Samsung has released several well-received tablets. These include the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and the first-generation Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As its other major flagship devices make headlines, a concept of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 2014 surfaced. With the concept by Ancel Lim, there are talks that it can be the next iPad Killer.
According to the concept, the second-generation Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature WiFi and LTE support. The slate will also have a 1280 x 800 resolution. The device will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Some reports said it would be better if Samsung can consider putting Android 4.4 KitKat instead. This is possible although the Korean tech giant has not yet made announcements.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 will run on Exynos 5 Octa processor. There will be two primary variants: black and white. The concept featured design inspirations from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The render also had fake leather on the back of the slate.
Some sources agreed the design seems a good competitor against the iPad Mini 2 Retina. If Samsung can deliver a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the same standard as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 then it could be a real iPad killer.
CNET previously called the first-generation Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as "best-looking small tablet screen." The Web site also claimed the S-Pen feels natural. The design and stylus make a stunning combination offering consumers a premium tablet.
Phone Arena has praised the first-generation Note 8 for its quad-core processor and lots of RAM. This allows people to navigate and accomplish tasks fast. Other notable features include expandable storage, light weight and thin body.
The first-generation Galaxy Note 8 also comes with a TFT capacitative touchscreen, 16M colors that offer 800 x 1200 pixels, 8-inch display with a 189 ppi pixel density.
If Samsung can improve the features of its 2014 edition, including a new design, then it can have a solid product against Apple's iPad Mini 2. The iPad Mini 2 has been receiving good reviews since its release.
