Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could come with 256GB of storage and a 4200mAh battery
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could be one buff phone according to the latest rumors. While Samsung usually loads the phablet with top-of-the line specs, this year it seems that the manufacturer will be outdoing itself. Of course, this is all speculation, and the specs were found on Weibo, China's micro-blogging site. That means that you should be taking this information with the proverbial grain of salt.

According to this leak, the Galaxy Note 6 will feature a 5.77-inch screen (call it 5.8-inches) carrying a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (QHD). A Snapdragon 823 chipset (basically an upgraded Snapdragon 820) will be under the hood of some units, while the Exynos 8890 will be powering other versions. The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is said to feature 6GB of RAM, something that will be more standard in 2017.

The device will come with a 4200mAh battery which should provide for at least 48-hours of battery life between charges. For the first time, the Note will feature an IP68 certification for protection from dust and water. And we could see a version with 256GB of internal storage. In addition, there is talk that the Galaxy Note 6 will have two variants; one will contain a curved screen and will use the "edge" moniker in its name. The other will have a plain, ordinary screen.

This isn't the first time that we have seen specs like this bandied about for the Galaxy Note 6, and it won't be the last leak about the phablet that we pass along over the next few months.

Thanks for the tip!

Instead of edge version, Samsung better deliver 6.3'' flat one.

Rather 6" and 5000mAh batt. Considering that Xiaomi pulled this 4000mAh in a 5" Redmi 3 easy.

6.3, 7 inch would be amazing, i have the mega 6.3 and love the big screen....... just lagging now after these years, had the note 1 and 2, and would go for note 6 especially if it has 256gb inside, plus micro sd.....!! samsung is just bullSH and will give a rubbish 32gb..... these rumours are just crud and get hype going only to be let down and another year of waiting for the note 7 with a bullSh 512gb stupid rumour

Sounds pretty cool on paper but anything genuinely new to come with the note?... If not, not much of an upgrade unless you fanboy over battery life.

Or perhaps you're a new Samsung I just might be.

Isn't everyone a fanboy over battery life? And if I'm correct, this 256 GB storage is the one Samsung announced. It's the fastest mobile storage till date and that can make note 6 the first phone to beat the iPhone 6s in speed.

What about USB Type-C and new Gear VR ? here is the answer

Well that 256gb will be a first, and if they do that, they wont need to worry about external storage (Even though it would be nice to be able to have a 512gb total storage on the phone :P). IF they did the 128 and 256 as the ONLY versions of the note 6, had a natural 4k display, a better GPU, 8-Core CPU, 4-6gb of RAM, and a 4000+mAh battery, that would be their best phone to date.

V12's are a beast, but hell to work on and tune. That's one beautiful big bodied car bro. I'm a Vette man myself, hence the pushrod V8.

Bring it in a Galaxy Note 6 Edge please.....A bigger screen, bigger battery, 6 gigs of ram, and 256gig HD, and removeable SD, better screen, and faster processor and Batttery is enough to upgrade any phone for.

Did I mention ip67 water resistent, 5.8-inch display with 2K resolution, 12MP, F1.7 aperture, OIS camera, with the addition of infrared autofocus. Both of these replies directed at Aikoo btw

It is. They are likely gonna use IRAF+ Dual Pixel. That must be even faster.

Android is the iPhone killer. It prevent the iPhone from being what Android is today. Just like Windows was the Mac killer. Windows prevented the Mac from being what Windows PC'S are today. An army can always beat the one. Killed doesn't have to mean died or gone. It can be smothered or suffocated. You can do both and not kill. Apple tried to stifled competition with stupid patent disputes that meant nothing. Android stifled Apple's growth and killed their chance for a full monopoly on thr smartphone market as Windows did to Mac OS. #justsayin

Hey Techie, show me where Apple touched you as a child? This article has nothing to do with Apple or the iPhone and yet you feel the need to go off on one of your tirades about the company as if it hurt you in some sort of way. Can we just appreciate what a monster the Note 6 is going to be? I've owned the Note 3, 4, and 5. I am tempted to buy the 6.

TechieXP is like the class clown, has to be seen and heard. He'd turn an article about a SNICKERS into an anti Apple essay. Teenage girls can be so flamboyant.

I've had notes ever since I went from S3 to the Note 3. Never looked back. Smaller phones feels awkward in my hand.

Unfortunately one thing missing in later notes after Note 2 is free hand writing recognition, which can recognize multiple lines of fast scribbled hand writing. Now you have to write one letter at a time - aka like writing in to a typewriter. Also Note 2 could focus on macro shot just couple of inches from the subject, which is another feature missing in later Notes. And lastly Note 2 was easy to disassemble and repair, which is not true with later Notes. So Samsung actually went backwards in some areas unfortunately. Having huge built in storage and battery is nice, but older Notes already had SD card slot where you can plug in 512GB SD card (with SD card adapter), and removable battery (which you can put in 10,000mAH zerolemon replacement). So these new features are not a big boon.

if it has 256gb hd what is there a need to put a removable SD card slot. yes i know it would be a good option but if you have that much storage internally i don't see a use for it.

So don't buy ot. It's not for you. For me I could carry my full 128GB library of movies and music. More space to carry my docs. Plenty of room for 4k recordings. So much better than Apple sticking with 16GB. Since you likely won't fill the storage, less chance for slowdown. Maybe Samsung will cache apps on the internal storage. Again. It's obviously not for you so.domt worry about it. I could potentially carry a small backup image of my PC. Trust me if anyone buys this model which I am sure will be expensive, it will be for a purpose and not some overpriced toy phone pretending to be useful. It's not for you.
