The Galaxy Note 8.0 may soon see an official release in the U.S.

A 3G global version of the next-generation device from the South Korean tech company was passed through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) between March 8 and 12, according to Engadget. This may mean that Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy Note 8.0 sometime soon in North America.

The company revealed some of the details of the Galaxy Note 8.0 release at this year's Mobile World Congress. A statement from the company was reported by MyBroadband on March 13 saying that the new tablet is focused on assisting working professionals.

"This product is built for the business user, be it an individual looking for a great personal and business device or the CIO looking for the perfect productivity tool to implement within the business," the statement said.

The specs for the Galaxy Note 8.0 include an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 and a pixel density of 189ppi. It also will have a quad-core Exynos 1.6GHz A9 quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, Samsung's "S-Pen" stylus and run on Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2.

The new Galaxy tablet is expected to feature a variety of connectivity options reported by The Verge such as Bluetooth version 4.0, USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11.

The video and picture featured for the device, shown below, include dual cameras with a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video chat and a rear facing 5 megapixel camera.

It appears that Samsung is taking note of Apple as the 8-inch design is similar to the iPad Mini that measures in with a 7.9-inch display. The new Note 8.0 will stand out as the biggest of the Samsung Galaxy Tab family that features. Its smallest tablet at 7-inches does not come with the S Pen stylus.
