Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 images confirm same design as “smaller” model



The first real-world images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 have surfaced and they show a strikingly similar design as the smaller Galaxy Note II. (It’s not often you get to call it “smaller”).

The form factor is exactly what you would expect out of Samsung these days and borrows heavily from the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II aesthetics. The same white and chrome colors and button layout are also present.


Specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 should include the following details. Keep in mind that while Samsung has already confirmed the existence of the device, the specs are still unofficial and subject to change.

  • 8-inch Super Clear LCD (1280 x 800 pixel resolution)
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 1.6 GHz quad-core processor (Probably Samsung’s own Exynos chip)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 5 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera
  • S-Pen support and apps

    • True that. I really hate the design on this. It’s not a phablet. It’s a full blown tablet and that design isn’t really good for that. And omg, hardware buttons again???

      • It really is worse than the S3 design. I thought it was ugly as soon as I saw it, and this 8″ tablet is much worse. It just doesn’t fit for a tablet. Honestly, I have never liked any design by Samsung. The best one was the Samsung Wave, I believe. It looked kinda cool.
