It looks like there may be a Galaxy Note 8.0 in the works and it might just be revealed at Mobile World Congress. The tablet at hand, called the GT-N5100, or GT-N5110 WiFi only version, as Samsung’s naming scheme goes, will actually be geared more toward the budget crowd. It will feature an 8.0″ 1280×800 Super Clear LCD display up front, which will make it a direct competitor to the iPad Mini. It’ll also feature 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage with a microSD card slot, something not enough tablets offer. Unfortunately, the processor spec has not been revealed. And of course, as with all Notes, it comes with an S Pen. Here’s a full list of specs:
