Samsung released the Galaxy Note 5 phablet not long ago in August. Following this, a gold-platinum variant of the device was launched recently. But now, a new rumor talks about the configuration details, price and possible release date of the successor Samsung Galaxy Note 6.

According to Tech Times, the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 sounds more like a “gaming PC” than a powerful phablet. This device is rumored to come powered by a whopping 16-core processor. Plus, it will be backed by 8 GB of RAM, which is apparently the minimum requirement of a gaming PC.

To top it off, the smartphone is believed to flaunt a 4K display resolution, similar to the recently released Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. The display size is reported to be somewhere between 6.0-inch and 6.2-inch. To corroborate this further, Samsung’s JK Shin acknowledged that many such large screen smartphones will be released. Precisely because, it offers "better viewing experience" combined with improved "productivity on the go."

When it comes to camera configuration, the Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly sport an improved 30-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to a 16-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats. However, a reasonable 7-megapixel selfie-clicker has also been rumored, Tech Times reported.

The battery capacity of the device is believed to be 4,200 mAh unit. Plus, it will apparently pack the now-ubiquitous rapid- and wireless-charging features. The fast-charging mechanism is expected to offer 40 percent battery life within four minutes of charging the handset.

To top it off, the tech giant is reportedly mulling the idea of housing a retina or an iris scanner, in addition to the fingerprint scanner. Other Galaxy Note 6 features include dust- and shock-proof exterior, with internal storage options ranging from 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB to 256 GB. The release date and price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 are rumored to be Q3 2016 and $1,100, respectively.
