Unlike the its predecessor Galaxy Note 10.1, this device is designed for portrait style use and features an 8-inch 1,280 x 800 TFT display that is comparable to the Note 10.1's resolution. The screen will look noticeably better since they have boosted the overall pixel density to 189 pixels per inch. On the inside the Galaxy Note 8.0 will feature a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad processor, 2 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, GLONASS, HSPA+, a choice of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage (also has microSD expansion), and a 4,600mAh battery. According to sources, the new Note will ship with version 4.1.2 of Android's Jelly Bean OS.

Like previous Note models, it will come standard with the S Pen thus saving the expense of buying an aftermarket stylus.
