Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with 3G reaches FCC for tests

updated 06:36 am EDT, Wed March 13, 2013

Version with LTE connectivity not yet seen in certification

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has made an appearance at the FCC for certification. The filing shows that the phablet will support a 3G carrier connection over 800MHz and 1900MHz bands, and suggests that it may go on sale at the same time as its previously-examined Wi-Fi counterpart, though not necessarily in the United States

Noted for having an 8-inch 1280x800 display, the Jelly Bean-based phone-tablet from Samsung uses an Exynos 4 Quad processor clocked at 1.6GHz, uses 2GB of RAM, and is powered by a 4,600mAh battery. Connectivity is provided over Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi, it uses A-GPS and GLONASS for navigation. Using Wacom technology, the Note 8.0 includes an S Pen stylus with pressure sensitivity and can receive input using hardware buttons while hovering the stylus above the screen.

While the device has visited the FCC and gained its 3G certification, it is more likely that an LTE-based version will go on sale in the US, leaving this model to be sold in other parts of the world. All versions of the Galaxy Note 8.0 are said to go on sale at some point in the second quarter, though a price is currently unknown.
