Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Rumored for MWC


Samsung’s model GT-N5100 came to our attention late last year, with its model number suggesting it would be the latest model to join Samsung’s Note series of Androids. Benchmark data gave us the impression that it would be a mid-sized tablet, maybe around seven inches, filling the gap between the Note II and full-tablet-sized Note 10.1 (above). Now SamMobile is claiming to have received some new information on the device, which it says will launch as the Galaxy Note 8.0.

Codenamed Kona, the tablet will supposedly be available as both WiFi-only and 3G-enabled versions; the purported specs show only HSPA+ support, with no indication that it will operate on LTE networks.

We’d previously seen both 1280 x 720 and 1280 x 800 mentioned as potential resolutions, and this new info seeks to confirm the latter. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of SoC in these specs, but we’ve already seen evidence for a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad. It should arrive packing a 4600mAh battery and running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Additional hardware specs include a five megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facer, 2GB of RAM, microSD support, and either 16GB or 32GB internal flash.

Assuming this info is accurate, we could hope to see the Note 8.0 debut at next month’s MWC.
