Did the FCC Just Approve Approve the Samsung Note 8.0?

January 26, 2013 - Written By Christina Gardner

The last few weeks have been time for a lot of rumors. We have been hearing rumors and leaks about the Samsung Galaxy S IV, but more importantly is the Samsung Note 8.0. At first the things we heard about the Samsung Note 8.0 were fishy, but the leaks and rumors just kept trickling out each day with more information that made the Note 8.0 come to life and become more realistic.

Let’s do a quick recap of what has been released so far for the Samsun Note 8.0. Specs have been said to be:

  • 8″ display (1280×800 res)
  • 1.6 GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16 or 32GB Storage options
  • 5 MP Rear Camera
  • 1.3 MP Front-Facing Camera
  • Support for Micros SD
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ WiFi
  • A-GPS
  • 3G Support
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB 2.0
  • 4600 mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • S-Pen support and apps


So far we have had images and specs leaked about this device, so what do we have now? It has been said that this device (Note 8.0) has been spotted in the FCC. A model number of GT-N5110 shows as a Wi-Fi only tablet, containing 16GB internal storage, and a rounded “protruding camera lens” on the back . It has also been said that the model number GT-N5100 is the 3G version of the Samsung Note 8.0.

The picture below can show that it matches a lot of what has been leaked about the Samsung Note 8.0 already. This is all speculation of course, it’s hard to say what will become of the Samsung Note 8.0 without real confirmation, but I’m sure that most of specs will hold up in the long run.

Speculators are claiming that the Note 8.0 is going to surface and give its official presence at the Mobile World Congress in February, which could make this a very exciting event for all Android Lovers unlike CES.

Pricing for this device is still unknown, but has been said that it will be competing not only with the Nexus 7, but the iPad Mini as well. So it has been said that the price will be in above the Nexus 7, but no higher than the iPad Mini, which many have still claimed as being “too expensive.”

So now that we have released leaks from the FCC does this make the Samsung Note 8.0 more realistic to us? How do you feel? Lets us know below!
