Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 makes an FCC appearance as the GT-N5110

Following up a series of leaked images, it looks as if the Galaxy Note 8.0 has made the required stop with the FCC. The filing shows a tablet sporting the model number of GT-5110, a number we previously saw associated with the 8-inch Note.

That announcement showed a handset that was running Gingerbread at at time when many were already thinking of Ice Cream Sandwich. And on top of that, the handset was announced with some less than exciting specs. That aside though, judging from some recently published images, it appears as if Samsung is prepping a follow-up device.
