Last week brought rumors about the Samsung GT-N5100, which is expected to arrive as the Galaxy Note 8.0. Based on those details, we were expecting Samsung to announce the 8-inch version of the Galaxy Note during Mobile World Congress. And on that note, it looks like a MWC announcement will be coming.

The latest chapter in the Galaxy Note 8.0 story is coming courtesy of the Korean language iNews24 who are reporting that the tablet will indeed be announced at MWC in February. According to the report, JK Shin was the person who confirmed the Galaxy Note 8.0 announcement. Sadly though, Shin didn’t go into any further details.

Based on previous details courtesy of the GLBenchmark filing, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to debut with a 1280 x 800 display resolution, 2GB of RAM, microSD card slot, 4600 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera. Otherwise, the tablet is expected to be running Jelly Bean and have options for either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

All that being said, while those hoping for an 8-inch Galaxy Note now have something to look forward to seeing — there are obviously lots of details that still need to be released and confirmed because as of now, the only bit confirmed by Shin was that the Note 8.0 will be unveiled during MWC.

  1. Needs to have 720p (which it does) to be on my radar, I am sick of these resolution wars! Anything under 15″ does not need 1080p for any reason. RAM, storage and processor are more important than 1080p any day of the week.
