So it seems that the mysterious 8-inch Galaxy Note will have its moment in Barcelona, after all. Samsung’s Head of Mobile Communications, JK Shin, all but confirmed that the 8-inch tablet will be announced at the Mobile World Congress in the Catalan capital. Shin allegedly confirmed the device's existence to Korean news outlet iNews24 during an invitation only dinner involving Samsung’s new high-level officers and some members of the Korean press. However, no other details were provided by Shin.The 8-inch slate is expected to be the same mysterious GT-N5100 that popped up on numerous benchmarks a few days ago. As we had reported last week, the device, which will most likely compete with the iPad mini, will have an 8-inch LCD of the Wacom variety with a resolution of 1280 x 800. That’s the same amount of pixels as the big brother Galaxy Note 10.1, so the display will likely be crisper thanks to the higher pixel density. A 5 megapixel camera is expected to sit on the back, with a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
