SamMobile is saying they’ve confirmed specs for Samsung’s next Note device, the GT-N5100. The un-cited report offers very specific information, including a name change to the Galaxy Note 8.0. As the name implies, it’s an 8-inch tablet to compete with the Nexus 7, Kindle Fire and iPad Mini. It would fill the stylus gap between the Note II and Note 10.1 for those hooked on the S-Pen.
The Note 8.0 will run Android 4.2, feature a 1280×800 TFT (Super Clear LCD) display, front and rear-facing cameras (5 MP rear, 1.3 MP front), 4600 mAh battery, 2 GB RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 16 & 32 GB of internal storage and a lovely MicroSD slot. The tablet, measuring 211.3×136.3×7.95 mm, will be offered in a WiFi only (GT-N5110) and GSM version (GT-N5100). Samsung’s official announcement is expected in just over a month at Mobile World Congress.
