New Delhi: Samsung may be testing as many as two variants of its next-generation Note device, expected to be called the Note 6. A new report doing the rounds suggests that Samsung is secretly working on two variants of the upcoming Galaxy Note 6: one with a regular flat screen and another with a curved screen much like in the case of its Edge-series devices. Both the variants are however said to sport the same 5.8-inch display.
According to the report, the Galaxy Note 6 will come with a QHD display with a 1440×2560 pixels resolution. Samsung will be using two different processors, as it does with its other flagship phones. These processors are said to be Samsung’s own Exynos 8 and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 823. Further, the Note 6 is said to come with 6 gigs of RAM contradicting earlier reports that said that the phone might have a whopping 8GB of RAM.
Storage wise, the Note 6 is expected to start at 32GB memory and an expandable storage slot is expected to make the cut, much like in the case of its new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The Note 6 is also said to run the developer preview of Android N. It is said that the phone will officially launch sometime after Google makes Android N live. This means the Note 6 could be one of the first devices in the market to ship with Android N out-of-the-box.
The Note 6 will reportedly employ a similar rear camera set-up as the Galaxy S7. This means it will in all probability come with a 12-megapixel camera on the rear.
Other tipped specifications of the Note 6 include a fingerprint scanner and a 4,000mAh battery.
Samsung will also most likely update its trademark S-pen stylus, much like it does with every new Note.
