The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has yet to make its official debut, but that hasn’t stopped it from showing up in leak after leak.
Besides the obvious opportunity for comparison here, there’s one important thing to note (pun intended): while some have been calling this rumored device the Galaxy Note 8.0, others, including FrAndroid, refer to it as the Galaxy Tab 8.0.
Of course, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, since there’s already a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0; but the point is that the name might be up in the air.
That’s aside from its signature S Pen, which appears to be fully photographed for the first time here.
It’s difficult to tell, but the white Galaxy Note 8.0 stylus looks like it could be slightly thicker than the Note 2′s pen.
Regardless, it’s interesting to see the two devices side-by-side, especially considering that the Note 8.0, based on what’s been leaked so far, appears to share its smaller brethren’s portrait orientation rather than the landscape mode of the larger Galaxy Note 10.1.
Debut at MWC
The Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to pack an 8-inch, 1280 x 800 display, a quad-core processor, 2GB of memory, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and Android Jelly Bean.
Of course, these could all be fake, but the Note 8.0 does seem pretty real – Samsung even confirmed it.
TechRadar will be on site in Barcelona to bring you that and more news from the event.
