Samsung is kicking off 2016 right with their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships, both gathering tons of great attention. However this is Samsung we’re talking about, so there’s always something new right around the corner. Today new reports are coming out to claim that the company is planning to launch the Galaxy Note 6 toward the end of this year with a few welcome changes.
Today’s leak claims that the Galaxy Note 6 will pack a 5.8-inch “Slim RBG” display with a QHD resolution. There are both models with and without the “Edge” screen in testing. This would mark the first time in 3 generations that Samsung will increase the display size after including the same size on the Note 3, Note 4, and Note 5. The report also claims that Samsung will ditch the S6 Edge+ successor this time around, likely due to the larger size of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The most interesting part of this leak however is the battery, weighing in at a massive 4,000 mAh. This would add 1,000 mAh from last year’s Note 5 which already had very good battery life. Needless to say, this phone would last quite a while on that power pack.
Other Note 6 rumors point to Exynos 8890/Snapdragon 823 variants with both packing 6GB of RAM and 32GB of storage with Android N at launch. Of course we are at least 2-3 months out from Samsung’s official Note 6 launch, so things could change or turn out to be completely false in that time. However if these rumors do turn out to be true, I don’t think anyone will complain about it.
