Samsung Galaxy Note 6: Specs and Release Date

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Having made the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge official, Samsung is now working on unveiling the latest Galaxy Note 6 as a successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 5.

Last year, the Note 5 was released a few months after unveiling the Galaxy S6 series, something that is expected to be retained this year. When it is unveiled, Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is expected to home great features internally, but with very little differences on the outside when compared to the previous Galaxy Note model.

Just like this year’s Samsung Galaxy S7 has come in with quite a lot under the hood, fans of the Note series can also expect the South Korean giant to come in with the same variations under the hood for the Note 6.

An improved version of Galaxy Note 5

In essence, Samsung will want to keep up with its trend of improving the offerings available on its devices with each new release. If you loved the Galaxy Note 5, then it means you’ll even love the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 even more. If you had some reasons not to love last year’s phablet, Samsung has some for you to love this year’s version.

Samsung will ship the Note 6 with two different chipsets like it did with the flagship Galaxy S7. U.S. variants will carry a quad-core Snapdragon 820 CPU while those shipping to other regions will be powered by an Exynos 8890 CPU.

There are reports that Samsung will equip the upcoming phablet with a massive RAM of 6GB, something that will make this device one of the first smartphones to feature such huge RAM following the unveiling of the Vivo Xplay 5, which houses the amount of RAM. When combined with the latest flagship CPU from Qualcomm, this phone is expected to produce much better performance as compared to the Note 5, which is still a more than capable device.

Samsung returned the microSD card slot as well as water and dust resistance features for the Galaxy S7 family. This is also coming back to the Note series, starting with the Galaxy Note 6. This means that users will be able to expand the 32GB of onboard storage using a microSD card of up to 200GB.

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a screen size of 5.7 inches. While there are reports that Samsung might drop this to 5.5-inches, this should be taken with a grain of salt given that Samsung is trying to differentiate its offerings. Last year saw the release of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, both with the same 5.1-inch display sizes, and another Galaxy S6 Edge+ that came in with 5.5-inches. This year, Samsung has unveiled two Galaxy S7 models – a 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge. In this regard, we might see a Galaxy Note 6 with the same 5.7-inch screen size and a 2K QHD resolution. Unlike last year’s model, expect the Note 6 to come with Always On display.

With the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge having received heavy battery capacity boosts, the same will also be coming to the Galaxy Note 6. Reports are that Samsung is building a 4000mAh battery unit for the Note 6, which is expected to be unveiled in August this year.
