This year’s edition of the Mobile World Congress has seen the launching of yet another Samsung Galaxy product. This time the South Korean company decided to reveals its quad core tablet called Galaxy Note 8, reporters at CNET News have declared.
In case you haven’t followed in the footsteps of other tech lovers yet, Samsung has prepared another tablet for those who may be interested in getting one. The new Galaxy Note 8 was released during this year’s edition of the Mobile World Congress and the main aspect distinguishing it from the rest of the tablets existing on the market is the fact that it is endowed with a quad core 1.6 GHz Exynos 4 ARM Cortex A9 processor.
The screen is very wide, as is the case with most Samsung Galaxy tablets; it is 8-inches big, it has a 1280 x 800 resolution and a 189 ppi pixel density. The 2 GB RAM are sufficient to keep the tablet running smoothly whereas the Android 4.1.2 is the latest version of operating system that could be used on the tablet.
The camera is not as good as the one provided on Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The rear camera has only 5 megapixels whereas the front one is a 1.3-megapixel snapper. There are two versions of tablets; one with 16 GB of storage and another one with 32 GB. The tablet’s storage capacity may be increased with the help of a microSD card of up to 64 GB. The battery unit is 4,600 mAH.
Similar to other Galaxy Note devices, Note 8 has been provided with an advanced S Pen stylus that is recognized by the home and back keys without even being used on them. There are many other apps that may be controlled by simply hovering over the stylus. The Dual-View multi window mode, Pop Up Play, Smart Stay and Page Buddy are some of the functions that are controlled with the help of the stylus without even touching them.
Even though the tablet has been disclosed at the Mobile World Congress, it won’t be available on the market until the second quarter of 2013. The pricing details will be revealed at a later date, according to the organizers of the presentation.
