Galaxy Note 6 Rumored to Feature 5.8in Display, 6GB RAM, and 12MP Camera
The rumor mill has started buzzing about the Galaxy Note 6 before even the flagship Galaxy S7 goes official.
Following the last week’s report claiming that the Galaxy Note 6 would mark the return of Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup to Europe, some more information on the device has now emerged online. According to a post on Chinese microblogging forum Weibo, the Note 6 will feature a 5.8-inch Slim RGB AMOLED display with 1024 pressure points, and a whopping 6GB of RAM.
Which means, if the report comes out to be true, the upcoming Galaxy Note phablet will not only see an increase in screen size from 5.7 to 5.8 inches, but would also mark a shift from a Diamond Pixel matrix to an RGB matrix.
As for the increase in RAM, Samsung moved to 4GB of RAM only recently with the Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ last year, and it doesn’t seem very likely the company will be switching to 6GB in just a year. But if it does, it would certainly make for a great selling point, though 6GB of RAM could simply be an overkill.
Despite the bigger display and increased RAM however, Samsung will integrate a 12-megapixel sensor into the Note 6, a step down from the 16 MP sensor on the Note 5, claims the Weibo post. It further goes on to say that the device will come in two SoC variants: one with the Exynos 8890 and the other having Snapdragon 820 inside.
None of the above information is back by any concrete evidence, so you should better take it with a grain of salt. The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to be launched in the second half of the year; meanwhile, we’ll keep you updated with the latest as it happens!
