The Note 8.0 has an 8-inch screen, slightly larger than the iPad's 7.9-inch screen, and will include the company's stylus, the S Pen.
Resolution is better than that of the iPad Mini, at 1280x800 and under the hood is a 1.6GHz A9 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, dual cameras 1.3MP/5MP, and either 16GB or 32GB of storage that is expandable with a microSD slot. The device also has an IR blaster and includes "Smart Remote," a Peel-powered app that turns the tablet into an interactive TV remote.
The device will come with Android 4.1.2 and Samsung's own TouchWiz UX overlay. The device will also include HSPA+ or LTE depending on your market, and will be able to make phone calls if your carrier supports it.
As with all new Note hardware, the Note 8.0 will support multi-window mode, and the rest of Samsung's Premiere suite of apps.
The Note 8.0 will be available by the end of the Q2, with pricing unknown at this time.
