Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 8.0 as Nexus 7 rival

Samsung has expanded the Note range at MWC 2013 with the Note 8.0 which boasts the ability to be a fully fledged Android tablet and also an enormous phone

 

Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 8.0, an Android Jelly Bean tablet which offers both the portability found on the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini but then also throws in 3G connectivity and Samsung's S Pen technology.

The Note 8.0 isn't shirking on power either with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and up to 32GB of memory with a microSD card slot letting you bump that all the way up to 64GB.

There's a 5MP snapper on the back and a 1.3MP camera on the front for video-calls on the 8-inch 1280x800 189ppi display. You'll also find an S Pen rather neatly tucked into the bottom of the tablet.

Samsung has created the Note 8.0 to be held in one hand, whilst the S Pen has been utilised to full effect with a range of exclusive apps including an S Pen-optimised version of Flipboard.

First seen on the Galaxy Note 10.1, Dual View makes an appearance letting you drag apps into on half of the screen allowing you to see both at the same time.

Samsung will also be launching the new Galaxy S4 later this month after the company revealed that it would be holding a Galaxy S4 launch event on March 14th.
