The folks of, a pretty well known source of rumors and leaks related to Samsung have published what seems to be the first picture of the Galaxy Note 8.0. The device was rumored for the past week or so and apparently it has been confirmed by Samsung bigshots in the meantime. Samsung’s J.K. Shin already went ahead and confirmed the product for MWC 2013.


The device is supposed to use a 1280 x 800 Super Clear TF display and a 1.6 GHz quad core processor, plus it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. Codenamed Kona, this product uses Android 4.2 and supports both 3G and WiFi. It could even have a phone feature, that seems very likely considering previous models with similar diagonals had such a feature. Other specs include a 4600 mAh battery and a 8 inch TFT Super Clear LCD 1280 x 800 pixel display.

The slate measures 7.95 mm in thickness, weighs 330 grams and has a 5 megapixel camera at the back, plus a 1.3 megapixel camera upfront. Inside it there’s a 1.6 GHz quad core CPU, as well as 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The design of the device reminds me of a smaller Nexus 10, if I can say so. Fake or real, what do you think?
