Android Devices, Rumors, Samsung Tablets


Several days ago, we reported on the likelihood that Samsung would introduce a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 come Mobile World Congress 2013.  Today, a Korean news blog is reporting that J.K. Shin confirmed the existence of a 8 inch Galaxy Note tablet.  We’re hoping Samsung markets it as a tablet, but who knows, it could be another phablet device.

The same blog correctly reported on the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, so the blog seems to be well connected.  At this time, Shin only confirmed the screen size of 8 inches, but we have a previous rumor that discusses possible hardware.  Specs and features include an 8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, 4600 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 5MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 16GB/32GB of onboard storage, microSD memory expansion, and I imagine the processor will be of the quad-core Exynos variety.  Since it is branded under Galaxy Note, it will presumably include S-Pen integration.

Stay tuned for MWC 2013, in which we will finally come to learn whether Samsung intends to launch an 8 inch Galaxy Note tablet or not.
