I saw it on phonearena website, it mention that this SGN8.0 don't have LED on the camera.

Anyway, I'm waiting for Samsung to announce it, consider to buy this for reading & some light entertainment on movie & surfing.

If on Jelly Bean, not sure will it still have the feature of Multiscreen.
I love that feature though.

The thinness


The S Pen


The Micro SD card on Top left


SIM card on Bottom left


How it look like with the Shortcut menu on the left.

Do agree that the thick bezel made it look awful. This was the exact reason why I previously stuck with Tab 7.0 plus and not Tab 2 7.0.
and after that upgraded to note 10.1

Apparently, Engadget US has gotten a test set and did some hands-on

The Hands-on Review
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 preview: an 8-inch S Pen tablet that's also a phone


Comparing Note 8.0 with Note 2 (BACK)


Comparing Note 8.0 with Note 2 (BACK) No Flash... a bit disappointed.

The POWER/SLEEP button. VOLUME JOG KEY and the IR outlet to communicate with Samsung related products like SMART TV and Laptops
From this photo, it seems like the back camera lens is sticking out a bit...


The S Note UI given a new facelift. looks nicer


Multi-tasking... the distortion is quite similar to Note 10.1


For those who like to read on tablet... Note 8.0 has a "READING MODE", which transform the appearance and lighting to more "paper-like"


Should be Android 4.1.2 straight out of the box.
GT-N5100


Seems to be a normal SIM card size. don't seem to be micro-SIM


Using same micro-USB as Note 2. but the voltage should be more on the Tab series, which requires 2.0A and above. two micro speakers on the side.


Seems like the Internet explorer UI is also updated

So the question goes again: "Which one should I be choosing? iPad Mini or Galaxy Note 8.0 or Nexus 7?"
