Sam­sung, due mid-year. sam­ Sam­sung’s last Galaxy Note de­vice looked like a phone and acted like a tablet. This new de­vice will look like a tablet but act like a phone. The Galaxy Note 8.0, as its name sug­gests, is an 8-inch tablet de­signed for high-pow­ered op­er­a­tions. Weigh­ing 338g and just 7.9cm thick, it is frac­tion­ally big­ger than its ri­val Ap­ple iPad Mini, but it features a lot more grunt thanks to a 1.6GHz quad-core pro­ces­sor and 2GB RAM. The larger Notewill also fea­ture cam­eras front and back, an S Pen sty­lus for on­screen hand­writ­ing, space for a me­mory card, and ei­ther 16GB or 32GB of stor­age. But, un­usu­ally, user­swill be able to make phone calls from this tablet, mak­ing video calls easy even when out­sidewi-fi range.
