Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 gets FCC’s approval

    Galaxy-Note-8.0-FCC

    Prior to its official unveiling, details about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 have been leaking left and right, leaving very little room for imagination and speculation when it comes to its specs. Providing an extra clue is the 8-inch Galaxy Note’s FCC pitstop.

    Bearing the model number GT-N5110, the FCC filing reveals that this particular Galaxy Note 8.0 is a WiFi-only “personal tablet” that boasts a 16GB internal storage. It’s possible that the GT-N5100 model will be its 3G variant.

    Meanwhile, the diagram of the device seems to match leaked real world pictures of the Note 8.0. So yes, the mini tablet will have a protruding round camera lens on its back. While the filing doesn’t reveal anything new, at least we know that there won’t be any hold up in its release — particularly for folks in the U.S. — once Samsung makes it official.

    The Galaxy Note 8.0 is likely to become Samsung’s main attraction at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2013 in February. Are you looking forward to it?

      No and no! If this is the main attraction, we’re in trouble. I’m enjoying Samsung’s progress, but this is a stretched out Note 2. There seems to be a general consensus in comments that this thing is ugly and the specs are not enough to justify having this and a Note 2 or to pick this up over a Nexus 7.

      Sorry Sammy, this seems like a real Apple move, not an innovative one. You just resized your existing product, removed some functionality and called it a new shabang! Can’t help you with this one, giving money to someone who is trying to earn it.

        I’d get this in a heartbeat, sorry. I love my Nexus 7, but there are a few things I sure wish it had. To say it’s ugly from the drawing in this article, is beyond stretching it. I don’t believe there have been any pictures leaked, correct me if I’m wrong.

        Without any specs, other than storage, you’re only speculating that it is just stretched out and hobbled.

        Will it be the only thing at MWC, no, but I’m for one, am glad it will be there and coming to retail, really soon!

      Just the fact that it has expandable memory has me interested over any of the Nexus products.
