Samsung’s response to Apple’s iPad mini was unveiled at MWC 2013 – the Galaxy Note 8.0 – where we had a chance to play with the device, whose existence wasn’t really a secret as we got ready for the official announcement.
At the event, we only took the white version for a first hands-on preview and we compared it with the iPad mini and the Nexus 7, but today we’re going to show you the Charcoal Black Galaxy Note 8 version that was apparently leaked.
The black Galaxy Note 8 is yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but considering that the iPad mini comes in black and white we wouldn’t be surprised to see this Charcoal Black model become official. Not to mention that Samsung is already used to launching differently colored versions of its newest devices at some time after the official announcement, so a black Galaxy Note 8 would make plenty of sense.
In case you haven’t been keeping tabs on MWC 2013 this week, we’ll remind you that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature an 8-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB memory, microSD support up to 64GB, 5-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel rear-facing camera, voice call support, 4600mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Will you buy a Galaxy Note 8 this year?
