Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S7, might be the one to take over the world by storm and conquer Apple’s smartphone domination. However, the South Korean tech giant has another trick up its sleeve, which also happens to be its main highlight in recent years. Enter the Samsung Galaxy Note, the series that brings powerhouse specifications with each new generation.
Now that we are moving on to the next generation, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, Samsung may plan to take things global to save itself from the backlash that it suffered when it made the availability of its predecessor limited to Asia and North America.
The Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly follow the example of its predecessor. That example is only for the screen size, however, as Samsung will offer the handset with a more compact design by lowering its screen to body ratio so that it could be able to deploy an even sleeker device. You’ll also get a whopping 2560 x 1440 resolution. Water resistance is also on the sheets too, although the IP rating isn’t specified at the time of writing.
For its camera, the Galaxy Note 6 will come with the dual pixel technology to ensure that it can deliver improved snapshots even in low lighting conditions. It will also feature a 3,600 mAh battery that we’ve seen with the S7 Edge, giving its users longer screen time.
What’s more, it seems as if Samsung has returned to its senses and added microSD support for the Note 6. This would also mean that the company will support Android Marshmallow’s adaptable storage, which allows anyone to use a microSD card as if it’s the internal storage itself.
For its performance, recent reports suggest that Samsung will launch the Note 6 in two variants. There’s one that will feature the company’s Exynos 8890 chipset and another with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC.
Samsung could likely unveil the Galaxy Note 6 in August before IFA 2016 takes place in Berlin, which could allow the company to stay ahead of Apple when it launches the iPhone 7.
