 inch TFT touch screen that will offer up a 1280×800 pixel resolution at 189 pixels per inch. Internally the Note 8.0 will come with a quad core 1.6 GHz Exynos 4 processor that will work alongside 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. Additional memory expansion can be had with microSD options up to 64 GB. Up front, amid sensors and gyros, the Note 8.0 will provide a 1.3 mega pixel camera as well as an additional rear facing shooter that uses a 5 mega pixel sensor and is capable of recording video in full 1080p. Additional connectivity from this awesome new tablet can be found with the likes of Bluetooth version 4.0, Wi-Fi and will also be made in HSPA+ and LTE versions. The Galaxy Note 8.0 will be launched globally by the second quarter, while its stateside launch and price point have yet to be announced.
