With Samsung’s S7 slated to be announced in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event this week, avid gadget lovers have now shifted their focus to the equally appealing phablet version from the Korean-based company, the Samsung Galaxy Note6.
There are rumors that the Samsung Galaxy Note6 may keep the same all-metal design that it has introduced for its predecessor, especially since fans were happy about it. The device may also include the S-Pen stylus, as well as the popular security feature of fingerprint scanner.
The upcoming device may increase its screen size to 5.8 inches and an enhanced screen resolution to feature 4K display. As for its power, there are speculations that Samsung Galaxy Note 6 may change to Qualcomm, most likely the latest Snapdragon 820. Another speculated change in the upcoming device is the return of the microSD slots for external expansion, as fans were not pleased when Samsung removed the said leeway in Samsung Galaxy Note5.
In addition, there are rumors that Samsung Galaxy Note6 may increase its RAM to a whopping 6GB. The device may also offer a 128GB built-in storage version and possibly, a boost in its battery capacity, in order to keep up with the new amped up specifications that it is expected to bring. It will also be the first phablet that will feature Android Marshmallow out of the box.
Aside from these, the camera of the upcoming device is also expected to get some boost. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has joined hands with BRITECELL technology to address the quality of the photos taken in low-light environment. With this, the same feature is also speculated to come in Samsung Galaxy Note6 in the same 16-megapixel main camera.
As for its release date, the predictions point to a third quarter this year, most likely August, as Samsung Galaxy Note5 was also announced around the same time last year.
