Following rumors that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 6 smartphone will come with a reversible USB Type C port for charging and data transfer, a new rumor originated from China’s Weibo said the upcoming phablet will feature a whopping 4,200 mAh battery cell to keep the lights on. This battery unit will reportedly be able to provide up to roughly 48-hours of battery life.
To top it off, the Galaxy Note 6 will apparently come equipped with a maximum of 256 GB of built-in storage space. IP 68 certification for dust and water resistance has also been tipped.
Meanwhile, Gizmo China said that Samsung will be releasing two variants of the Note 6. One of them will have curved-edge-display, while the other model will settle for a flat screen.
Other rumored Galaxy Note 6 specifications include a 5.8-inch display, packed with the usual 1,440 x 2,560 pixels QHD screen resolution. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 823 SoC will reportedly power the handset. It is worth noting that Snapdragon 823 is nothing but an enhanced version of the widely used Snapdragon 820.
The same site also suggested that some units of the Note 6 will come powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 chipset. Going by the history, this particular variant will most probably be headed to Asia.
Furthermore, the under the hood components will apparently be backed by a solid 6 GB of RAM. Among the high-end handsets released thus far, 4 GB of RAM has been the norm, but this configuration might become a standard in 2017.
Speaking of release date, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be unveiled sometime in August 2016.
