Samsung Galaxy Note 6 has already been treated with multiple leaks, however that didn’t stop a new one for surfacing today. As you already know, we are expected the phablet to be unveiled somewhere between July and August, thus it is natural that Samsung would be testing various prototypes nowadays. Reports just came in which claim that the Korean company is testing not one, but two different screen types for the Galaxy Note 6, namely flat and curved. The reliable source also mentioned that only one of them will make it to the final launch.
Apparently, the Galaxy S6 edge+ won’t be treated with a successor, instead the Galaxy Note 6 might be taking its place. Note that we are talking about curves at both sides of the screen, similar to the ones found on the recently released Galaxy S7 edge. Moreover, apart from the screen, both prototypes have identical specifications.
You might remember, one of Samsung’s own employee leaked a screenshot taken from the upcoming flagship phablet, Galaxy Note 6, while it was running CPU-Z. This screenshot revealed quite a bit of information which is completely in line with the rumors we have been hearing along the way. Apparently, the all new Note 6 will have a model number SM-N930 and it’ll sport a 5.8-inch 1440 x 2560 QHD Super AMOLED display. In addition to that, the listing confirmed the 6GB RAM, 32 GB ROM and Samsung’s very own Exynos 8890 SoC residing under the hood. In addition to that, a 4000 mAh battery will power the device which will also 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.
Based on various reports, 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.
