Leaked photo shows Charcoal Black Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
One of our anonymous sources just brightened up our weekend by sending us a leaked promotional photo of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in Charcoal Black. The 8 inch tablet, just introduced at MWC 2013 last week in Barcelona, was designed by Samsung to compete with the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini. But unlike the latter device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 includes the S Pen which means that there are plenty of graphic intensive features on the slate that let you show off your creative side. 

Among the features is Smart Stay, which uses the front-facing camera to make sure that you are still awake. Once you start sleeping, so does your tablet. And with Android 4.1.2 installed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will have Project Butter making sure that the UI is responsive and smooth. Google Now pushes out the information you need (traffic, weather, sports, stock quotes) when you need it.

So what do you guys think about the Charcoal Black version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0? Will you go for this color, or stick to the Marble White version that has already been seen?

Thanks, anonymous tipster!

Looks dope. I definitely would have gotten my Note II in black had it been available.

Black is better. I really wanted to get this, but the resolution..... and this Samsung plastic again.....:-(

Honestly, I could care less about the plastic, but the screen resolution holds me back from getting their tablets so far.

Full HD would have been nice but since the tab 7.7 bombed with the aluminum and high PPI at the time AMOLED + screen they decided to just go low end., except when Google asked for high end.

Geez people, what's wrong with 1280x800? The stylus will offer you a 100x more functionality than a fancy 1080p screen which slows down graphics performance, pricing is the key here ... if Samsung gets this one right then this will be a hit....anything more than $320 then it's No Thank You....

the problem is the Waycom digitizer i think , current tech it supports is 1280x800 which is why almost all Notes had the same resoultion

But Still, I dont have any problem with the resolution, games and apps are maxed at 720p anyways and I could care less about 1080p movies bcoz they hog storage space. I think the Note 8 will comfortably beat any iPad in existence.

That's the point of it? Why it's called Note 8.0?

what i mean is that Samsung has gone back to the philosophy of making tablets blown up phones with this one by adding capacative keys and an earpiece and i'm not really a fan. the post 3.0 tablets were just fine.

Looks better than the white marble. I want this tab soon. :) Its price range is same as ipad mini right? I think this will be a good competitor for apple. :)

I find it funny how Samsung switched the table and made the black the limited edition version, a couple years ago people were dying to get a white version, which just shows that no matter how much we love something, we get tired of it and just revert back asking for what we originally refused

Black is sexier than white. i like black phones they stand out better than white phones. I hope we have a black version coming too the U.S. or at least put out more different colors too match our personalities don't go buy how many units of the color being bought by us the consumer give us the colors we like

Now, if Otter box would release a nice sleek otterbox commuter case for it, like they did for the RAZR I'll be all set!

That's dead sexy, wish my Note2 came in that color. Hell if they would drop a 64gb charcoal black Gn2 I'd swap for it in a heart beat!.
