Samsung had launched the Galaxy Note 5 in August 2015. It is yet to receive the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade and now rumors about its successor, the Galaxy Note 6, have already started. The rumor mill has revealed alleged specs of the Galaxy Note 6 phablet.
According to a leakster named HQ Vision on Weibo, the Galaxy Note 6 will have a 5.8-inch Slim RGB AMOLED screen. It will carry support for Quad HD resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. All the previous Galaxy Note series phablets feature 5.7-inch displays. The display of the Note 6 is said to brighter than that of Galaxy Note 5, Mobi Picker reported.
So far, there is no information available on the chipset that will be present under the hood of Galaxy Note 6. However, Phone Arena says that the Note 6 will have two SoC variants of Snapdragon and Exynos.
The rumored specs of the Galaxy Note 6 include 6 GB of RAM. If this proves to be true, it would become the first smartphone to arrive with 6 GB of RAM. Speculations suggest that the Galaxy Note 6 will be available in two storage flavors of 64 GB and 128 GB. Unlike the Galaxy Note 5, its successor will be featuring a microSD card slot.
For photography, the Galaxy Note 6 is expected to come with 12-megapixel camera coupled with Super OIS Plus setup that includes a 5-axis image stabilization system. It's the same OIS Plus setup that will be available on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones that are expected to launch on Feb. 21.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will feature an enhanced S-Pen stylus. Since the leaked photos of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge do not indicate overhaul design changes, the Galaxy Note 6 is expected to appear quite similar to the predecessor model.
The Apple iPhone 7 is expected to release in September this year. Like last year, Samsung is likely to avoid the release of Note 6 in September. Instead, the Galaxy Note 6 is likely to release in August.
