It’s the usual order of things for Samsung. First comes the Galaxy S flagship, then comes the Galaxy Note entry. With the South Korean tech giant’s Galaxy Note 6 well under way this year, the majority of the populace are already at the edge of their seats in anticipation. However, let’s not forget that the company has been in the business of making phablets with edged displays. As such, we can also expect Samsung to unleash the Galaxy Note 6 Edge should the company follow its pattern.
According to new rumours that have been circulating around the mill, Samsung is already testing prototypes for its upcoming phablet flagship. However, the company has reportedly created two different versions of the Galaxy Note 6, but will ultimately decide only one to be released.
The report also notes that the Note 6 prototypes feature a double curved screen, similar to the Galaxy S7 edge as well as the Edge smartphones that have been released before it. Furthermore, the second prototype features a flat display panel, but its hardware sheet remains the same.
As far as the specifications go, the Galaxy Note 6 will come with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution. Samsung will reportedly go with either its newly homegrown Exynos 8 Octa or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset under its hood. It will also be paired with 6GB of RAM plus a beefy 4,000 mAh battery. For its photography prowess, it will feature the same 12MP dual pixel shooter that has been seen in the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. Its internal storage may also start at 32GB, which can also be expanded via microSD card slot.
As far as the release date is concerned, Samsung could plan on releasing the Galaxy Note 6 Edge after Google officially takes the wraps off its Android N. However, while the reports may come from reliable sources, it’s important to note that nothing is official as of yet and Samsung could make changes.
