The Samsung team does not rest! Here we are discussing another impressive device. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 which was announced in Februrary 2013 and is expected to be launched in the second quarter of the same year. This device has been designed to give a direct competition to the ipad mini which was launched in the end of 2012.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has an 8” TFT capacitive screen which features 1,280 x 800-pixels. This might not be the best display around but the TFT makes it quite a crisp view.
It supports a micro SIM which can be used for internet, calling and texting *thumbs up*
The size of the Samsung Note 8.0 is 8.30” x 5.35” x 0.31” and weighs about338gms. The body would be made of the glossy plastic which is a usual component of the Samsung devices.
The tablet is expected to come in two variable internal storages i.e 16gb and 32gb which can be further extended by adding a micro SD upto 64Gb (way to go Samsung!)
With such a big internal memory, the tab comes in a very light weight of 338gms.

The over all design and technical specifications of the Samsung Note 8 seem quite promising. However, the success of this device will be widely dependent on the price. The ipad mini costs 329$ (US) and if Samsung wishes to give competition to the ipad mini, they will have to keep the price lesser. Nonetheless, it is being rumoured that this does not seem possible with Samsung at the moment.
One major advantage that the Note 8 will have over the ipad mini is its usage as a phone. Since, the Samsung Note 8 will be supporting sms, mms and calls. Hence, its usability as a phone is also a possibility which can increase its popularity.
Lets just hope that the Note 8 is launched at a cheaper price than the ipad mini.
