A number of rumors regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 has been building up on the internet for quite some time now. The latest batch suggest that the device might be powered with an even more advanced processor than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.
Various reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will most likely run on the Snapdragon 823 chipset from Qualcomm. The maximum processing speed that the Snapdragon 820 is capable of churning out is 2.2Ghz.
However, if rumors are to be believed, the maximum processing speed of the Snapdragon 823 will be 3GHz. Moreover, any device that is powered by a Snapdragon 823 SOC will be capable of supporting upto 8GB of RAM.
However, according to reports, the processor of the Note 6 will be accompanied with 6GB of RAM. The LG Flex 3 is another smartphone that might come loaded with the Snapdragon 823.
Along with the powerful processor and 6GB of RAM, the inside of the device will feature an Adreno 530 GPU along with a Hexagonal Digital Signal Processor.
Samsung developed two variants of the Galaxy S7 based on the processor. While one variant contained the Snapdragon 820, the other packed Samsung’s own Exynos processor. The South Korean tech giant might decide to do the same with the Note 6 and if that is done, consumers can expect two visitants of the device to hit the market with two different processors.
It will most likely sport a 5.8-inch screen which will have a SlimRGB AMOLED display. The resolution of the display will be 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
It was previously reported that Samsung is importing iris scanners from India which will ultimately be used in the Note 6. A scanning lock mechanism which has never been used in an Android phone till date might find application in the upcoming device. This technology is only found in a handful of phones running on Windows 10.
As for the internal memory of the device, it will come in two variants with one featuring 64GB of internal storage space while the other featuring 128GB of it. Rumors regarding another variant of the device are also doing rounds on the internet.
This variant will reportedly contain a whopping 256GB of inbuilt memory. This memory will feature the UFS 2.0 technology which will enable it to read and write data at a much faster speed compared to normal memories.
The announcement for this technology was made by Samsung in the previous month. Samsung has just begun the mass production of this memory type and it looks like the Galaxy Note 6 will be first device to flaunt it.
The data reading speed of this memory will be around 850 MB/s, while its writing speed will be around 250 MB/s. Whatever inbuilt memory the device packs, it will be expandable up to 2TB by using an external microSD card in its microSD slot.
As for its camera, the Note 6 will likely be sporting a 12-megapixel rear snapper which will be equipped with the Super Optical Stabilization feature. This feature will enable users to take excellent photos even under dim-light conditions.
It will also come in handy for those people who have shaky hands. The image stabilization feature will help them to take perfect shots even if their hands are shaky.
iDigitalTimes reports that the rumors regarding the Galaxy Note 6 being powered by a Snapdragon 823 processor might not be true. The site further reports that Samsung might use the same processor in the Note 6 that has been used in the S7 lineup. In that case, the Note 6 will be packed with a Snapdragon 820 or an Exynos 8890 SOC.
