What to expectations for Galaxy Note 8.0

There have been a lot of rumors lately about the latest Galaxy Note variant, Galaxy Note 8.0. As the name suggests, it will be an 8-inch tablet with a built in S-Pen stylus. It will likely be announced at Mobile World Congress later next month.

This tablet seems a lot like a smaller version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. The size also seems more practical. Personally, I enjoy using tablets around 7-inches more than 10-inch ones. The Galaxy Note 8.0 seems to suffer the same fatal flaw that the Galaxy Note 10.1 suffered – the 1280 x 800 screen resolution. At least the pixel density will be slightly higher on this 8-inch model.
