Samsung Galaxy Note 6 rumors: Earlier launch, may pack 6 GB of RAM


With Samsung’s latest flagships already out in the open, the rumor mill for its next flagship, its next-generation phablet known as the Galaxy Note 6, has already started running. According to the latest rumors, the phablet may possibly see an earlier launch in August and will be sporting a whopping 6 GB of RAM. A Digital Trends report cited that if Samsung is launching the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge in February, a late August or early September launch for the Note 6 may be feasible.

Aside from the rumored early launch date, another rumor is pointing to a more powerful and faster device with a whopping 6 GB of RAM to support its processor. The report comes via a Chinese blog, which claims that the device will have 6 GB of RAM. This report follows earlier news that Samsung has successfully manufactured devices that have 6 GB of RAM on a single chip.

The device’s screen size is also being rumored to get a slight boost, According to Digital Trends, the Note’s usual 5.7-inch Quad HD AMOLED screen may be bumped up to 5.8 inches, but with the same resolution.

An International Business Times report also cited several more features that the Galaxy Note 6 is rumored to have. When it comes to the device’s display, the report claims that it will have a “pressure-sensitive screen,” one that is similar to the 3D Touch feature on the iPhone. The device is also said to be equipped with a microSD slot that doubles as a SIM slot, a feature that is present in the Galaxy S7. Expandable memory will be available for up to 2 TB.

There is expected to be some improvement in the battery department with the Note 6 rumored to have a 3,500 to 4,000 mAh battery pack. In terms of accessories, according to a report in Ubergizmo, the Note 6 may be the first device to have a phablet dock, which Samsung reportedly has filed a patent on.
