Samsung is at it again as SamMobile posted the rumored specs of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100. The Note series seems to be doing really because Samsung decided to develop their line of devices further. Since this slate is an 8-incher, we might as well expect this one to go head to head with the iPad Mini if priced competitively.
If you find the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 phablet a bit bigger for a phone, and the Galaxy Note 10.1 too large for a portable tablet, then this Galaxy Note 8.0 might be the one for you. But wait, it’s not yet available nor confirmed by Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will boast an 8-inch 1280×800 Super Clear LCD display to be on the portable side and of course, to serve as a reinforcement to their 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 tablets that was overthrown by the likes of the Nexus 7. It will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will be sporting a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM to take any task that you want to throw in.
But what’s the killer here? Well, I guess you already knew it? It’s the S-Pen! The Galaxy Note family’s main asset is probably the integration of a productive stylus.

Reports say that this tab will be officially announced on this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. What do you guys think about the Galaxy Note 8.0? We’re hoping that this tablet will be priced less than the Nexus 10 (Google-Samsung product) just like what ASUS did with the MeMo Pad.
