If you are one of the many people who think of Samsung Galaxy S7 as the ultimate smartphone flagship from the South Korean company, wait until you see Samsung Galaxy Note 6 make an official appearance in the U.S. during the week of August 15.
The magnificence you see in the Galaxy S7 series will be magnified with the release of Samsung Galaxy Note 6. The device will feature an even larger screen than the Galaxy S7 Edge and last year’s Note 5, according to the latest rumors. Furthermore, reports are solid that Samsung will ship the upcoming device with the latest hardware specs under the hood, including a Snapdragon 820 (or 823) SoC, a RAM of 6GB and even larger battery of about 4000mAh.
This spec sheet, when compared to what the Galaxy S7 has to offer, makes Samsung Galaxy Note 6 more than deserving to be crowned the company’s premium end phone. Samsung first released the Note series in 2011 and since then, each has seen a new version come out, with the exception of 2014 where two variants of the Note series were unveiled – a Galaxy Note 4 and a Galaxy Note Edge.
The main appeal of this device, other than the top-of-the-table spec sheet it comes with, has always been the S Pen stylus it pockets. While the Galaxy Note 5 added some amazing functionality to this accessory, it is rumored that Galaxy Note 6 will take this to the next level. One thing that seems to be a major target of improvements for the Korean company is the S Note app. This app encourages users to pull out the stylus and take quick notes or even doodle and as it seems, Samsung will bump it up in the upcoming Note 6.
At the moment, it cannot be determined whether the S Note functionality will come preinstalled in the device or whether it will come separately requiring users to download the update from the Play Store or as an OTA. The new update will also see the new screen off memo feature that was introduced with Note 5 get some improvements that will allow owners of the Note 6 to scroll further and add more content to the S Note app.
The S Note app will also integrate the ability to secure it with a fingerprint to ensure that no one else apart from you is able to access the stored notes. The new Galaxy Note 6 will also allow users to import notes from other note-taking apps and in case you delete any notes, the S Note app will also come with a recycle bin where you can get back your deleted notes.
Another thing to note about the S Note app is that it will now be available via the Google Play Store and as such, you don’t need to have a Samsung device in order to install it. In other words, it is here to compete with the likes of Evernote and OneNote. However, using it on other non-Galaxy Note devices will mean you don’t get the full capabilities of the S Pen stylus. On the downside, the S Note app is only available for Android 6.0 Marshmallow devices.
