Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 image leaks, but we doubt it’s the real thing
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, the newly rumored and allegedly confirmed 8-inch tablet equipped with a stylus by Samsung should be coming at MWC to rival the iPad mini, but an image has already surfaced that claims to show the tablet.

You can see it right below - it allegedly has a screengrab of an official image of the Galaxy Note 8.0 for what looks like a Spanish website. We get to see a white device with rounded corners resembling the Galaxy S III design. The back is fairly plain with only the Samsung logo on it and a flashless camera.

Below the image, the specs of the device are also listed in Spanish, and there is no full HD screen, but instead the 1,280 x 800-pixel display we initially heard about. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is listed with a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and HSPA+ cellular connectivity. The device comes with a 5-megapixel auto-focus rear camera and another, front facing 1.3MP camera.

However, there are a couple of things that are troubling about this allegedly leaked image. The first one is what’s on the screen of that device. We are seeing a mention of the now too old Galaxy Tab 2, and that would be weird, plus the Android black system tray on the bottom is oddly missing.

Is it real? We’re not convinced. How about you?

This is not the real thing at all. The ChatOn icon contains the old chat symbol. The current version has only C.

Why is it that phones and tablets don't position the rear camera in the center of the device?
