The 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet we saw last week will be officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress, according to Korea's iNews24. The site reports that Samsung mobile head JK Shin says the 8-inch tablet will be coming at the show, which is held in late February, though he didn't reveal any other details. Previous leaks have indicated that the tablet will come in 3G and Wi-Fi models with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 1280 x 800 display, 5-megapixel back camera, and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Its form factor is similar to previous Galaxy Tab designs.

Samsung has been rumored to have a 1080p Galaxy S IV on the horizon, as well as an even larger successor to its Galaxy Note II phone, but neither of those are expected at MWC. Shin seems to be telling us to expect the 8-inch Note tablet to be Samsung's showpiece there, like the Galaxy Note 10.1 was at MWC in 2012.
