The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, with a screen size of 8 inches, has a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor while being supported by 2 GB of RAM.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with an on-board storage of 16/32 GB which can be further expanded up to 64 GB with a microSD card. The tablet is equipped with dual cameras: a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and runs on the Android Jelly Bean OS while being powered by a Li-ion 4,600 mAh battery.

The device also has the optimised Samsung S-Pen which helps to increase everyday usability. Removing the S-Pen from the device will automatically launch innovative features such as Pen Detection that will suggest adapted menus. With the advanced Air View, the S-Pen needs only to hover over the screen to see previews of the files or application without even having to open it. Users will now be able to control the capacitive back and menu buttons using the S-Pen on Note 8.0 too.
