Rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 have been doing the rounds of the market for quite a while now, inciting the loyalists and the skeptics alike. Judging by the success of its predecessors, the Note 6 should deliver a lot on Samsung’s promises, which incidentally makes the device one of the most-awaited this year.
Samsung is rumored to be working towards a release date in August 2016, as the Galaxy Note 5 completes one year in the market. However, others are of the opinion that the Note 6 will be showcased as early as mid-July 2016. These are unconfirmed reports and we neither support nor deny these claims.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is expected to feature a few upgrades over the Note 5 and the list includes:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 featured a 5.7-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels. Samsung could install a 5.8-inch RBG AMOLED screen on the Note 6,packing the same pixel density.
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is powered by a 2.1 GHz Octa-Core Exynos 7 processor with 4 GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note 6 is rumored to draw power from anupgraded variant from the Exynos range, even though confirmations are yet to arrive.
Samsung has the habit of launching a single device with multiple hardware specifications. The Galaxy S7 is available in two variants. While one draws power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, the other variant features the Exynos 8.
The same could be found on the Note 6, if the company deems fit. Experts also believe that the Note 6 is the first phablet from Samsung to feature a 6 GB RAM.
Samsung is known to increase the megapixel along with focusing on the sensor, every time an upgraded smartphone is launched, and this time around the plan remains the same. According to the initial reports, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 features a 12 MP primary camera along with a 5 MP secondary lens.
The current-generation Note 5 features a 16 MP primary camera. Hence, it is unlikely that Samsung will reduce the camera capabilities of an upgraded device. We will just have to wait and see for ourselves!
Apple’s Live Photos feature that they introduced in the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus, was a massive hit with the crowd, and Samsung might try out something similar on the Galaxy Note 6.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5features a retina and fingerprint scanner,and the Note 6 is rumored to feature the same.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is likely to sport Android N out of the box, although, this depends entirely on the availability of the OS. However, the phablet could also feature Android 6.0 Marshmallow, upgradable to Android N as and when it arrives.
Dust and Water Resistance:
Initial rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 features IPX68 certification,which means that the smartphone is waterproof till depths of 1.5 meters for a maximum of 30 minutes. The device is also dust proof. We might have to wait for a few more months to get the details, since the Note 6 is not expected until July-August 2016.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was available in 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 Gb of built-in storage, it came as a shock when Samsung did not offer an external SD Card slot. The Galaxy Note 6 is also available in three variants, but we hope that the company offers expandable storage this time.
