Sony’s vice-president announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 would be formally announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MVC) at the end of February.

The Korean company has shown interest in introducing a smaller device: cheaper and easier to carry around.

There is enough speculation about an alleged picture of the new device, as well as its hardware specifications. The leaked image features a sharp-looking mini-tablet running Android, with it taking full advantage of the larger-than-usual screen.

The hardware specifications are quite great as well:

Leaked Specs for Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0:

  • 2GB of RAM,
  • 16 or 32GB of storage
  • A microSD card (supporting up to 32GB)
  • 1.6GHz quad-core processor.
  • 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front.
  • USB 2.0 to 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS.

Between now and February 28th, there will surely be more information available, even before the official announcement. For now only there not too much to talk about it. Let us wait and see what is coming in future till it is announced.
