It looks like the HP Envy 8 Note (5000) that we talked about in the previous week has more than meets the eye – but before we proceed any further, here is a little refresher on the particular device. The HP Envy 8 Note happens to be an 8” tablet (as you can more or less deduce by the naming convention alone), where it carries the model number I508FC/K6F61EA and will boast of 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with MIMO alongside 4G LTE connectivity. More details have been spotted on the HP Switzerland website, although that page has been pulled since, but thankfully it has been cached.
So far, we do know that the Envy 8 Note has been described to be “a game changer”, although how much of the tablet’s landscape game will be changed remain to be seen. Apart from that, it is said to arrive with a full-sized keyboard and stylus, which should make the iPad Pro quake in its boots if you are an Apple fan who is fatalistic. Not only that, HP DataPass will be part of the deal, where it offers 200MB of free data each month for a good two years.
As for the remaining key hardware specifications, they include a quad-core Intel Atom (Cherry Trail) x5-Z8300 processor, a microSD memory card slot just in case the 64GB of internal memory is not enough, a 5MP shooter at the back, a microSIM slot, a microUSB 2.0 port, sensors such as an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor.
