Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

The war on tablet is more heated than ever with the Samsung new introduction to the tablet family. Samsung during MWC 2013 in Barcelona recently announced the arrival of the iPad mini direct competitor named Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

As the naming goes, this is an 8-inch device which has very much similar outlook as the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Some would say the Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note II and Note 8.0 are of the similar lazy mechanical styling designer as not much difference in terms of design is actually seen in the recent Samsung Galaxy devices since the Galaxy SIII. Galaxy Note II grows slightly 0.8-inches from the Galaxy SIII and the Galaxy Note 8.0 grows additional 2.5-inches from the Galaxy Note II.

The Note family members are always equipped with something slightly different from the rest of the Galaxy family, which is the SPen.

In the hood:

  • 1280 x 800 screen resolution (189ppi)
  • 1.6GHz A9 Quad-Core processor 
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB or 32GB
  • micro SD Card expandable
  • 5MP and 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Battery capacity 4600mAh
  • Powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
  • 3G and WiFi models
Unfortunately no price was announced during the launch but to be a serious contender to the iPad mini, the price has to be similar to RM999 as the WiFi 16GB version of the iPad mini.
