From GLBenchmark database, it seems like Samsung will likely to be releasing a version called Samsung Note 8. Specs including an 8-inch Super Clear display and a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and feature 2GB RAM, HSPA+ support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, 5MP and 1.3MP cameras, 16 or 32GB internal memory, microSD card slot and of course, the same S Pen just like the other Galaxy Note models.
So how well the purported Galaxy Note 8.0 would do against the iPad mini will come down to price. Unfortunately, that's one piece of info that did not leak to SamMobile, so we'll just have to wait to find out how aggressively Samsung would price the tablet. $249 would be a possibility?
We all know this will come sooner than later, as big as the enterprise mobile market is, Samsung is currently still lacking to gain any traction in terms of market share in the enterprise arena, but Mobile World Congress seems to be a great time and place for Samsung to make any type of announcements related to enterprise market for mobile.
According to the Boston-based brokerage firm Detwiler Fenton, it said this morning morning that Samsung plans to unveil a new enterprise platform at the Mobile World Congress trade show later this month that will compete with BlackBerry's next-generation BlackBerry 10 operating system.
Currently no much other details were provided, but the news definitely give downside to BlackBerry considering its reliance on the enterprise market. BlackBerry shares were trading down more than 3% on the news.
A new Huawei flagship smartphone will be introduced in April if all things go well for the company. This device will allegedly compete with Samsung's Galaxy S 4. It is said to feature a quad-core processor that is based on ARM Cortex A15 and will clock in at 1.8 GHz, 2 GB RAM, Mali GPU, 1080p display at 4.9 inches, and a 13 MP camera.
An April announcement might also be imminent despite that Ascend D2, Huawei's current flagship smartphone, is just 3 months old as of time of writing. Some think that this is an absurd move by Huawei to launch a new device that could potentially poach customers from the other, but the company's confidence on its new device could also mean something.
With specifications such as these and performance similar to the Galaxy S 4, this will be an affordable alternative to those who are looking for a feature-packed device at a more affordable price.
