We’re just about a month away from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where we’re expecting a bunch of news. What’s around the bend from Samsung? We recently stumbled upon a product portfolio that contains the firm’s first half 2013 products, including new devices such as the Galaxy Note 8.0, the Galaxy Pocket Plus, the Galaxy Young and the Galaxy X Cover 2.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is scheduled to launch in March and packs an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, support for S Note, S Memo and S Planner, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.0, a 4,600mAh battery and “E-Book” support. Support for 3G/2G frequency bands suggests Samsung is working to launch the device with carrier partners, too.
