Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is the current talk of the town probably months before it is announced. Samsung is expected to announce the Note 6 in the near future, but there is no specific date as to when this will happen.
But given the previous dates that the Galaxy Note series has been launched, and especially taking into consideration the most recent one – Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – it is possible that Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be here in August or before, probably in July. To make matters even sweeter, there are reports that for the first time the Galaxy Note series might come in with three variants.
Back in 2014, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was added to the Galaxy Note 4, however, last year saw Samsung introduce the Edge panel to the Galaxy S series rather than come in with a second variant of the Note 5. Rumors have revealed that Samsung is testing several screen panels, a flat one, and a curved one, both for the upcoming Galaxy Note 6. Furthermore, there are other reports suggesting that a new Lite version of the Note 6 might also make its way to the market. In short, what these rumors seem to be pointing at is three variants for this year’s Note 6.
If this materializes, we will probably see a Samsung Galaxy Note 6, a trimmed-down Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Lite and a Galaxy Note Edge. While there are no details whatsoever regarding the possible specs and pricing of these two, speculations claim that the Note 6 might not be less than $900 for the base model, hence the need for a Lite version.
As for the standard Samsung Galaxy Note 6, expect the Korean company to stick with the awesome features that have seen Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge help it gain the top spot in the smartphone market in the U.S. following the end of Q1 2016. In addition, the phablet will come with more RAM than the flagships, probably the rumored 6GB and if all goes well, it will be powered by the yet-to-be-released Android N. There is even more to this device as rumors claim that an iris scanner will be on board, which betters the security offered by the fingerprint scanner.
While Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Lite will feature a Full HD screen with probably 1080p resolution, the standard Note 6 will include a QHD screen with 2K resolution. Furthermore, the performance specs of the Lite version will be reduced, with the processor probably being the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 used in the S7 and S7 Edge, rather than the rumored Snapdragon 823. In addition, it will keep the same 4GB RAM as the flagship S7 series.
As for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the company will probably be making up for the dropped idea of refreshing Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. This should mean the Note Edge will probably come with the same performance specs, but add the dual edge display.
