Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 gets renamed as Galaxy Note 510 in India
Fresh from its official unveiling at the Mobile World Congress 2013, where we had the pleasure of taking the Galaxy Note 8.0 for a quick ride, the latest member of the Note family was also introduced by Samsung in India, but not without first making some changes to its name.
Say goodbye to the Galaxy Note 8.0 and meet the Galaxy Note 510 – at least for the Indian market.
The name change aside, it’s still the same 8-inch Galaxy Note that you’ve been craving for ever since details about the device first leaked back in January. The specs include a WXGA (1,200 x 800 resolution) TFT display, a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB internal storage with microSD support, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front cam, S Pen, 4,600mAh battery, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
If you’re hoping to hear some pricing and availability information, we have to disappoint you for now, as Samsung is still keeping mum about them. However, we heard that the WiFi variant might be offered for €499 (16GB) and €599 (32GB) in Europe, though another source puts it at €359.
