Samsung 8-inch tablet spec leaked

Samsung is expected to launch a new 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet at the Mobile World Congress in a few weeks time.

SamMobile managed to dig up a few juicy specs, which point to a rather interesting device. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is said to feature a 1280x800 Super Clear LCD display in a sleek package, measuring just 7.95 at the waistline and weighing in at 330g.

The tablet will be available in 3G and WiFi only versions. Other specs include 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper. The tablet will also feature S-Pen support. We still don’t know much about the processor though, but many punters believe it will feature a quad-core Exynos 4, although a 5-series part is possibility as well.

Samsung has dabbled in 7- and 7.7-inch tablets in the past, with mixed results. They tended to be quite pricey, so the new 8-incher would need to end up on the cheap side if Samsung hopes to take on the Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad mini. Since Samsung has gone ape with its pricing in recent months, we wouldn’t bet on it.
