With the release date of Samsung Galaxy Note 6 just months away, the internet is buzzing away with rumors and unofficial leaks regarding Samsung’s latest launch.


According to GottaBe Mobile, there was bound to be some speculation regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 6 since its previous version, the Galaxy Note 5 was reportedly one of the best smartphones to come out in 2015. However the vast amount of rumors that has surrounded the release of Galaxy Note 6 was unprecedented. Samsung always had a tendency to spring sweet surprises on tech enthusiasts, by releasing their latest smartphones months prior to their set release dates. Hence, users are anticipating a similar occurrence to grace the release of Galaxy Note 6, much like its big brother, the Samsung S7, which came out a month earlier than promised. A tech analyst is even of the opinion that Samsung Galaxy Note 6 might be coming out as early as July this year, beating Apple to the punch.

There can be a lot of specifics that can be predicted using the Samsung S7 as an obvious guideline and comparison, reports Forbes. Here are some of the top rumors/leaks that are being circulated on the internet at present:

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 823, as opposed to Snapdragon 820 in S7, the former rumored to be 18% faster than the latter.
  • It will have IP67 water resistance, which is admittedly slightly lower than S7’s IP68 water resistance, but logical too since the Note will be carrying a signature pen.
  • The 256GB UFS 2.0 smartphone storage, the upgrade that Samsung has been talking about for some time now, will probably debut in Samsung Galaxy Note 6.
  • MicroSD expandable memory slot, just like S7
  • An additional feature of infrared autofocus to the main camera, which is missing from S7.
  • A much sleeker design with a lesser camera bulge.
  • A whole new stylus design might be what Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could be looking at. The stylus might be placed on the outer edge, making way for greater battery space.
  • May include an Iris Eye Scanner technology instead of a fingerprint scanner.
