Samsung released its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge this February and you must have heard that the flagships came with IP68 certification. This certification states that the smartphone is dust and water resistant while being capable of withstanding water pressure upto 1.5m depth for 30 minutes. Well guy, rumors suggest that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be unveiled with a similar feature.
Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is showing up in news every now and then, to give you a quick roundup, a reliable Chinese source, Weibo, claims that the next Galaxy Note 6 will feature a stunning 5.8″ Slim RGB AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 resolutions. Allegedly, this display will be packed with 1024 pressure points. The ‘RGB’ might be pointing towards a new technology developed by Samsung for Note 6’s AMOLED display. The leakster further claimed that the smartphone will feature 6 GB of RAM, a 12 MP rear camera and 64/128 GB of storage.
The 6 GB RAM sounds like an exagerated claim, doesn’t it? Well, this should be kept in mind that last year Samsung successfully released S6 with 3GB RAM and Note 5 with 4GB RAM. So this shouldn’t come as a surprise if Samsung makes a breakthrough by introducing 6GB RAM in its upcoming Note smartphone. This rumor is further supported by the announcement by Samsung which outlined the fact that it is the first company ever to start mass production of 12GB LPDDR4 RAM chips with the help of a 20nm process technology. Samsung itself mentioned in their press release that this breakthrough will allow them to manufacture smartphones with an amazing 6GB of RAM. Therefore it is safe to say that the rumor by Weibo is based on solid grounds.
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.
