Straight out of Barcelona, we got the lowdown on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 from none other than Shoneel Kolhatkar, Samsung’s director of product planning. The Note 8.0 is Samsung’s big entry into the ‘phablet’ market, and judging from what we’ve seen, it could very well be a major competitor for Apple’s iPad Mini and Google’s Nexus 7.
The exterior design is typical Samsung; Note 8.0 looks like a giant Galaxy S3 with some extra bells and whistles, like an SD card slot, SIM card slot, and an infrared transmitter Samsung calls the “IR blaster.”
As far as specs go, it’s got a 1,280 x 800 resolution PLS display, a 1.6GHz Exynos Quad 4412 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel one in front. And no need to worry about it running out of juice – Samsung outfitted this badboy with a massive 4,600mAh battery. Wireless connectivity includes 3G or 4G, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.
