Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were made official on March 11, which is less than a month ago.
As it turns out, these two smartphones have gained so much liking in the smartphone world as opposed to their counterparts from last year – Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. With this success, many enthusiasts of the larger Samsung Galaxy Note 6 are getting excited as they ponder on what to expect from the phablet.
Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be released towards or at the end of this summer. There are some reports pointing to a mid-July release while others are stuck with August, just like last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Since the Note 6 is expected to be an upgrade over the Note 5, word on the street has it that the device will pack a 5.8-inch slim RGB display with AMOLED QHD resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. This is the same screen resolution used on the flagships Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The Always On display feature is also expected to be onboard the Galaxy Note 6.
Samsung dropped the 5.1-inch size screen used in last year’s S6 Edge and instead increased it to 5.5-inches in the S7 Edge. With this in mind, there are some speculations that Samsung Galaxy Note 6 might feature a 6-inch screen. The company also filed a patent in the recent past, something that has prompted speculations that the phablet might feature a dock that turns it into a notebook as well as 4K display. But this is just rumors as Samsung hasn’t said a thing about the phone.
Samsung will also stick to using two different chipsets with the one heading to the U.S. carrying a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and the other model will carry the company’s own Exynos 8890. On the side of RAM, reports have it that it will feature an improvement from last year’s 4GB for the Note 5 and instead pack 6GB of RAM. This, if it materializes, will be an incredible step for Samsung as far as smartphones are concerned.
With Samsung having improved what was an already fantastic camera on the Galaxy S6, expect to see the same coming to Samsung Galaxy Note 6 with respect to the Note 5. There are also reports that the device might come in variants of 64GB/128GB, but of course, this has not been confirmed. A microSD card slot is expected on board, just like it reappeared on the S7 and S7 Edge.
The South Korean tech company installed a 3600mAh battery unit in the Galaxy S7 Edge. With the Note 6 expected to feature a larger display than the Edge, Samsung is rumored to be working on a 4000mAh capacity battery to power the device.
There is no doubt that the Galaxy Note 5 was an amazing device (although it lacked a microSD card). The phone has an eye-catching design, top-notch specs, improved stylus, an excellent camera as well as amazing battery life. Expect each of these aspects to be upgraded when the new Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is released later in the year.
