Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Now Available In The UK
The Samsung Galaxy Note range has gained quite a reputation since the original model was launched back in 2011. Followed with the launch of the Galaxy Note 2 in September last year, Samsung dominates in the phablet niche, but its Galaxy Note range also offers a number of full sized tablet models.
Samsung recently announced a new addition to its range of Galaxy Note tablets, the Galaxy Note 8 which was showcased at MWC 2013 in Barcelona back in February. Now more than a month since it was announced, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been made available in the UK. The device is set to be made available initially from Samsung’s flagship store in London, and other retailers are set to follow suit in the coming weeks, according to Android Geeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in a range of different models, based on varying levels of internal storage, colours and data connections. Pricing will start at £339 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, making it one of the biggest potential rivals for the likes of the Apple iPad Mini.
You certainly get a lot for your money as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 boasts plenty of impressive features. As the name suggests, that has an 8 inch TFT capacitive display, 5 megapixel camera and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera. The front facing camera can capture high definition video footage in 720p. Two storage variants will be available, which are 16GB and 32GB, but both models come with a microSD slot which can accommodate a memory card of up to 64GB. Of course, common to the rest of the Galaxy Note range, it will also come with the Galaxy Note’s trademark S-Pen stylus. It also has plenty of processing power thanks to a 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex A9 CPU, and runs Android 4.1.2 Jellybean.
While the Wi-Fi only models are likely to be the biggest sellers, those who choose to take advantage of its 3G or 4G (market dependent) connectivity can sign up to a pay monthly contract, which are likely to be available from a number of networks in the coming weeks.
