We saw the Galaxy Note 8.0 make an appearance with the FCC back in late-January. At that time the tablet was shown under the model number of GT-5110 and it was a 16GB model with Wi-Fi connectivity. Basically, we were looking at the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Note 8.0 at that time. And well, as of today it looks like the FCC filing for the cellular connected model has been discovered.
This model is shown as the GT-N5100 and looks to contain support for 3G on the 800 and 1900 MHz bands. The filing also shows the tablet as still sporting the full phone functionality. Of course, before anyone in the US market gets worried about the lack of 4G, or excited about the inclusion of the phone — we are not expecting this exact tablet to arrive stateside.
In fact, the Galaxy Note 8.0 that will be offered for those in the US market is expected to have 4G LTE. Otherwise, the Note 8.0 will bring an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 and a pixel density of 189ppi. The tablet will be powered by a quad-core Exynos 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage and running Jelly Bean.
Of course, there will also be the S Pen and the software goodies to include the multi-window support. Basically, the Galaxy Note 8.0 brings what you have come to either love or hate from the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet — just in a smaller size. While we wait to find out some additional release details from Samsung, make sure you check the above video which shows a bit of hands-on time with the tablet.
