Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 recently reached the FCC, under the codenamed GT-N5110 and this is pretty much all the confirmation we need regarding the existence of the device. Samsung’s head of mobile, J.K Shin already confirmed that the device was real and thanks to this FCC biz, now it’s 100% a sure thing.


We also saw a hands on video and some pictures of the oversized phablet recently, complete with S Pen stylus and all that. The GT-N5110 sports WiFi and Bluetooth radios and it’s described as a “personal tablet”, filling the gap between the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1. The model number fits closely to the Exynos 4 Quad-based GT-N5100 spotted in benchmarks last month. The official documents for the device involve a 1.6 GHz processor and we also get DLNA support, among others.

The official pics shown a center mounted back camera, that seems to lack a flash, which would make sense, considering we’ve heard the Note 8.0 only comes with a 5 megapixel shooter. We also expect 2 GB of RAM, a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, 16 GB of storage at least, a microSD card slot and a powerful battery. We could even see the device launched before MWC 2013, since that seems to be a trend now.
