Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiled At MWC
The Samsung Galaxy Note range is renowned for including some of the most innovative devices in the smartphone and tablet markets. Of course, the biggest successes are the original Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note 2, both of which continue to dominate the ‘phablet’ market with virtually zero competition.
These devices with their 5+ inch screens offer the portability of a smartphone, with the versatility and power of a tablet thanks to their ample processing power and large batteries, along with the Galaxy Note’s trademark S-Pen stylus.
Samsung has recently unveiled a new addition to a range, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As you can probably guess from the name, the device packs an 8 inch screen, so is likely to be tough competition for the likes of the Apple iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7.
The device features similar specs to others in the range, of course including the handy S-Pen stylus, 1.6 GHz quad core processor, 5 megapixel camera and Android Jellybean operating system.
Unusually for a compact tablet, the Galaxy Note 8 is also be able to send and receive calls via its HSPA+ connection, and also comes with Wi-Fi. It is also believed that separate LTE versions will be launched in the future.
The Galaxy Note 8 was recently unveiled ahead of MWC 2013 in Barcelona, but all eyes will once again be on Samsung on March 14th, when it is believed that the South Korea based manufacturer will be launching next instalment of its high profile Galaxy S range, the Samsung Galaxy S4.
