Samsung is doing great in the current smartphone market thanks to its newest jewels in the shape of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
It is expected that this success will soon be continued with the release of Samsung Galaxy Note 6 and apparently, the upcoming Note series flagship will be a major upgrade from last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
Speaking of the Note 5, this device introduced a feature known as off screen memo. According to the latest reports, the upcoming Note 6 will pick this feature from where the Note 5 left, allowing users to expand the notes they’ve written on the screen through scrolling down, thus creating more room to record more notes. In addition, there are reports that the S Note will be compatible with fingerprint secure lock as well as add the ability to import notes from other OneNote, Evernote, and other apps.
Other sources have been rife with the fact that Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will come with a larger 5.8-inch display screen, but keep the same QHD resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. While it is expected that Samsung will keep faith with the Snapdragon 820 SoC, some rumors are pointing towards a Snapdragon 823 SoC and a massive RAM of 6GB; 2GB more than the current Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7 family.
If this is indeed true, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro as some sources claim) will be, or already is, in huge trouble. The iPhone phablet is set to be unveiled in September, more than a month after Samsung Galaxy Note 6 has been availed. Apparently, the Note 6 is set for an August 15 release date in the U.S., which probably means the phone will be announced earlier the same month or even in late July.
If Mac Rumors is to be believed, the iPhone 7 Plus will be a simple incremental upgrade from the 6S Plus. The design will largely remain the same although there are claims that the 3.5mm headphone jack will be no more and antenna bands will be moved to the top and bottom edges. As for the camera, reports are rife that Apple will ship the Plus or Pro version with a dual-lens setup as well as a Smart Connector interface, a feature that was recently introduced on the iPad Pro.
Apple will reportedly include more RAM in the upcoming device as well as step up the processor and come in with an A10 chipset. However, with none of these coming from Apple directly, it is recommended that you take everything with a grain of salt.
Based on the above rumors, which phone between Samsung Galaxy Note 6 and iPhone 7 Plus (Pro) would you rather have? You can share your thoughts in the comments section.
