The successor of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be launched in first week of August, according to Evan Blass, who is well known for his updates on upcoming smartphones.
In his Twitter account, @evleaks, Evan tweeted, “Galaxy Note 6/7 launch event is almost exactly two months away”.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5 in 2015, Note 4 in 2014 and Note 3 the year before that. So in that sequence, it was expected to bring new Note series phone by the name Note 6. However, as per recent reports, Samsung is perhaps planning to skip a digit so that its Note device lineup to be in sync with its other line up – the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge which were launched in March this year.
As per earlier rumours, the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 (or Note 7) will have a slightly bigger display and bigger battery than its predecessor. As per reports, this year’s Samsung Note phablet will sport USB Type-C port replacing the microUSB connector. Samsung is also expected to launch a new Gear VR headset featuring a USB Type-C port. The current version of the Gear VR connects to Samsung phone via a microUSB port.
The upcoming Note 6 (or Note 7) is expected to have a 5.8-inch display against the 5.7-inch screen of its predecessors – Note 3, Note 4 and last year’s Note 5. As per earlier rumors, the Galaxy Note 6 is also likely to have 12-megapixel rear camera used in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones with IR autofocus, 6 GB RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 4000 mAh battery, Android N (upcoming Android version), and Exynos 8890 and/or Snapdragon 823 chipset. It will be water and dust resistant too.
