The Note 8 tablet has features found in Galaxy Note products including the S-Pen stylus to take handwritten notes. The S-Pen's capabilities have been expanded to work with other applications. For instance, Kolhatkar showed the tablet's ability to combine a handwritten note with mapping. He used the S-Pen to write to a friend, telling him to meet him at a Starbucks in New York, linked the note to a Google map page showing the location, and sent the note over email.
The Note 8 will also be able to beam movies directly to a Samsung Smart TV through the AllShare feature, much like existing Galaxy smartphones and tablets. It will also function as a remote control for a wide range of TVs, Blu ray players and set-top boxes.
Other features include a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera. The device will come with 16GB or 32GB of storage, expandable to 64GB through an SD card slot. It has 2GB of built-in memory.
