A new report claims Samsung is currently testing two Galaxy Note 6 designs. The company is said to have created a curved screen model and one with a flat display and will supposedly choose between the two when it releases the phablet in the summer.
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 in August, it also launched the Galaxy S6 Edge+, which featured the same 5.7-inch Quad HD display, but as its name implies, it packed in a dual curved-edge screen. We haven't heard anything about an S6 Edge+ successor but the Galaxy Note 6 has been making headlines over the last few weeks.
In mid-February, a report surfaced claiming to reveal some of the Samsung Galaxy Note 6's key specs. It was revealed that Samsung is reportedly planning on using a 5.8-inch Slim RGB display, generous 6 GB of RAM, and featuring a 12-megapixel rear camera with "Super OIS Plus."
Now, a new report claims Samsung is testing two Galaxy Note 6 models; one with a standard flat display and the other with the company's popular curved edge display. The report claims that unlike the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung isn't planning on releasing a standard and curved Galaxy Note 6 and will soon make the decision on whether to manufacture its next-gen flagship Note with either a flat or curved display.
The source claims that Samsung is currently testing the Galaxy Note 6 prototypes powered by its own Exynos 8890 processors and Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chip. The handsets are said to be running Android N, which is expected to be Android 7.0 and released in fall.
While the source couldn't confirm an exact battery capacity for the Galaxy Note 6, it suggested that the phablet would likely sport a large 4,000 mAh battery.
We reported in early April that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is also expected to feature the same IP68 waterproof case design found on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Reports have also suggested that Samsung may push up the release of the Note 6 and release it in July.
As always, it's best to take reports of highly anticipated devices like the Galaxy Note 6 with a grain of salt. We'll keep you posted on any new Samsung Galaxy Note 6 information as it becomes available.
