Due to the amazing success of Samsung Galaxy S7, experts predict that the Galaxy Note 6 would be released earlier than planned. Earlier reports said that the release is slated to be anywhere between August and September 2016. However, if the Korean company wants to maintain momentum in sales, Note 6 should be released sooner. Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston expects “Samsung to release the Note 6 before the Apple iPhone 7” would be out on the market. Samsung should try and grab that window of opportunity, he added.
But what does the Korean company have to worry about – for now? The Galaxy S7 is selling like the proverbial hot cake, and it is said to be the best-selling Android smartphone in the world in 2016.
Still, Samsung might want to avoid going head-to-head with the iPhone 7 and will release Galaxy Note 6 sometime this summer.
What do people have to look forward to with the Samsung Galaxy Note 6?
- Android N software
- 5.8 inch Quad HD display
- 12 mp rear camera
- 64 GB / 128 GB storage space
- 6 GB RAM
Rumored or not, these specs are quite impressive.
Google’s Android N comes with features that didn’t make it to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It has a multi-window support that lets you open 2 apps simultaneously. Direct reply notifications let you answer an incoming message right from the notification screen. This means you won’t have to navigate away from the game you’re playing or the book you’re reading.
The 5.8-inch slim RGB AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that will be in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 6 is rumored to be brighter than similar screens in its class. It will be more energy efficient too.
The 12 mp rear-faxing camera is similar to what was embedded in the Galaxy S7. The main camera, on the other hand, is said to feature optical image stabilization.
Galaxy Note 6 is said to have either a 64 GB or 128 GB (UFS 2.0) of internal memory. It isn’t much compared to the 256 GB storage of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but you can still do a lot with that amount of real estate. There is no mention of a MicroSD card slot, however.
If it is true that the Galaxy Note 6 will be packed with 6 GB of RAM, it will be the first Samsung flagship with that much processing power.
The S Pen would still be part of the Galaxy Note 6, what with it being part of the Galaxy Note series.
You have to admit, these rumored specs would make any Samsung fan quite happy. If only the release date would be finalized and confirmed.
