Samsung Galaxy Note 6 specs, release date: Curved display variant rumored to be in testing stage


Samsung is reportedly in the process of testing the new and upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 phablet flagship, and it comes in two beta variants, one of which has a curved edge display. However, only one of the purported devices might be able to see the light of day as the other might get discarded entirely.

According to a new report coming from The Netherlands as reported by GSM Arena, it was tipped that Samsung is gearing up for an upcoming release of the long rumored and much awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 6 sometime around August or even earlier. Likewise, the South Korean tech giant is said to already be testing beta models of the device and finalizing designs that will make the phablet line ready for launch.

One point tipped was that the tech company is currently working on two options for the physical design of the Galaxy Note 6. According to the rumors, one build of the Galaxy Note 6 has the standard flat design for the display, while the other one has the curved edge display technology. However, Samsung is said to be releasing only one design for the phablet flagship.

Aside from the display design differences, the two alleged device variants under testing sport identical hardware specifications.

Based on what was rumored in the past, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 phablet is expected to have a 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, and will run under the rumored new chipset from QUALCOMM, the new Snapdragon 823 chipset. A second variantwhich will be region-basedwill run under the Exynos Octa 8890 chipset.

It is expected to sport 6GB or RAM with 32GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card. The Note 6 is expected to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery.
