Just days ago we heard that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will come standard with IP68 certification. This certification states that the smartphone is dust and water resistant while being capable of withstanding water pressure up to 1.5m depth for 30 minutes. Today, new reports claim that the flagship phablet will be featured with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset and an amazing 8GB of RAM.
For those who haven’t heard of the aforementioned chipset, the Snapdragon 823 is rumored to be an enhanced version of the Snapdragon 820 which was featured in the recently released flagship smartphones – HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5. On the other hand, it should be noted that we had consistently heard rumors of a 6 GB RAM in the upcoming Note 6.
The above mentioned report was outed by the well known Chinese leakster – Weibo. The source further claimed that the all new Snapdragon 823 SoC will also be featured in the LG G Flex 3 which is expected to be released in the near future.
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.
