Putting an end to the rumours, Galaxy Note 8 is out.
The eight inched version of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a built in stylus. The new device is not an exact cut down of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, but a small version with uprated specs. In Europe, the Galaxy Note 8 will have inbuilt 3G also. The Note 8 has a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, which is upgraded from the 1.4GHz model in the Galaxy Note 10.1. the device is significantly lighter, at 335g, which was 597g for Note 10.1. so, it will be easy to to carry around.
The stylus of Note 8 is not a mere pointing device. There are several stylus-specific functions built into the tablet's Android 4.1 OS, such as pressure-sensitivity and windows that pop up over whatever application you are currently using to help you take a quick note. Unlike on the Note 10.1, you can now use the S-Pen to tap the back and menu buttons under the Note 8's screen. The Note 8 has an improved multiscreen support, where two applications can be opened side by side, so you can watch a YouTube video while taking notes, for example. Definitely it decreases the distance between a tablet and a laptop.
The display of the device has a resolution of 1,280×800-pixel and a pixel density of 189ppi. The pixel density of Apple iPad Mini is 163ppi. The device has a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and it comes with 32GB or 64GB of storage. While LTE variants are in the works, the Galaxy Note 8.0 will initially offer cellular connectivity via HSPA+ — supplemented by Wi-Fi.
Though the specs are catchy, do not rush in to a decision to buy the device. The price of Samsung galaxy Note 8 is not yet out. The device will be shipped to North America, Europe, and other regions in the second quarter of the year.
