Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (Note 510) Photo Gallery
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 8.0 as the Note 510 for the Indian markets at the Samsung Forum 2013 in Hyderabad yesterday. We got some hands-on time with the 8-inch tablet at the event. It has a 8.0-inch (1280 × 800 pixels) TFT Super Clear LCD display at 189 ppi pixel density, powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. It comes with a S Pen, similar to the Note 10.1 (Note 800). You can also make calls and send or receive text messages.
There is a ear piece at the top along with proximity and ambient light sensors. There is also a 1.3MP front-facing camera.
There is a large home button below the display along with menu and back buttons on either sides. These capacitive touch buttons are responsive even when you touch it with the S Pen.
On the right side there is a power button, volume rocker and a Infrared (IR) sensor. This would let you use the tablet as a remote control for TVs using the Smart Remote app. There is a micro SIM slot and a micro SD card slot on the other side, since there was a flip cover on the tablet, we could not get a glimpse of it. It has chrome finish on the sides.
At the top there is a 3.5 mm audio jack.
There is a micro USB slot on the bottom, along with loud speaker grills on either sides.
There is a 5-megapixel camera on the back.
It has Dual View feature, that was first introduced in the Galaxy Note 2. It lets you run two applications on a single screen. You can hold the back button to bring up the quick app selection menu.
The connectivity features include, 3G HSPA＋ 21Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 & 5 GHz), Wi-Fi Direct,Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS ＋ GLONASS. It packs a 2GB RAM and a 4600 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note 510 is expected to go on sale in India by April or May. Check out our Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on video from the MWC 2013.
