A few days ago, Samsung has attended a Mobile Solutions Form event that took place in Shenzhen, China, where it unveiled a 6GB RAM chip that was built using a 10nm process. Speculations already started to spread on the internet, suggesting that this will be the chip that will power the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 phablet that will be released in August.
You wouldn’t believe how fast technology has advanced in the past years. In 2013, Apple has released the iPhone 5S, which was the first smartphone with a 64-bit processor, then, a year later, HTC was bringing the first Android device with a Qualcomm 64-bit processor. In the same year, Samsung was launching the first phone with a display curved on one side, then in 2015, it introduced a variant of the Galaxy S6 with a dual-edge screen.
So, what is Samsung preparing us for in 2016? Well, a 10nm chip with 6GB LPDDR4 has just been showcased and rumors say that it will be power the sixth generation Galaxy Note, which is expected to come with a much bigger battery of 4000mAh that will illuminate a 4K resolution screen.
The upcoming phablet could borrow some of the features of the Galaxy S7, such as dust and water resistance, as well as expandable internal memory, which means that the microSD will return and will allow users to increase the memory capacity up to 256GB.
On the outside, the Note 6 will be identical to the Galaxy S7 mid-tier flagship, featuring a glass rear panel and a metal frame. Sam Mobile has reported that currently, “Samsung is working on a new 1/1.7-inch CMOS camera sensor with an aperture as wide as ƒ/1.4,” but it’s not sure if the resolution will be increased up to 18MP or it will 12MP.
