Samsung GT-N5100 Android 4.2 tablet to arrive at MWC 2013
According to a report from SamMobile, the South Korean electronics firm Samsung will launch a new tablet at the end of February as part of this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (25.02.13 – 28.02.13). The GT-N5100 will apparently be known as Galaxy Note 8.0 and appears to be the next portable device to join the Note line-up of tablets and phablets.
The report indicates that new Galaxy Note slate PC will be available in two variants – Wi-Fi and 3G. Both will feature a Super Clear LCD touchscreen display that measures 8 inches in diagonal and has a maximum supported resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels. Moreover, the system will be equipped with 2GB of internal RAM, 16- to 32GB of flash storage (can be further expanded by up to 32GB) and a 4600mAh battery.
The 330g (0.73lbs) GT-N5100 will run on an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system and as you would expect from a Note device, it will come with an S-Pen stylus (enhanced pressure sensitivity + better accuracy/control when writing). Other specs of Samsung’s alleged new tablet include Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and/or 3G radios complemented by an A-GPS receiver, a microSD card reader slot and USB 2.0 connectivity.
Codenamed “Kona”, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is presumably 7.95mm (0.31-inch) thick and offers two built-in cameras – a 5MP rear shooter and a 1.3MP front-facing web cam for video conferencing.
