Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 N5100 was announced a couple of months back in February after being first leaked from multiple sources — and is expected to be launched in various regions in Q2 2013. Its an 8-inch Android tablet by Samsung running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Galaxy Note 8.0 is an answer by Samsung to Apple for their iPad Mini and is powered with a quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 processor and Mali-400MP GPU. Most of you would already be planning to get this tablet — and for those who have it, would have tried connecting it with Samsung KIES for software updates or data transfer. For those who are not able to connect, we have the Samsung USB drivers for Galaxy Note 8.0.

Galaxy Note 8.0 USB drivers are the same as the other Samsung Android devices. These new phones do not support mass storage anymore, but it does support MTP which allows you to add or remove files from your 16GB or 32GB of tablet storage. MTP drivers are always included with the stock Android tablet software. ADB drivers and Fastboot drivers will need to be downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers. Samsung-Galaxy-Note-8.0
