Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet has been making headlines recently and will make its debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).

According to a report from iNews24, Samsung Mobile's chief JK Shin has confirmed that Samsung's new tablet will make its debut in Barcelona next month, at the highly-anticipated MWC event.

iNews24 was also the first to report on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. As that rumor proved to be true, the Galaxy Note 8 news may be legitimate as well. According to iNews24, Shin did not disclose any specs for the company's new Galaxy 8 tablet.

At the recently concluded International CES tech fest, Samsung had plenty of goodies to show off, but focused on HDTVs, notebooks, a prototype foldable display, and a new Exynos chip, rather than tablets.

Samsung seems to have made a habit of reserving its big mobile news for international events. For instance, the company unveiled its Galaxy Note 2 at IFA in Berlin back in September, and launched its Galaxy S3 smartphone at a London event in May.

Samsung did not make huge waves at last year's MWC, but this year things may be different. Last year, the company abandoned plans for a press conference and admitted to "not doing very well" on tablets, but if the Galaxy Note 8 rumor proves to be true, this year's MWC is about to get more exciting.

The company's Galaxy Note brand has grown more powerful and popular lately, especially since the Galaxy Note 2 phablet topped 5 million sales back in November. Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has also made quite an impression, and now the company seems to be aiming to take on the 7.9-inch iPad with its new Galaxy Note 8.

The rumor mill has been busy churning about Samsung Galaxy devices, including a purported Galaxy S4 smartphone, but Samsung did not make any official announcements so far. The new report from iNews24 is the closest thing to an official confirmation, and with the MWC just around the corner, we may soon get to see Galaxy Note 8.
