Galaxy Note 8

Could Samsung's 8-inch, stylus-centric tablet be headed to AT&T?

After last month's Wifi-only launch, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 could be making its way to AT&T in the near future. An LTE-capable version of the device carrying the product number SGH-I467 has just passed by the FCC for certification, and it's packing support for LTE bands II, IV, V and XVII. That means it's got all the parts necessary to function on AT&T's 4G LTE network in the U.S.

The Note 8 is essentially an 8-inch tablet composed of Galaxy Note 2 innards. You've got a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos chip doing the number-crunching, backed up by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 1280x800 display resolution and TouchWiz'd Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Naturally, the Note 8's FCC appearance precedes any announcement from AT&T, but when it arrives we hope the pricing will be a bit more reasonable than that of the $400 Wifi-only version.
