The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were only released a month ago, but the success of these phones has people clamoring for information about the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, which is scheduled to be released at the end of the summer.
Tech Times reports on what we may be able to expect from the Galaxy Note 6.
“The phablet may sport a 5.8-inch slim RGB AMOLED display with a QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Just like the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge, the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 may be available in two variants: one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and the other with an Exynos 8 chipset.”
The article adds that the Note 6 could come with 6GB of RAM, which is incredible for a smartphone. Tech Times also reports that Samsung is working on improving the already fantastic camera of the phablet as well.
Trusted Reviews says that the Galaxy Note 6 could actually have a 6-inch screen and a 4,000 mAh battery. There is also a rumor that the Note 6 could have its own phablet dock that turns the phablet into a small notebook. According to the article, the Note 6 could actually arrive in mid-July. Last year, the Note 5 arrived in late August and the year before, it arrived in early October.
Some of the commenters after the article are hoping for a 4K screen.
“4K display for the Gear VR tech will be essential and a vast improvement on the clarity over the current quad HD screens,” says Joe Bailey.
However, some think a 4K display could be overkill.
“I really don’t care about the 4k display on this device, I would rather have the resolution of note 5 with sharper display, and extra battery life. 4k would be overkill on such a phone,” says Realy Namey.
Samsung is hoping for a hit with the Galaxy Note 6 after the Note 5 failed to produce the same sales as previous Samsung Note devices. Still, the Note 5 arrived to excellent reviews. CNET gave the device four-and-a-half stars and praised the device for having an eye-catching design, high-end hardware, and the ability to take great outdoor photos. They loved the upgraded stylus and the terrific battery life. However, the review didn’t like the fact that the Note 5 doesn’t have a removable battery and that there are no external storage options.
Engadget also gave the Note 5 a great review.
“Samsung’s Galaxy Note series has never been for everyone, but the Note 5 just might change some minds. It’s the smallest, most comfortable version of the phablet to date, and thoughtful software tweaks make the S Pen feel way less gimmicky.”
The review adds that a great screen and top-notch performance make the device even better, but that some people will be upset by the lack of a microSD card slot and removable battery. Given that the microSD card slot returned to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, it’s likely that it will return to the Galaxy Note 6 as well.
Excitement for the Galaxy Note 6 is building on Twitter.
