It’s not clear yet what Samsung will release but most are convinced that it will likely be a Galaxy Note 6 or Galaxy Note 7. On top of this, new details suggest that Samsung may not be keen in including the Android N although the device promises to be a killer on its own.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Samsung hit a mobile slump sometime ago after its product lineup failed to deliver the sales. The market had a lackluster response to a number of its flagships, but the company seemed to have turn that around. As the latest flagships from the Korean tech giant earned praises, there is now increasing attention over its upcoming release: the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 or Note 7.

According to GSM Arena, it is likely that Samsung will end up calling the device Note 7,as there has been considerable news over it. The expected release is just within two months thus the number of leaks going up. Recently, there has been confirmation on the name of the device thanks to a prototype that has circle around the web.

The leak suggests that the device’s model number will be Samsung SM-N930A which could be considered AT&T’s version of the next Note considering that the Note 5 came with model number SM-N920A.

No Android N for the New Galaxy Note

However, according to Phone Arena, it appears that Samsung will be using the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update instead. The prototype was listed running on the said firmware instead of Google’s upcoming Android N. The Android N Developer Preview has been accessible since March so there were expectations that Samsung will test it instead of the Marshmallow version.

Nonetheless, as with other tips and leaks, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. Samsung has not released the official details of the said device. Other features to expect based on previous leaks include dual-curve display, up to 6 GB RAM, a Snapdragon 823 or Exynos 8890 processor  and other supposedly high end features.
