Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 spy shots pop up

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 spy shots pop up
We saw the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 in Samsung's leaked H1 roadmap the other day, and the boss JK Shin even confirmed we will be seeing more of it come launch time at the MWC next month.

What's left was to get some spy shots of the smaller S Pen tablet itself, and today is that day, leaked renders so far notwithstanding. First, the looks - the thing looks as the larger brother of the Galaxy S III and Note II, complete with an elliptical home button at the bottom when held in portrait mode. 

The stylus is tucked into a silo on the right hand side, where it belongs, and the overall looks confirm that Samsung is aiming to use one design language across its lineup of phones and tablets. As for the specs, everything we've heard so far gets reconfirmed, save for the fact that the screen is with 4:3 aspect ratio, and they are the same we saw in the leaked roadmap, too:

  • 8-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution
  • 1.6GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16/32GB storage
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • microSD support
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • A-GPS
  • 3G support
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB 2.0
  • 4600mAh battery
  • Weight: 330g
  • Size: 211.3×136.3×7.95 mm
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • S Pen support and apps

The rumored price so far has been $250-$300, depending on the configuration, though we are a bit puzzled hot the S Pen and digitizer won't add to the price, compared to an iPad mini, for instance. The larger Galaxy Note 10.1 didn't come cheap, but perhaps Samsung will be gunning for volume with the Note 8.0, so here's to hoping.
