It is believed that Samsung scheduled the release of the new Galaxy Note 6 a bit earlier than initially planned to get on the shelves before the iPhone 7 comes out in September. The rumors say that the release date will be sometime in July this year, but until then, leaks of the new phablet showed up on the internet.
The latest leaks state that the Note 6 will have a bigger AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM and faster updates.
TechnoBuffalo noted that the size of the phablet will most likely be 5.77 inches, which is a bit bigger than its predecessor which sported a 5.7 inch display. The screen resolution will not be bad either at 2560 x 1440. It will run on the same Exynos 8890 chip as the Galaxy S7, which means that it’s very possible that variants of the Note 6 will be able to use the SD 820, like the S7 does.
But, based on a few recent reports, fans believe that the Note 6 will be even better than that, having 8GB RAM and could use the Snapdragon 823 which will be released at about the same time as the new Note. But keep in mind that these reports haven’t been confirmed by Samsung yet, so it could be just a rumor.
What is certain though is that the new device will be faster and will have more frequent firmware updates, regardless of the version of Android it will use.
On the market, the Note 6 will keep the Grace device codename and will have the serial SM-N930, a way to allow it to get faster firmware updates.
Also, when it will be released, most probably in July 2016, it’s rumored that it will also have the Android N out of the box.
