Lightbulb Galaxy note pro 8.4 port to galaxy note 8?

Please I literally begging the deck or someone that is juiced and anxious to have all of the new note pro 8.4 features on our note 8's I know we all will love it and I'm willing to donate to get it started the only thing is I really don't know who to ask because I do not know any Dev's personally... So come on guys make this one a go we can all be fit from those new features instead of going to spend another $400 on the same tablet on steroids just saying.

As has been re iterated over and over in many posts in this forum, There is NO NOTE 8.4 PRO as of this writing.
it's likely the 8.4 tab pro you talking about.

I am so tired of people calling the new Tab a "Note". It is NOT a Note. It does NOT support S-Pen. It is just a Tab.

Your right but the features from that tab can definitely be ported though to work with our note 8's like magazine ux...

Yeah, it seems that the tab is all peeps know about. Big difference... as for apps, it seems that there will be some apps ported as time goes. It is a bit early, but I think we'll see some by July. Though I am sure they will require 4.3 at least.

Good idea for a Port !!!
Btw, don't forget Note 8 does support ONLY Android 4.2.2 !!!
Note 2 support 4.3 at least and Great Devs from "Electronics Team" was able to make a 4.4.2 Port from Note 3 to Note 2 !!!
One more thing is about porting a Tab features to a Note !!! Basically, this should be a bit tricky, If you own a Tab 3 8.0 maybe you will be lucky.
And finally HARDWARE COMPATIBILITY, Tab 8.4 hardware are different from Note 8 ones. The screen resolution is much more bigger than the Note 8 one (2560x1600 vs 1280x720 I think) So making a port will be REALLY HARD.
But, Just wait and see !!! Since the Tab 8.4 is still NOT available here (Morocco).
One thing is certain: Magazine UX can be ported (like Samsung TouchWizz 5 and 6) to many devices.

No, Not the same thing. and though to you it's just a pen, there's a whole lot going behind the scenes, as well as UI/UX considerations bound to it.

A Port if any will have to be from a Note Family Device, and unless those (firmware updates etc) are released by Samsung chances are bleak.
