The Galaxy Note 8 is becoming a badly kept secret at this point, and even more so with today’s latest leak. What you see above (and below) is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in all of its glory.
We can’t say that we’re terribly surprised with the design aesthetic of the Galaxy Note 8, as it shares the same shape and button configuration of both the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III. This isn’t a bad thing in the least bit, as we’re pretty fond of what we see here. Plus, we’re not surprised that Samsung wants its family of devices to have a similar look and feel. It makes sense.
Rumored specs of the Galaxy Note 8 include a 8 inch 1280 x 800 display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera with no LED flash, front-facing camera, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. And since this is a part of the Note family, you can expect the S-Pen to be included with the tablet as well.
While the Galaxy Note 8 might be considered Samsung’s answer to the iPad Mini, and it may well be, but we’d expect a tablet of this size from Samsung even if the iPad Mini didn’t exist at all. From the Galaxy players starting at 3.x inches to the Note 10.1, Samsung has several devices in between, so yet another device to saturate the market not only isn’t surprising, but expected anyway.
The Galaxy Note 8 has essentially been confirmed to be announced at Mobile World Congress this year, along with what ever else it’s been cooking up. Of course, we’ll likely be waiting until April until the Galaxy S IV rolls around, but maybe a few new tablets will keep you occupied until then.
What do you think? Is the Galaxy Note 8 something that you’re interested in?
