Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 vs. Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Specs, Benchmark Comparisons
Samsung is gearing up to release its Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, the successor to the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Tablet devices were introduced by the Korean mobile giant in 2010 with the introduction of the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Samsung then went on to offer consumers larger sized tablets with display of 7.7 inches, 8.9 inches and 10.1 inches.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus was released one year after the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab. Samsung updated the processor to a 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos 4210 processor, .2GHz more than its single-core predecessor. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus features a 7-inch In-Plane Switching (PLS) LCD display panel with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The original Galaxy Tab has the same resolution but uses Thin-film-transistor, (TFT) technology instead for the display.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage, expandable up to an additional 32GB through the microSD slot. A non-removable 4000 mAh Li-ion battery runs the tablet.
Android 3.2 Honeycomb runs on the stock Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, updatable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Earlier this month, Samsung rolled out the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet will come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean software and runs a quad-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 4412. Samsung opted for TFT technology for the 8-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. The Note 8.0 also comes with a choice of either 16 GB or 32 GB, but is twice as expandable than the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, up to 64 GB. The tablet is powered by a non-removable 4600 mAh Li-ion battery. The Note 8.0 comes with the S-Pen stylus pen, as other devices in the Galaxy Note series flagship.
Benchmark tests using Quadrant Standard on both devices resulted in the Galaxy Note 8.0 landing a score of 6995, while the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus scored half that with 3357. Compared to the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Note 8.0 uses the same Exynos 4412 chipset, but the Note 8.0 has double the cores and clocks .4 GHz more than the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
