Did Samsung accidentally show us the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0?
A Garnet Red version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is now available. To help get the word out, Sammy sent out one of those pictures it is known for, using a Korean model and of course, a chef. While that is great and all, the more interesting part of the photo is the background where it would seem that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has appeared. The tablet has been seen before thanks to earlier spy shots, and we do have to say that it looks to be the spitting image of the earlier pictures.

Is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in the background?

Is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in the background?

With an 8 inch screen, we don't need a piano to drop on our heads to understand exactly which competing device the Korean manufacturer is aiming for with this tablet. With a rumored 8 inch 1280 x 800 screen, a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and the S Pen, the talked about $250-$300 price would seem to leave the competition in the dust. Which is why the rumored sequel to that competitor's tablet is supposed to offer a Retina display (Darn! We gave away the name of the competitor).

We are expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 at MWC in Barcelona in just a bit more than a week from now. Keep your eyes right here!

That looks more like the Galaxy Tab 42.0, coming out in 2021. 42 inches of Touchwiz glory.

My guesstimate for this device would be $400- $430 considering how overpriced their mid-range products are

Galaxy tab 2 is now 199$. Why would they charge 400$ on a 8" when the ipad mini is over 329$-500$

It is almost on par with the Note 2...wacom technology aint cheap and you know that...$300-$350 is a bit far fetched IMO

Hopefully there will be some good covers that can be slapped on it.
