We have some more information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 to bring you now and it is good news. Samsung has confirmed that the device will be unveiled at MWC 2013 and after a recent outing of some early pictures of the device, we now have some more eye candy to show you – with the picture revealing a major feature of the device if confirmed to be legit.
Unlike the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 which may not come with a physical home button, the image we have to show you above appears to suggest that Samsung’s 8-inch Galaxy Note 8.0 will come with a home button in tact. Along with a home button, we also see what the included S-Pen looks like up close, since previous shots of the device in the wild appeared to hide the S-Pen slot from view.
The big talking point though is the inclusion of a Phone application, which appears to suggest that the Galaxy Note 8.0 with its large screen will still come with phone capabilities. It goes without saying though that this will be only be appealing to a select few, as consumers won’t be making a habit of holding the tablet up their ears to take a call in public.
It’s nice to see Samsung include the feature though if it turns out to be true. You can also see the nice multi-window feature in action that Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 users are currently enjoying. For a device that is rumored to be costing around $400 dollars though, is it still on your shopping list this year or not?
We still have a while to go until the MWC festivities kick off in Barcelona, so we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more Galaxy Note 8.0 leaks before then. Take a look at the new shot and let us know if you are tempted by this device or not – are you surprised by the Phone application?
