India’s import and export listing site – Zauba – has been proving to be very resourceful in the recent past when it comes to smartphone leaks.
A lot has been coming from this site’s data and most of the information fished from here has already materialized, including the recently announced Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy J7 (2016) and Galaxy C5, among other devices.
Now, a new leak has surfaced from this site and it involves the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Apparently, a new model number SM-N935G has shown up on Zauba, prompting speculations that the South Korean company might be working on releasing a curved dual-edge variant of the Note 6 dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Edge.
This is not the first time news of a new Galaxy Note 6 are coming up. Stories about this phablet have been here since February, with the then reports indicating that the phone will indeed be a major upgrade when compared to the current Galaxy Note 5. This seems to be the case, especially when you look at the huge hardware improvements the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have brought with respect to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Specs such as a 5.8-inch Slim RGB screen, a 6GB RAM, an Iris scanner and a 12MP Super OIS Plus rear camera have been easy to come by as far as the rumored Note 6 is concerned. It has even emerged that Samsung might come in with a Galaxy Note 7 instead of a Note 6 in order to match the numbering with the flagship Galaxy S7.
Later on, another leak surfaced with details of the supposed model number of Samsung Galaxy Note 6, which was SM-N930. Other reports came in pointing towards Samsung testing two screens for the upcoming phone – a flat panel and a dual-edge panel – but maintained that only one model will be released. However, as it seems, Samsung will be taking a leaf from its 2014 playbook that saw it release Galaxy Note 4 alongside the Galaxy Note Edge thanks to the new leak that carries model number SM-N935G. This is very close to the naming convention used for the Note 6 (SM-N930).
Of course, it is too early to come to conclusions that this is indeed a Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Edge, however, given that the company is less likely to follow up the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with a new Galaxy S7 Edge+, it is possible that we may have a curved dual-edge variant of the Galaxy Note 6 or Note 7 – whatever the name will be.
