The first pictures of what’s said to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has hit the web. This new size of tablet joins the plethora of other Samsung slates, but comes with a different design. Taking shape from the Galaxy S III and Note II, the Note 8.0 looks to be incredibly thin, with curved corners. According to the Italian site dday.it, “We are holding the picture of what seems to be the new Samsung tablet, do not know whether a prototype or the final version (but it seems to be).”
As for the specs, the Note 8.0 has an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, a 1.6Ghz quad-core processor, 5MP camera on the back with a 1.3MP fron-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB versions (3G, Wi-Fi), runs Android OS 4.2 Jelly Bean, and has a 4600 mAh battery. The tablet weighs 330 grams and overall dimensions are expected to be 211.3 x 136.3 x 7.95mm. Finally, the S-Pen is located at the bottom right of the Note 8.0. No word on when the 8.0 will be available or potential price points, but this will be showcased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
