Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 to be released in April

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 is rumoured to be hitting shelves in the UK next month.

According to the product registration page on Carphone Warehouse’s website, the forthcoming tablet from the Korean firm is set to arrive in the coming weeks, but only a Wi-Fi version of the device is accounted for.

Meanwhile, online retailer Expansys unveiled a price tag for the gadget, claiming the 16GB Galaxy Note 8.0 with Wi-Fi-only connectivity will set consumers back £349.99.

However, the source later confirmed to TechRadar that there was an “error” in its announcement and it is still waiting on official pricing from suppliers.

Tech enthusiasts should expect the tablet to be relatively dear, given its specifications. It boasts a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, while is also has microSD card expansion of up to 64GB and a five-megapixel rear-mounted camera.

Other features of the device – which is light at 338g – include an eight-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, plus full compatibility with the paired S-Pen stylus and 2GB of random access memory.
