Rumors regarding Samsung’s Galaxy Note 6 have been building up on the internet for quite some time now. The last released smartphone from the house of Samsung was the Galaxy S7 and within a short time from its release, the flagship device has been able to find numerous takers.
Reports regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 suggest that the device will be both dust and water resistant. The waterproofing and dust resistant features were present in the Galaxy S7 too and Samsung has decided to incorporate the same into the upcoming Note 6.
The device will have a IP68 certificate in this regard to show off for its impressive dust and water resistant features. It will reportedly be able to survive under water at a depth of i.54 meters for a period of 30 minutes.
Apparently, the developers have imported several iris scanners from India. These iris cameras are likely to be utilized for the purpose of research and development. A number of experts are of the opinion that the iris scanners will ultimately find their way into the upcoming device.
Various reports are also stating that a scanning lock mechanism might also be used in the Note 6. The feature is quite high-end and extremely rare. Till date only a few devices running on Windows 10 comes loaded with this particular feature. Even the latest range of iPhones from the house of Apple also do not contain this feature.
If indeed Samsung uses this feature in the upcoming device, it will be the first smartphone of the Galaxy lineup to boast the scanning lock mechanism feature.
The device will sport a 5.8-inch Slim RGB AMOLED display which will have a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. With the Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm already available in the market, chances are quite high that it will be used in the Note 6.
However, there is also the possibility that Samsung might use an even advanced processor in the device, it such a processor is released before the launch of the Note 6.
It was also reported that the device might feature 4K resolutions. Rumors regarding the possibility of a pressure sensitive touch screen are also doing rounds on the internet.
If indeed it features a pressure sensitive touch screen, users will be able to get a similar experience like that of the 3D Touch feature that was used in the iPhone 6 lineup.
However, it should be noted that there has been no official backing behind these rumors as of yet.
Whatever may be the processor, it will be accompanied with a whopping 6GB of RAM and a dedicated GPU for the graphics department.
Several variants of the device based on its in-built memory will be available. Reports state that Samsung will launch a 64GB variant, a 128GB variant. Another variant that will be launched will come with a massive 256GB storage space.
It should be noted here that the storage space on the device will be expandable by the usage of an external microSD card in its microSD slot.
Just in the previous month Samsung came forward with the announcement regarding this new type of storage technology that will be used in their future smartphones. This type of storage has been termed embedded UFS storage.
It will make its first appearance in the upcoming Note 6. Samsung is currently producing the embedded UFS storage on a mass scale. It will reportedly be twice as fast compared to the existent storage technologies.
