MWC 2013: Samsung announces Galaxy Note 8.0, brings along a quad-core CPU and voice call
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
When the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was announced in Barcelona yesterday, it didn’t come as a surprise. We had already heard about the unveiling from Samsung’s JK Shin, but it’s 100 percent official now.
Naturally, a Note device comes with an S Pen and the Note 8.0’s stylus has the usual suite of pen-optimised apps. Speaking of which, Samsung has updated the pen to work on the capacitive buttons sitting alongside the physical home button, so users don't have to make a transition from pen to finger when using the device.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with an updated S-Pen
It makes the whole thing look like an over-sized Galaxy Note2. Astonishingly, you can actually use this as your primary phone as it has voice-calling functionality out of the box. Yes, that’s right. Besides the Wi-Fi connectivity option, the SIM slot has HSPA+ support for data and voice. The body is a familiar Samsung piece of design made out of plastic and has a glossy coating and round edges like most of Samsung’s recent smartphones.
