Recently, JK Shin, Samsung’s head of mobile, confirmed that the successor of the Galaxy Note 2 will make its debut at MWC 2013 in Barcelona towards the end of February. It looks like, however, that the device was leaked before its official unveiling.
The leaked photo was sent to blog site, SamMobile, through a Twitter account. Sadly the account is in lockdown, so there’s no way to verify the photo.
The photo reveals that Galaxy Note 8.0 sports an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.6GHz quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
The photo also mentions HSPA+, which suggests that the device will sport a SIM card slot. This means that it can connect to a phone network for mobile data. This also means that it may allow users to make calls. We just find it strange trying to place an 8-inch device over your ear to make calls.
The photo reveals the device’s specs, but doesn’t reveal its price tag. However, due to its size, we’re guessing it will compete against the Google Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad mini. So we’re hoping the device is as cheap as the Nexus 7, which will set you back a mere £160.
