Samsung Galaxy Note 6 has been popping out of the rumor mill every now and then. We have already received reports that the upcoming phablet will come standard with IP68 certification which will make it dust and water resistant. In addition to that, multiple sources confirmed that the Note 6 will be featured with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset and an amazing 8GB of RAM. However, today we received another leak of of the flagship phablet which featured a list of its model numbers for various regions.
You might have heard that Samsung had released their flagship smartphone, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, with identical model numbers for almost all unlocked variants. To take the initiative further ahead, apparently, Samsung will now be using same model numbers for all the major US carrier variants. This revelation has been obtained from the aforementioned leaked model numbers of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6, aka Grace. The listing further reveals a dedicated European variant of the Note 6, thus confirmed the rumors we have hearing from quite some time now.
What good will the same model numbers bring? Well for starters, it’ll mean that the South Korean company can push out updates and upgrades considerably faster and to a larger audience simultaneously, instead of having its customers wait in que for their specific model numbers to get the updates. You might already have experienced the baffling software policy of Samsung, however recent events suggest that things have started to get better. For instance, the recent maintenance update for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge was officially rolled out to China, India, U.S and UK, all within a week.
As for the OS of the smartphone, the upcoming device will hopefully be powered by the latest Android N which is yet to be released. Android N, among numerous new goodies, features a Multi-window mode, all new settings menu, improved Doze Mode, and redesigned notification shade and quick settings panel. On the other hand, anonymous rumors suggest that the smartphone might be unveiled in June, however the traditional schedule might also be followed which puts the launch in late August or early September.
For further updates, stay tuned.
