New Samsung Note member the Galaxy Note 8.0

2013 February 5

Today, we have the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1. But apparently, this is not enough as the Korean tech giant is about to introduce a smaller sized tablet, and it is called the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (code named Kona) although it is not yet officially confirmed, there is a lot of talk on the web that the Korean tech giant is preparing a new S Pen wielding slate to join the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 10.1 in the market.

As a matter of fact, Samsung’s JK Shin (Head of Mobile) apparently confirmed that this device will indeed arrive at the MWC 2013 expo in Barcelona Spain.

Yes, we already have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 on the market today, but it appears like the Korean tech giant sees the arrival of the Galaxy Note 8.0 as its best chance of directly competing against the iPad Mini by Apple.

Everything is pointing to the MWC 2013 for the unveiling of this new Galaxy Note member, with JK Shin even reportedly confirming a Barcelona launch.

The MWC 2013 will start during the last week of this month, but this doesn’t automatically mean that the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be out soon. It will most likely take a month or two before the device lands in stores. An April release is only right for this device.

This device will carry a price tag in the likes of budget-friendly Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD by Amazon.

Meanwhile, the iPad mini’s price starts at $329, so the Galaxy Note 8.0 will most likely undercut its Apple rival in their attempt to pull customers away from the latter.

Earlier reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will pack a Super Clear LCD technology (1280 x 800p). If this is true, then this device will boast a better display than the iPad Mini.
