While there’s been some speculation that Samsung may announce the Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress next month, it would seem the company is planning to announce a new tablet instead. According to SamMobile, Samsung (005930) is planning to unveil a mid-range 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet at the annual trade show in Barcelona. The slate is rumored to come with a 1280 x 800 display, 2GB of RAM and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The device may also include a microSD slot, 3G connectivity, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 4.2 and storage options of either 16GB or 32GB. Like Samsung’s other Note devices, the 8-inch tablet will also support the company’s unique S-Pen stylus.
