Samsung reportedly testing Galaxy Note 6 variants with curved and non-curved screens, 4000 mAh battery
The latest details concerning the upcoming handset come from Dutch website GSM Helpdesk. Reportedly, Samsung is currently testing two Galaxy Note 6 variants: one with a regular, flat display, and another one with a curved screen. Both, however, offer similar specs - even the screens are of the same size and pixel resolution (5.8 inches, Quad HD).
Interestingly, it's said that Samsung will launch only one of these Galaxy Note 6 versions - so we should have either a new Note with a regular screen (like the Note 5 - seen above), or one with a dual-curve screen (like the Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and Galaxy S6 edge). As you may know, Samsung already released a Note that features a curved screen: the Galaxy Note Edge from 2014. However, the display of the Note Edge (pictured below) is curved only on the right side, giving the device an asymmetrical look, and we don't really think Samsung wants to go back to that.
GSM Helpdesk also mentions that the Galaxy Note 6 will come with a 4000 mAh battery. This would be significantly larger than the 3000 battery that's found inside the Note 5, and could offer talk and standby times never seen before on a Note.
Screen and battery aside, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 may feature a 12 MP rear camera (likely the same that debuted on the Galaxy S7 series), 6 GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 823 or Exynos 8890 processor. Moreover, the device might have a water-resistant body and an iris scanner.
A recent report from Korea had it that Samsung could be ready to release the Note 6 in July, thus less than 1 year after the Note 5 was introduced (August 2015). Regardless of exactly when it's going to hit the market, the new handset should be available from all major US carriers, and many other mobile operators around the world.
