8-inch Galaxy Note headed for MWC 2013 reveal according to Samsung boss

We've already heard about Samsung's supposedly upcoming 8-inch Galaxy Note, but so far, the company hasn't made any official announcement. If a new report from iNews24 is to be believed, then that will all be changing soon, with Samsung's JK Shin apparently confirming the device for MWC 2013. Perhaps this means a launch won't be too far behind? One can only hope.

Shin also took things a step further by saying the Note that's on display at MWC 2013 will have an 8-inch screen, which has been a rumored feature of the device for quite some time. If you're looking for more details on specifications from the Samsung executive, however, you're out of luck. Shin only confirmed the 8-inch screen, so we'll have to wait at least a bit longer for additional information to arrive.

According to some of the latest rumors, this 8-inch addition to the Galaxy Note tablet line will be displaying at 1200 x 800 resolution, feature a 5MP snapper around the back, and use 2GB of RAM. Reports on the CPU peg the tablet with either a quad-core Exynos 4 processor or an Exynos 5 Octa, the latest and greatest from Samsung that was revealed just a few weeks back during CES 2013. All in all it sounds like a decent tablet, but keep in mind that none of those internals have been confirmed by the company yet.

We've also been hearing rumors about a 6.5-inch Galaxy Note III, which would further blur the line between tablet and phone. That reported 6.5-inch display would dwarf the screens of the first two Galaxy Note phones, so if that rumor is accurate, then Samsung will be taking a pretty big risk with the Galaxy Note III. Group these rumors with the whispers of the Galaxy S IV, and we've got plenty of reasons to be excited for Samsung's 2013. Stay tuned.
