Before a product releases, a lot of rumors and speculations swamp the media that can be mind-boggling. Samsung’s latest and much-talked about Samsung Galaxy Note 6 has still some time before it releases, but a recent leaked report hints at a special feature that might be available on the device. The stylus-equipped phablet will be dustproof and waterproof to IP68 certification, says reports.
If this latest rumor is true, you can submerge the Galaxy Note 6 in up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes, without affecting its internals. It is expected to launch before the release of Apple’s iPhone 7 with an iris scanner on board, enabling users to unlock the keypad by looking into the phone.
A report by Galaxy Club points out that the South Korean company might import ‘iris cam’ for R&D activities in India. While the project will be called ‘Samsung Mobile’, other details about the phone are still scarce, reports First Post.
NDTV notes that the device’s IP68 certification makes it dust resistant. This means you can receive or make calls during heavy downpour or in the storm without having to worry about its safety. We are not sure when Samsung plans to launch the Note 6, but it is expected to arrive this year.
Reports suggest that the device will come with a 5.8-inch slim RGB AMOLED display with QHD or 1440×2560 pixel screen resolution. It is expected to feature 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM with 64GB and 128GB storage options along with 12MP rear camera and super OIS (optical image stabilization) Plus sensor.
Right now, there are several rumors doing the rounds that the device will launch in July, instead of August. Also, it is expected to run on Android N operating system, the latest OS by Google, which is currently in beta testing. Once confirmed and publicly announced at the Google I/O 2016 conference, we can expect the software to make its way to the Note 6.
