Samsung's head of mobile JK Shin has confirmed that the rumoured Galaxy Note 8 will make its first official appearance at MWC 2013.

Jong-Kyun Shin, the president of Samsung's mobile business, told reporters attending a dinner in Seoul, Korea, that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be fully revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, at the end of February. It'll be an 8-inch tablet, very close in size to the iPad mini (which sports a 7.9-inch screen) as opposed to the 7-inch size of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

The news comes from a spec sheet which made its way on to the internet. It promised an 8-inch Super Clear LCD screen, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP camera and a 4,600mAh battery.

The smaller version of its Galaxy Note 10.1 will definitely halp Samsung compete in the mid-size tablet market currently dominated by the iPad mini, Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. Samsung clearly needs something a bit beefier than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to compete.

Currently Samsung's Note products include the 10.1-inch Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet and 5.6-inch Galaxy Note II smartphone. Samsung just updated the Note 10.1 to Jelly Bean, though it missed its own deadline to do so before the end of 2012. The Note II already runs Jelly Bean, and the original Note was promised an as-yet-unreleased update to Jelly Bean as well.
