    Samsung has beaten the Mobile World Congress rush and officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 8.0. The device is basically a super-sized version of the Note 2 smartphone, right down to the physical home button (a first for Samsung's post-Android 3.0 tablets), call capability, and vertical orientation.

    • The screen is an 8-inch 1280x800, a TFT LCD panel
    • You get the S-Pen and all of Samsung's custom TouchWiz applications
    • Android 4.1.2.
    • A beefy 1.6Ghz Exynos A9 quad-core processor,
    • 2GB of RAM,
    • 16 or 32GB of storage, and
    • An open MicroSD card slot.
    • The rear camera is a serviceable 5 megapixels, with a typical 1.3MP front shooter.
    • The 4600mAh battery should provide plenty of runtime.


    Samsung isn't saying exactly how thin the Galaxy Note 8.0 is, but at 210.8x135.9x7.95mm, it's not much bigger than existing 7-inch tablets.

    At the moment an HSPA+ version is confirmed for an international release with phone capabilities in some territories, but a WiFi version should be coming at launch or soon after.

    A worldwide release is scheduled for the second quarter of this year, though Samsung informs us that distribution in the United States has not been finalized. At the time of writing, there is no price information available.

    You can get a few fleeting glances of the Note 8.0 in Samsung's ChatOn 2.0 commercial (featuring 100% more Camille Saint-Saens than ChatOn 1.0!), below:
