Samsung is rumored to be working on a slightly low-powered version of Galaxy Note 6. Rumors indicate that it will be launched with Galaxy Note 6 Lite moniker.
The rumored Galaxy Note 6 Lite is said to arrive with a 5.8-inch screen that will support full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The regular edition of Galaxy Note 6 is expected to come with the same-sized display. However, it will support Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
The Snapdragon 820 chipset will reportedly power the Galaxy Note 6 Lite along with 4 GB of RAM. However, the high-end variant is rumored to be powered by the yet unannounced Snapdragon 823 SoC that is expected to deliver clocking speeds of up to 3.0 GHz, Slash Gear reported.
Currently, the Snapdragon 820 SoC is considered to be the most powerful Qualcomm chipset. Most 2016 flagship smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, LG G5 and Sony Xperia X Performance feature the SD 820 chipset.
Smartphone companies have been using the Snapdragon 652 chipset to power the low-end version of flagship devices. The HTC 10 Lifestyle and LG G5 SE are powered by Snapdragon 652 SoC. However, Samsung is rumored to power the low-end Note 6 Lite with SD 820 chip.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6’s Snapdragon 823 is rumored to arrive with 6 GB of RAM. However, the Lite edition of Note 6 is speculated to carry 4 GB of RAM. Speculations also suggest that the Galaxy Note 6 Lite will arrive with a cheaper price tag compared to the regular edition of Note 6.
Samsung is rumored to release two editions of Galaxy Note 6 this year. The high-end variant is rumored to feature dual-edge curved display. Like the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Note 6 will be flanked with IP68 certified glass panel chassis.
It is also rumored to be the first Samsung smartphone to feature USB Type-C port. The Samsung Gear VR available in the market features a microUSB. In order to support the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, the South Korean tech giant is rumored to launch a new edition of Gear VR headset with support for USB Type-C port, Sam Mobile reported.
