Analysts expect early arrival of the Galaxy Note 6

The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge have been very successful so far. One estimate suggests that the handsets have collectively sold 9 million units in the first month alone, which is a significant surge compared to the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge which only sold a little more than 3 million units in the same period last year.

The demand and the success for the flagships have been attributed to the handsets’ lower price tag as well, so it’s clear that Samsung has done its homework before bringing the flagships to the market. Unlike last year, the company has increased demand projections for the edge model, which is undoubtedly the more popular variant of the two.

All these factors have prompted the analysts to predict that Samsung might release the Galaxy Note 6 much before the Apple iPhone 7. A recent report mentioned that the Galaxy Note 6 would be launched by July instead of August, thus beating Apple to the punch. However, we must realize that this is merely a speculative report from the analysts and not a confirmation from Samsung. As it stands, we can expect the Galaxy Note 6 to be launched no sooner than August 2016. Our sources have mentioned that there is currently no firmware being developed for the Galaxy Note 6, which effectively rules out the possibility of an early release at this point.

I own a Note 5, and am thrilled with it. And if the Note 6 comes, apart from the flat version, in the EDGE varient too (as in S7 Edge — and please make it curved on both edges, as a single curved edge like in Note 4 Edge makes it look positively grotesque), I will pre-book it on launch day itself. Other features I would like to seen in the Note 6 are 4K resolution, 6GB Ram, 256GB internal storage and 2TB expandable storage. I wouldn’t mind a device-sized keyboard folio (the cover types) too. But the Note 6… Read more »

Bring back Ir blaster please. Use ceramics or something stronger than glass. Upgrade the s7 camera to 16 mp, IP68, more battery and better battery optimization and Fm radio will be a nice addition

Yes, I’d like 16mp for even sharper and more detailed images even if the camera gets the hump of the S6 and Note 5 models I don’t care I’ll put a case anyway.

Whatever they do I earnestly hope they bring back
1. The IR blaster
2. Make the base model 64gb internal storage.
Also 16/8 MP FFC/BFC, removable battery and 6gb memory would be great.

Further suggesting that the Note5 was a mistake. Great phone but a bit of a mistake. Seems to have been that way for the odd numbered Notes except for the first one.

“The demand and the success for the flagships have been attributed to the handsets’ lower price tag as well…” Indeed and it should be even cheaper. I always argued that the main problem with S5 lower than expected sales (but still more than any other android phone that year) wasn’t the “plasticky-non-metal-premium” non sense but it’s high tag price due to Samsung’s obsession to compete with Apple in this respect without realising that its main competition doesn’t come from Apple but from withing the android OS. Now it’s more difficult to justify spending so much cash in any of these… Read more »
