Galaxy Note 6 model number list leaks, European model included

While the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are busy getting the praise and attention they deserve, the rumor mill has been churning out tidbits about Samsung’s next flagship, the Galaxy Note 6. We have heard of a possible early launch with 6GB of RAM and Android N out of the box, and today a list with the model number of the Note 6 for various regions has made its way online.

The Galaxy Note 6 is codenamed Grace, which we have known along with the model numbers for some time. However, the list contains two interesting bits – a European variant is mentioned right at the very bottom (confirming rumors), and it seems Samsung will now be using the same model number for all the major US carrier variants. With the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, the company has already simplified things by keeping the same model number for most of the unlocked variants, and it seems it will take things a step further with the Note 6 later this year.

Purported Galaxy Note 6 model number list leaks, European model included

For those unaware, having similar model numbers across different markets means Samsung can push out updates considerably faster than before instead of making consumers wait for weeks for their turn. We all know how messed up the Korean giant’s software policy is, but things are looking up this year. For example, the first major S7 and S7 edge update arrived in various regions around the world within a week, for both the single and dual-SIM versions.

The Galaxy Note 6 will also come in a dual-SIM variety in some markets. As we exclusively revealed, it will also have IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. It could also feature an iris scanner, and could be powered by the Snapdragon 823 SoC. How much of all this turns out to be true remains to be seen, but with the excellent Note 5 as a base, the next Note flagship might just turn out to be mighty impressive.

Samsung, read carefully: UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER OR BYE BYE!

that is all.

What model are you referring, because if you’re a subscriber of Verizon and AT&T then unlocked bootloaders are nil

I was right that SM-N930x is the model number format and SM-N930FD is a surprise for me

What you don’t have the serial numbers for Rogers Canada or Telus Canada?

I have a Note 3 since it came out, along I have a 128gb SD card. Fortunately I’ve been lucky on upgrading the firmware from SAMMOBILE and it’s working fine, so far. I was so disappointed with NOTE 4 because it had no special advantages to the NOTE 3… so I kept going using my NOTE 3. I’ve already broke the screen and had it replaced for a new screen… I have hopes that NOTE 6 comes with things I need, a SD Slot for my SD card. The NOTE 5 was a complete disappointment too: no SD Slot and… Read more »

SD card slot will definitely be back in the note 6 at least. It’s obvious since they returned it to the s7 and s7 edge.

It’s a shame that the Note series phones don’t really have many rumours surrounding them. There aren’t very many leaks either. I am looking to upgrade my S7 Edge to a Note 6 when it’s released and I’m not seeing the hype like the S7… I’m having to excite myself by imagining what it might be like. I would rather hear “sources” say what might be on the phone. Even if it’s blatantly silly like laser-guided missiles or a toaster function. Even if the source isn’t credible I still like to hear it so I can get excited. I hope… Read more »

Looking forward to the Note 6, but I’m really disappointed in the performance of my Note 4 that has now significantly slowed down. It has S lag in spades. Also still not received marshmallow.

Highly doubt Note 6 will come out with Android N. Never ever happened with other note phone’s at all.

Sorry but Samsung updates are getting worse day by day, month by month, year by year.

Still we are in April and nearly all Samsung devices should have got the update by now. So far Note 5 and S6 variants “fully” got the updates.

I hope they will also bring out a Exynos equipped model.
