Last week brought us some new rumors about the next Samsung device to launch with an S-Pen stylus, the mid-sized Galaxy Note 8.0. We once again heard some details about the tablet’s hardware specs, and learned that a public launch at next month’s Mobile World Congress was likely in the cards. Now that rumor seems essentially confirmed, upon Samsung exec JK Shin telling reporters that his company will announce the Galaxy Note 8.0 at MWC 2013.
Those hardware details may still be surrounded by a little uncertainty, but the tablet’s existence no longer seems up for debate. From what we’ve heard, we expect the Galaxy Note 8.0 to have a 1280 x 800 resolution screen, a five-megapixel main camera with 1.3-megapixel front-facer, and it may be powered by a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad.
Additionally, Shin touched upon the Galaxy S IV, and while he said that it would be arriving soon, unsurprisingly didn’t add that it would be be sharing the MWC stage with the Note 8.0. We’re likely looking at a separate event for that news, though just when that will be, we can’t yet say.
