Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could come with 256GB of storage and a 4200mAh battery

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!

If it doesn't have a user-swappable battery, the rest is irrelevent.

Wish I had some specs on the GS7 Active, would like to compare to the note 6 for my next phone. Hopefully it is worth upgrading from my s6 active.

I hope we get a bigger and louder speaker with this new Note 6. We need something we can hear in the car when the windows are down and we are running navigation or a call on speakerphone

Not gonna happen. Since Micro SD will most likely return, I don't think so

256 GB is great. But even the performance is superb. Simple the best available at launch. It will likely improve device perdormance much more than faster processors will.

Good, SD cards are still s**t compare to internal storage, yes they are fine for music and videos, but still, internal storage is way better

I'm skeptic about the 256gb storage since the s6 128gb didn't arrived in my country. But storage chips are getting cheaper so I'd like to see other companies get bigger storage aside from apple and asus

nothing new here. we've already known that the note 6 could come with 256GB and 4000+mAh battery. and that it will probably be dust and water resistant/proof. I don't care about the 256 and 4000, dust, and water resistant/proof. samsung is going to charge a lot for 256GB storage. I am not going to make that mistake again after seeing how little my 128GB samsung s6 is worth. 4000+mAh batter is an insult. battery needs to be 5000 or 6000+. years ago I used to say that 8GB phones needed 256GB storage options etc...I was ridiculed. we need to be talking about 1TB phones. now that's something to talk about. the edge is a gimmick. I consider it an insult to us customers. I am not expecting much from the note 6, if they just improve upon it from the note 5 I will consider buying (along the with expected upgrades like micro sd slot, the upgrades the s7 got from the s6). The only thing I am hoping for is a 4K screen. but I see the probability of that being...10% or less...we are still a ways from official announcement so in my opinion we still have a chance at a 4k screen.

Give us a premium phone. No fragile glass back. Leave that for the Edge series. This is the power user device.

Awesome specs, Just hope the battery is removable! I sold my Note 5 and went back to a Note 4 for this reason alone. I could care less if the battery is 3,000 or 10,000 mAh, It's nice being able to swap it out in mere seconds... Just sayin.

If this is indeed true, Everyone might ignore the Note 7 for this have overkill storage space and lightning fast CPU/GPU chip so the next Note will really really have a hard time to capitalize or one up at least

Samsung don't put 8890 in it please, add 4 more T880 cores and lower the frequency, better cooling and efficiency.

Dude, it's not a super's a phone bruh. Samsung knows what it's doing, it'll be fine.

Hey Dark, Following are few lines from anandtech's article 7420 deep dive. "In the case of the Galaxy S6 the GPU is not able to maintain the maximum frequency for more than 2 minutes and throttles to half the performance after about 20 minutes." "I think Samsung could have even gotten away in performance benchmarks by keeping the chip at up to only 1.9GHz to keep power consumption below the 1W per core mark. This would have slightly improved efficiency on high loads as the small 10% performance degradation would have been worth the 26% power improvement." Samsung know's what it's doing, they went for thickness and benchmark hype, as customer want it. They don't want to make phone with big SOC, bigger battery as it would be thicker. This changed in S7. But note 4 (Exynos) was great improvement over S5 (and S6 was great improvement in few specs over note 4), I wish every phone comes with such improvements. But note 5 was just bigger s6 hardware wise.

Damn, I stand corrected lol. Let's avoid the 8890.

How funny. My S7edge gets so hot that it reaches 75C and the Gpu in clocked at 988mhz, and soc at 2.7ghz. I ain't complaining. But I always carry a 3000mah powerbank.

they'll use SD823, but if they want to make exynos version, theyll make better processor than 8890 to catch up with snapdragon version

This is good! I hope this news to be true.. I hope to see Note 6 build from metal or not shiny glass

If it doesn't have at least 64 gigs internal, I'm passing. SD card storage is not my cup of tea. It's cool, but I prefer the marjority to be internal. 256 gigs internal, and my Note 5 goes on Craigslist.

Swappa is a good site to sell and buy smartphones.

Never heard of it, but I've done a lotta good business thru CL. Always meet at a nice safe place, usually a cell store. I'll look into swappa.
