Just six months after the GALAXY Note 5 made its debut, the rumor mill is already making promises about this year’s Galaxy Note 6 — and they sound super exciting.
According to one tipster, this year’s upgrade will deliver a larger “Slim RGB” display, a whopping 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of speedy storage, and more.
The Galaxy Note 5 is currently the finest phablet money can buy. Its 5.7-inch Quad HD display, snappy Exynos 7420 processor, and 4GB of RAM make it one of the fastest smartphones on the market half a year later. It also looks good, and takes incredible pictures.
But Samsung wants to make the Galaxy Note 6 even better, starting with a larger 5.8-inch display (up from 5.7 inches with the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 4), according to a tipster on Chinese micro-blogging network Weibo.
It is expected to be a “Slim RGB” AMOLED display that would allow Samsung to make the new Note even thinner, without sacrificing the image quality it has become famous for. Like the Galaxy S7 (and the iPhone 6s), it will also be pressure-sensitive.
Samsung is also expected to pack in 6GB of the latest LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage, two different processors (likely Exynos and Snapdragon), and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization.
It’s hard to verify claims made on Weibo, of course, but most of this sounds like plausible upgrades for the Galaxy Note series, which has always been Samsung’s most powerful offering. But with six months left to wait for the Note 6, these plans could still change.
