Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 rumoured to launch mid-August

Looks like we finally have a set date for when the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 would be announced. Serial tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks, has revealed that the launch of the Note 6 is set for the "week of August 15" in the US. It should be pointed out that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 around the same time, last year.


According to a previous report, Samsung is actually testing two display form factors for its upcoming phablet flagship and both pack in a sizeable 4000mAh battery. The source reports that the company is experimenting with both a flat and a curved (dual edge) display, but that only one of them will make it as the final design.

Both displays sport Quad HD resolution and are 5.8-inches in size. While the difference between the currently available Note 5 is barely 0.1 inch, there is something new to go with this as well. Samsung is tagging its panel as a ‘Slim RGB’ display that should not just make the panel lighter but also make more room for the bigger battery that is expected to share that space as well. The 4000mAh battery is expected to pack in some amount of heft and Samsung seems to have found a solution by creating a slimmer display panel.

Other specifications include 6GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. The test models are said to feature an Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820 processors, both of which will run the upcoming Android N. In addition, it could also sport a 12MP dual pixel camera, as seen previously on the Galaxy S7 series. One can also expect a USB Type C, waterproof design and an iris scanner.

Rumour has it that Samsung is also working on a BlackBerry Hub-like new app called Focus, which will reportedly consolidate messages from multiple apps. The company might also release a new Gear VR headset with Galaxy Note 6.
