Samsung is rumored to be working on an 8″ tablet because for the simple reason that it can.
According to Sammobile, Samsung is perking up on the idea of a small-scale tablet and is looking to go head-to-head with iPad Mini and Kindle Fire HD with its own 8-inch tablet.
The tablet, apparently named Galaxy Note 8.0, will sport 1280×800 TFT display, 5MP camera on the back and 1.3MP camera in the front, 2GB of RAM, and a microSD slot for additional memory. The tablet will be launched in 2 varieties, 16GB and 32GB, as well as 3G+ WiFi and WiFi only versions. The Note 8.0 will be equipped with a massive 4600 Mah battery and the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Note 8.0 will join Samsung’s already crowded lineup of Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab tablets, but has that ever stopped anyone from making new hardware? Samsung is expected to debut Galaxy Note 8.0 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
