Plenty of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 rumors have been making the rounds ahead of Mobile World Congress, The device has been more or less confirmed to debut at the show, but up until now all has been talk. This first look puts a face to the rumors, and it’s not a bad looking face.
The Note 8.0 looks to take Samsung’s nature-inspired design found in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 and blow it up a few inches. The rounded shape certainly won’t be confused with an iPad mini, — the back of the slate looks more like a stretched out version of the Note.
This image appears to come from some sort of catalog listing, which is a bit curious considering the tablet isn’t supposed to be unveiled for almost a month. Along with the image comes a list of specs reiterating what we have heard before: 8-inch 1280×800 display, 16GB internal storage, 5MP camera, quad-core 1.6GHz processing, and 2GB RAM.
The Note 8.0 could be one of the last devices we see using Samsung’s current-gen design language. The launch of the Galaxy S4 will likely define a new look for Samsung’s remaining 2013 models.
