It would appear that Samsung will indeed be showing off their fabled Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet this coming week at Mobile World Congress 2013. We've been sent a sort of spy-shot of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 being blasted on a large screen inside the new MWC convention location - the show still being set up in a very large way. True to what we've seen in several leaked bits and pieces over the past couple of weeks, this device is everything you might expect it to be - with an 8-inch screen!
What we're seeing here is tablet device that's ever-so-slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, this time sporting much of the same look and the S-Pen that the most recent Galaxy Tab lineup works with. This device appears to be very much working along the lines of the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, complete with a similar-sized bezel, silvery rim, and 2nd-gen S-Pen. We also know now that it comes in white - surprise!
Other than that it's a relative mystery as to what we're going to work with. One of the stranger bits we're seeing here is the inclusion of the earpiece speaker that we'd otherwise only see on a Galaxy Note II or smaller handset. Generally this kind of speaker is made for holding up to your ear - could this be the largest smartphone yet?
