Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 is just round the corner and there are plenty of rumours regarding what we may see at this gala event. We had reported a few days ago
that Samsung might be adding an 8-inch device to its Galaxy Note line-up at this event.
A Korean website, iNews24 is now claiming that it is almost certain that Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will make an appearance at the MWC 2013. The website claims to have got this bit of information from Samsung's chief of Mobile Communications JK Shin.
It is noteworthy, that iNews24 is the same website that had earlier managed to get a confirmation regarding Samsung Galaxy S3 mini from Shin. So one has reasons to be believe that they might be on target even in regards to Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.
Apart from the screen size, there is no new official information available regarding the specs for this tablet. As per the previous rumours, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to include 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 4600mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, option of 16 or 32GB as internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera. It is likely to run on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Other connectivity options may include Bluetooth version 4.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and A-GPS.
There are also speculations doing that rounds that Samsung may launch two versions of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 - Samsung GT-N5100, which will be a 3G+Wi-Fi version and the GT-N5110, which will be a Wi-Fi only version.
If Galaxy Note 8.0 indeed comes with the above mentioned set of specifications and is priced competitively, it may be an interesting tablet to watch out for in 2013.
