The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have only just arrived, but hype has started to build up and rumors have started to swirl around Samsung's next flagship device, the Galaxy Note 6.
No official announcements have been made regarding the Galaxy Note 6, but it's expected to be launched within the year to continue Samsung's Galaxy Note line.
The next major version of Google's mobile operating system, now known only as Android N, is also coming out this year, and it appears the Galaxy Note 6 will be shipped out with it installed.
According to Korean website The Bell, sources revealed [translated] that the Galaxy Note 6 is being planned for a July release. The smartphone, which bears the codename Grace, will reportedly be shipped with Android N out of the box. This indicates that Google is planning to launch the next version of Android prior to July.
A launch date before July for Android N is feasible given the fact that Google unexpectedly released the developer preview of the operating system earlier this month.
Not much else is revealed about the Galaxy Note 6 from the report, though more information will surely be spread regarding the smartphone as the supposed July launch date draws nearer.
The Galaxy Note 6 is expected to have a 5.8-inch display, which is slightly larger compared to the 5.7-inch displays of the previous three Galaxy Note devices. It is also expected to have a QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
It remains to be seen if Samsung will upgrade its octa-core Exynos 8 chip in time for the Galaxy Note 6's launch or the smartphone will pack a refreshed Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. RAM for the device is expected not to go lower than 4 GB, with the possibility that it will go as high as 6 GB.
