The Galaxy Note 8.0 is all but announced now. Mobile World Congress has not officially started, but Samsung’s booth is already being setup. As you can see in the photo above, it features a large press photo of the Galaxy Note 8.0.
There have been a lot of rumors lately about the latest Galaxy Note variant, Galaxy Note 8.0. As the name suggests, it will be an 8-inch tablet with a built in S-Pen stylus. It will likely be announced at Mobile World Congress later next month.
This tablet seems a lot like a smaller version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. The size also seems more practical. Personally, I enjoy using tablets around 7-inches more than 10-inch ones. The Galaxy Note 8.0 seems to suffer the same fatal flaw that the Galaxy Note 10.1 suffered – the 1280 x 800 screen resolution. At least the pixel density will be slightly higher on this 8-inch model.
The original Galaxy Note launched with a giant 5.3-inch screen. The next year Samsung upped the display by another 0.2 inches. The latest rumors state that the Galaxy Note III will have a monstrous 6.3-inch screen.
At that size, 1080p is definitely coming. I would also expect a larger battery to accommodate the larger screen.
What do you guys think? Could you carry around a 6.3-inch phone?
The Galaxy Note II is about to launch in the UK and be announced in America, but Samsung has only recently uploaded a video demonstrating their software tweaks. The video showcases a Korean Galaxy Note II, but the experience should be largely the same in other countries.
The most interesting feature is multi window mode, which allows two apps to appear on the screen at once. The number of compatible apps is larger than on the Galaxy Note 10.1 and it even includes some stock Google apps like Gmail.
