After Samsungâ€™s success with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, we all know that the South Korean smartphone giant will launch theÂ Galaxy Note 6Â in the coming months. The Galaxy Note 6 was rumored to launch in July with Android N on board,Â but now rumors has it thatÂ the launch is scheduled for August. Thereâ€™s no doubt that the Note 6 will give direct competition to the upcoming iPhone.Â According to @evleaks, the Galaxy Note 6 will be released in the week of August 15 in the US.
We also know that it will be water- & dust-resistant similar to theÂ Galaxy S7 duo. It will also feature a USB Type-C portÂ withÂ reversible connector, but we curently donâ€™t know whether it will be USB 3.1 or an older standard. The USB 3.1 standard supports USB Power Delivery 2.0 for faster device charging and anÂ ability to carry HDMI or Display Port video signals.Â While we knew some of the configurations, few of them are heard for the first time. According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 6 Lite might be a cheaper variant of Galaxy Note 6 that might have a slightly different specifications at a relatively affordable price point.
The Galaxy Note 6 is expected toÂ carry a 5.8-inch screen (5.77 inches, to be precise), and the resolution should also be the typical 2K. The camera might come with anÂ IR autofocus mechanism, which combined with the 12MP dual-pixel Galaxy S7 camera, will focus faster in low light and more. The Note 6 is expectedÂ toÂ have 6GB of RAM. Also, there are rumorsÂ that the newÂ Gear VRÂ will be launched with the Galaxy Note 6. Even based on rumours, it wouldnâ€™t surprise usÂ if they are switching to USB Type-C, the current Gear VR model wonâ€™t work with it. We will have to wait to knowÂ more details as we move nearer to the launch.
