Samsung’s Head of Mobile Confirms Galaxy Note 8 Unveiling For MWC

samsung logo

Earlier today, reports flew in from overseas that Samsung’s head of mobile, JK Shin, has confirmed that his company plans to unveil the Galaxy Note 8.0 at this year’s MWC. Other than that information, specs are still rather speculation, but it is reported the tablet will feature a screen with a resolution of just 1280 x 800, be powered by a quad-core Exynos processor (definitely not the Octa), and will naturally come packed with Samsung’s proprietary software. 

If you are hoping for some powerful little tablet in the 8″ form factor, I wouldn’t hold your breath. This is more than likely a way for Samsung to directly compete against the iPad Mini, which only exists because of the Nexus 7. Ah, the world of competing companies in electronics.

    1080p phone standards, 720p tablet standards. Yep, that makes sense.

    Its Great to hear that Samsung to Unveil 8-inch Galaxy Note at MWC 2013.Samsung may have released several tablets with different sizes (7.0, 7.7, 8.9, 10.1-inch), the Galaxy Note 8.0 should be positioned as an midrange Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet….. http://ow.ly/h0KGU

    It’s going to get really confusing when the phone version catches up with the tablet in numbering…I can imagine these words being uttered sometime in 2016: “So what you’re telling me is that the Galaxy Note 6 is way better than the Galaxy Note 8? I don’t believe you”

    One of the writers at Gizmodo is so dumb, he thinks it’s going to be an 8″ version of the Galaxy Note phone instead of a downsided version of the 10″ tablet.

    I cant stand touchwiz…not even the newest iterations. When will mfgs start competing with hardware and leave the SW to AOSP?

    • Trey Mitchell

      are you saying that as someone who has looked at it breifly or has actually owned a recent touchwiz device? I was plesantly supprised touchwiz is a plesaure to use on my note 2.
      sure theres that silly cartoony icon thing but alot of the stuff they added is really useful.

  • Dave

    I still can’t theorize any reason I would ever need a tablet.

    • Trey Mitchell

      I got a note 2 so I wouldn’t need one.

  • DC_Guy

    I cannot wait to get my hands on one!

  • Austin

    Yes!! Apple TRY AND BEAT THAT!!

      Don’t think there’s that much of a need to drag Apple into this, or that it makes Samsung look good by doing so.

  • Abe of Spades

    I just want a tablet with a flexible screen, high battery life, NFC, and a bunch of other awsome features im probably never gonna need

      this needs a kickstand

    • Droidzilla

      I just want one with a lightsaber functionality. I don’t care what other features it has. It could have no screen and be shaped more like a cool flashlight handle than a tablet; on second thought, it should be exactly like that.

        i hear this is coming in sense 5.0

        • Droidzilla

          If it’s in Sense, it’ll be all laggy.

          • Trey Mitchell

            I lold

      Need to make the next Note phone using the Flex screen so the Note is a 5″ phone that can open up into a tablet would be awesome
