Good news for the AT&T customers who have been waiting for the 4G LTE-connected Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. The tab is coming exclusively to the AT&T network in the coming weeks. During the summers this year, AT&T customers will be able to get their hands on the LTE variant of Galaxy Note 8.0.
The announcement was made by AT&T on its official website, but there were no details about pricing, plans and the exact release date. Even the mobile operator did not mention the color of the tablet which will be available for sale, so we assume that at least in the starting the carrier will sell the white variant of the tab. Further according to some rumors, the black model of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is in development and will hit the stores in mid-July.
Chris Penrose, Senior Vice President – Emerging Devices, AT&T noted:
Demand for 4G LTE-connected tablets is growing, and we’re offering our customers the most choice and the best portfolio. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is an awesome tablet and flies on 4G LTE. We expect customers to be excited about the Galaxy Note 8.0’s versatility that makes its useful for work and entertainment.
Besides the announcement, AT&T has also posted a video presenting Galaxy Note 8′s most significant features, which you can watch below.
Being the Galaxy Note device, the Galaxy Note 8.0 features the S Pen along with its 8-inch 1280 x 800p display. It sports a 1.6 GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of on-board RAM, 16GB of internal memory that can be extended up to 32GB via the MicroSD card slot, a 4,600mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The Note comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-shooter camera, LTE connectivity, and Wi-Fi. It also includes multi-window support for better multi-tasking, Samsung WatchOn, and Air View on the software front.
Additionally, the customers will get 50GB of free online storage with AT&T Locker (it will be pushed to the device via a software update soon after the release) to store their content and access it from multiple devices easily.
At the moment, we do not have the dates for pre-orders either, but we expect that AT&T will give out detailed information about when and how the device will be made available in the near future.
