Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly feature Snapdragon 823 SoC

Samsung isn’t due to unveil the Galaxy Note 6 until the fall but rumors and reports are already coming in about the company’s next-generation phablet. The latest, originating from China, suggests that the Galaxy Note 6 will be powered by a 64-bit Kryo 2.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor with Adreno 530 GPU and up to 8GB of RAM.

It appears to be a bit implausible because Samsung won’t really be competing against the Snapdragon 823 with the Exynos 8890, which is its flagship high-end processor. Because no new Exynos processor has arrived after this one it’s likely that Samsung might not opt for the Snapdragon 823 for the Galaxy Note 6. There’s not a lot of information available on the SD823 right now but it’s believed to be the same as the Snapdragon 820 model running on a higher clock.

Samsung could come out with a similar version of the Exynos 8890 but it can’t be said for sure unless there’s some official confirmation from the company. In fact, given the performance differences between the Exynos and Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, the Korean giant might just choose to stick to the same Exynos chip while bringing in the Snapdragon 823 to replace the Snapdragon 820. Of course, that will only help if the company hasn’t deliberately limited performance on the Snapdragon model of the S7 duo.

This is all pure speculation right now and you should consume it as such. Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy Note 6 is going to have a 5.8-inch display and 6GB of RAM. What we know for sure right now, and have exclusively reported on, is that the Galaxy Note 6 is going to be IP68 water resistant.

If they just make Exynos only it would be much better, in fact Exynos is actually a lot faster than SD

No more SnapDragon variant Samsung! We’re only one request. Exynos chipset and fast software update.

I think it would be like this but i’m not sure about it:
SM-N930F International Snapdragon LTE
SM-N930C/CD International Exynos LTE(either Single SIM or Dual SIM)
SM-N930G Australia/Latin America and India Snapdragon LTE
SM-N930S/K/L Snapdragon or Exynos LTE models for South Korea
SM-N930W8 Canada Snapdragon or Exynos LTE

Samsung should REALLY just ditch the Snapdragon and go with their own. Much better.

OMG!! 8 GBs of RAM, if that’s true I’ll definitely buy it, since Android is wrriten in Java it requires a lot of RAM to run smoothly unlike iOS which can run smoothly with just 1gb,,, anyway that’s “if” ,, if it wasn’t 8gbs of RAM I’ll stick with my S5 and wait for note 7 or maybe s8

25MP… whoever spreading out this rumor MAY have some mental issue. If it’s really 25mp, then Samsung will be like telling people they admit that they had made a big mistake for putting a 12MP on the S7.

Upto 25 MP camera means that the processor supports a camera sensor upto that resolution. It is not about any device. It is just the maximum limit for the processor that is mentioned there.

Ah, right, thanks for pointing that out!

Still prefer an xynos version (if it’s even a thing on the Note6) if the S823 still has the ram management issue. xynos 8890 is still a beast regardless..
