Apple's 7.9-inch iPad mini is unfazed by competition from slightly smaller 7-inch tablets (with the exception of the Nexus 7 to an extent), and larger, bulkier 9+ inchers, so much so that it's denting output of the company's 9.7-inch iPad. Its belated response from Korean archrival Samsung is the Galaxy Note 8.0, which in addition to various storage-based sub-variants, comes in three main ones.
According to details leaked by Bluetooth SIG member website, the Galaxy Note 8.0 could arrive in three main variants. The GT-N5100 is the most affordable variant, featuring WiFi-only network connectivity. The GT-N5110 is the "better" variant, featuring a combination of 3G cellular (up to 21.1 Mbps) and WiFi. Leading the pack is the "best" GT-N5105, which features 4G LTE, in addition to 3G and WiFi.
The 8-incher features a 1280 x 800 pixels IPS LCD touchscreen with S-pen, Samsung's in-house Exynos quad-core SoC, 2 GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel primary camera, and Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" operating system that's augmented by Samsung's "premium suite" UI customizations (such as multi-window).
