The heavy lifting comes from the 1.6GHz A9 quad-core processor and 2GB RAM and the storage options include 16GB or 32GB.

In terms of software, the Galaxy Note 8.0 includes a slew of S Pen apps and functionality.  All the standard Note apps are present, including S Note, S Planner, Email (with hand-writing integration), Quick Command, Easy Clip, Photo Note, and Paper Artist.

No availability or pricing is known and U.S. details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The GALAXY Note 8.0 will be available from 2Q of 2013 worldwide (EUR, KOR, NA, SEA, SWA, MEA, CHN, TW, LA).
