If you thought Samsung was done experimenting with screen sizes in their Galaxy Note line, you’d be sadly mistaken. There has been numerous rumors about the latest member of the family, the Galaxy Note 8.0, and now there’s photographic proof that the device exists. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is – yes, you guessed it – a 8-inch tablet device that apparently has Samsung’s S Pen technology built into it. The shot of device provided by French site Fandroid has the Galaxy Note 8.0 shot beside a Galaxy Note II and gives you a very real perspective on just how gigantic this thing is.
Aside from the sheer size, it’s also worth noting that the Galaxy Note 8.0 bears the same design hallmarks of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II, and still uses physical keys on the bottom of the display to navigate through the device. From the images, it looks like that Galaxy Note 8.0 will be using Samsung’s TouchWiz UI (naturally) in top of whatever Android version it ships with, and will have all the same abilities as the Galaxy Note II and the larger Galaxy Note 10.1 as far as multitasking goes (dual-window navigation, for example).
As far as specs are concerned, rumors are that the Galaxy Note 8.0 will sport a a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16 and 32GB storage options. Will know this for sure once Mobile World Congress rolls around in a few days.
