We’ve heard bits and pieces about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in the last week or so. We had it confirmed by Samsung’s J K Shin that the Galaxy Note 8.0 would launch at the Mobile World Congress in February 2013. Then we saw some advertising imagery shown around the web.
Now it looks like we have the first decent quality photos of the device itself, demonstrating the included S-Pen and companion software.
As with the rest of the Samsung line, the Galaxy Note 8.0 appears to be running the TouchWiz UI, however those familiar with Samsung’s previous tablets might notice that the launcher style is more reminiscent of the phone version of TouchWiz rather than the tablet version. There are rumours that this will be the new style of launcher on phone and tablet alike for Android 4.2+, which the Note 8.0 is likely to be as well.
