Samsung's newest addition to the Note series uses an 8-inch display. But don’t worry, it still comes with the same special S Pen stylus and apps that gave the original its name.
The device was announced just ahead of the start of Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona on 24 February by the South Korean handset maker.
Under its glossy white exterior lies a 1.6GHz quad-core A9 processor and 2GB RAM that keeps the Note 8 ticking along nicely. In ZDNet's short hands-on testing the device showed no sign of lagging or stuttering that can ruin user experience in some devices.
However, as its name suggests, the Note 8.0's main focus is on its expansive 8-inch display, which puts it in direct competition with the likes of the iPad Mini as well as other 7 or 8-inch tablets like the Nexus 7.
The 8-inch display has a 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and a 189 PPI (pixels per inch) pixel density, edging out the iPad Mini's 163 PPI.
