What’s most interesting, is that SamMobile points out that this should be a cheap alternative to the iPad mini, and if Samsung manages to price this low enough, we can see Apple having one more reason to be worried.
The existence of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is of course not officially confirmed by the Korean company, but judging by the overall good track record of SamMobile where the rumor originates from, there are good chances to soon see this device. We've also seen numerous leaks of the device under its GT-N5100 codename with the first leaks being from around October.
Once again, we are seeing Samsung being Samsung, extremely quickly reacting to what it sees as successful devices. If it manages to stay away from lawsuits here, there is plenty of reasons to get excited, just take a look at the first leaked benchmark results right below.
