Samsung’s Next Galaxy Note Will Supposedly Be an 8-Inch Monster (Updated)

Samsung's mobile head JK Shin has supposedly confirmed that there's an 8-inch Galaxy Note coming next month at Mobile World Congress, a trade show in Barcelona. That means you're going to need to buy a pair of Jncos if you want to carry this rumored monstrous phablet in your pocket.

Besides the report that the next Note will be the size of Zack Morris's brick phone, the device is said to include a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a 1,280 x 800 pixel display. An 8-inch note might be big enough to double as a bludgeoning tool, but Samsung wouldn't be making these monsters if people weren't buying them. And the real question we should be asking is; will pockets be getting monstrous too, to keep with these bigger and bigger phones? [iNews24 via Engadget]

Update: This report is actually referring to just another sized Galaxy tablet, rather than a super duper large phone. You need a cheat sheet to keep track of all of Samsung's slates.
