Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 could be arriving on US retail shelves sooner than was previously thought. In a filing with the FCC, Samsung has submitted the "phablet" for review.
Based off the filing, the Galaxy Note 8.0 will feature 3G carrier support in the 800MHz and 1900MHz bands and suggest that it could be released for sale alongside it's WiFi only counterpart. It is expected however, that while the filing was for a 3G device, the US model will in fact feature LTE instead.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is by far the largest smartphone we have seen and features an 8-inch 1280 x 800 display, 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and will run Android Jellybean. It will include the beloved S Pen stylus and will feature Bluetooth 4.0. I am not fully sold on these so-called "Phablets" I just feel that an 8" phone would be more of an obstruction than a productivity device.
What are your thoughts on these new super large smartphones?
