Galaxy Note 6
The Galaxy Note 6 will apparently feature 6GB of RAM. This comes via sources in China, who claim to be familiar with the handset, which is expected to land later on this year — likely late-Q2, early-Q3. But it’s not just RAM where Samsung is looking to make a splash. According to additional reports, the company is also looking at larger storage options for its Galaxy Note 6. Potentially as high has 256GB.
“We are determined to push the competitive edge in premium storage line-ups – OEM NVMe SSDs, external SSDs, and UFS – by moving aggressively to enhance performance and capacity in all three markets.” said Joo Sun Choi, executive vice president, Memory Sales and Marketing, Samsung told, according to International Business Times.
The Galaxy Note 6 is also likely to be fitted with the same 3,600mAh battery used by the S7 Edge, at least according to reports in China. Samsung will also reintegrate the micro SD technology that it had excluded from recent device releases when the Galaxy Note 6 hits the stores. This would be particularly welcome as storage is increasingly at a premium in such high-end devices as the Galaxy Note range.
In accordance with this, it is also anticipated that Samsung will support the native Android Marshmallow feature of adoptable storage, which had not been included in the Galaxy S7. This would be a welcome inclusion that could really make the phablet considerably more convenient for both consumers and the business marketplace. With Apple rumored to be considering an iPhone Pro release in the coming years, Samsung will have to work harder and produce more in order to attract the corporate sector.
Another rumor has emerged since a patent depicted a particularly interesting concept that Samsung is currently considering for the Galaxy Note 6. The patent in question would enable the corporation to deliver a hybrid Galaxy Note 6, effectively turning the phablet into a temporary laptop when required. The Samsung device would then be docked with a keyboard in order to become a desktop computer.
With Samsung needing to close the gap on Apple rather rapidly, it is possible that the Galaxy Note 6 could launch earlier in the year than previous iterations of the series. There is no doubt that the Korean company will be following Apple extremely closely at present, with the latter possibly due to release an iPhone Pro before the end of the year. However, other reports have suggested that Apple will delay the iPhone Pro, owing to the fact that it wishes to include OLED technology in the smartphone for the first time, and this could also influence Samsung’s strategy.
Regardless of this, the Galaxy Note 6 could be the most powerful and revolutionary device in the history of Samsung, and it will be intriguing to see what the corporation ultimately delivers.
