Currently, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are being shipped all over the world with one of the two variants of chipsets: Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890. Last year, the Galaxy S6 Edge had the same screen size as the S6, but this year, Samsung has decided to no longer release a Galaxy S7 Edge+, and instead, the manufacturer has opted for a 5.5-inch screen for the S7 Edge. This means that the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 will be only 0.2-inch larger than the Galaxy S7 Edge. But if the rumors will prove to be true, then the next phablet will hit the stores earlier than expected, in mid-July. This information was revealed by the Korean website The Bell.
According to some Korean reports, the Galaxy Note 6 was code-named Grace and when it will be released, it will run on Android N, which makes us believe that Google will not wait until this fall to launch its new operating system, although the name hasn’t been set yet, but it will be chosen though an online poll, where the fans will vote for their favorite name.
Until last year, Samsung has presented its latest Galaxy Note handset in September, at the IFA trade show, and this suggest that the manufacturer will change the release pattern and will bring a new phablet when it will be ready, not caring if this will happen in August or July. Even the Galaxy S7 was released earlier than its predecessor and this happened because of the competition between Samsung and Apple, which is dominating the market with the line of iPhones. Samsung is struggling to keep up with its rival and that’s why it tries to bring devices earlier, so that the fans will not want to choose Apple’s upcoming smartphones.
And it’s possible for the Galaxy Note 6 to run on the Android N, because Google already specified that its OEMs will gain access to the new operating system by this summer. As for the specs of this device, we can expect a 4K display that will be pressure-sensitive with 1,024 pressure points, a 4000mAh battery, the same processor from the Galaxy S7 or an upgraded one, a 12MP main camera with Super OIS etc.
