The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is an 8-inch Android-based tablet computer produced and marketed by Samsung Electronics.[5] It belongs to the second generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note series tablets, which also includes a 10.1-inch model, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. It was announced on 23 February 2013, and launched in the US on 11 April 2013. Unlike the 10.1 inch tablet, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is a new size category in the Note series and making its debut at this generation of Note Tablets which like its phablet siblings, also sports Samsung's S-Pen stylus. It is also Samsung's first 8-inch tablet which was followed later on by the release of its lower-end sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0.


The Galaxy Note 8.0 was announced on 23 February 2013.[5] It was shown along with the Galaxy S4 at the 2013 Mobile World Conference. Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8.0 would be released in the US on 11 April, with a price of $399.99 for the 16GB model.[6]


The Galaxy Note 8.0 is released with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. An upgrade to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is available in some areas as an over-the-air update and through Samsung Kies. In February 2014, Samsung included the Galaxy Note 8.0 on their upgrade list for Android 4.4 Kit Kat.[7] Roll out of the Android 4.4 update began May 12, 2014.[8] On June 4, 2014, Samsung announced the 4.4 update for U.S. tablets. The Android 4.4 update included updated TouchWiz applications, but, with the notable and inexplicable elimination of its crucial handwriting preferences, largely retained the tablet's original feature set. Bluetooth low energy capability was enabled with the Android 4.4 firmware update.

Samsung has customized the interface with its TouchWiz UX software. As well as apps from Google, including Google Play, Gmail and YouTube, it has access to Samsung apps such as ChatON, S Note, S Suggest, S Voice, S Translator, S Planner, Smart Remote (Peel), Smart Stay, Multi-Window, Group Play, and All Share Play.[2] The Camera User Interface is known from the Galaxy S3.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is available in WiFi-only, 3G & WiFi, and 4G/LTE & WiFi variants. Storage ranges from 16 GB to 32 GB depending on the model, with a microSDXC card slot for expansion. It has an 8-inch WXGA TFT screen with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. It also features a 1.3 MP front camera and 5.0 MP AF rear-facing camera without flash. It also has the ability to record HD videos.[3][4]
