Samsung today announced the South West Asian version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 – and it’s called the Galaxy Note 510. The reason for renaming the 8″ slate is still mysterious.
The devices is slated for a launch on the Indian market and perhaps some other South West Asian markets too. Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 aka Galaxy Note 510 is a new addition to Samsung’s range of tablets – it slots somewhere in-between the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Note II. As we already know, the slate comes with a TFT display with 1280 x 800p resolution and 189ppi pixel density. The tablet is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor along with 2 GB of RAM and has a microSD slot.
Samsung Galaxy Note 510 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features a 5-megapixel camera at the back and 1.3-megapixel in the front. The tablet is powered by a 4,600mAH battery and comes with a range of latest connectivity options.
The S Pen stylus adds the touch of class to the tablet along with other unique features like Smart Stay, Smart Rotation, Paper Artist, Photo Note, Easy Clip and many such apps.
Unfortunately, there is no confirmation on the pricing and the availability of the tablet on the Indian market, but some German stores have already announced their pricetags. Meanwhile, we have already had a chance to preview the device at the MWC. Check out our hands-on report.
