Rumor: Galaxy Note 6 could feature a 5.8-inch curved display, 4,000 mAh battery

Home / News / Rumor: Galaxy Note 6 could feature a 5.8-inch curved display, 4,000 mAh battery

While we still can’t believe the rumors about the Galaxy Note 6 making an official appearance as early as July, Samsung seems to be extremely busy with its next flagship as details on the device just keep on making their way online. We had heard that the Galaxy Note 6 could feature a 5.8-inch ‘Slim RGB’ display, and a new leak is supporting the increased screen size today. According to the folks over at GSM Helpdesk, Samsung is currently toying with both a flat and a curved display for the next Note flagship (with both displays featuring Quad HD resolution).

The curved display is said to be of the same size, which doesn’t come as a surprise as even a 0.1-inch increase in display size is something Samsung has taken a long time to do. The source of the information says the Korean giant will only be launching a single device as a successor to the Note 5 and S6 edge+ from last year but is currently undecided on which version it will bring to market. A curved model does seem highly plausible, as Samsung wouldn’t mind pushing a form factor it has so beautifully perfected with the Galaxy S7 edge.

The other interesting tidbit in this leak is the battery size of the Note 6. The source doesn’t exactly know the battery capacity but suggests a 4,000 mAh battery might power the device. With a larger body, it wouldn’t exactly be hard to fit in a 4,000 mAh battery inside the Note 6, especially if Samsung makes the device thicker than its predecessor (a move that helped the company fit the large batteries inside the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge).

The Note 6 should also come with improved camera software while keeping the same camera hardware as the S7 family, 6GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, according to the leak. The prototypes being tested are said to be powered by the Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 823 chipsets and running Android N, which reiterates what we have heard previously. An iris scanner isn’t confirmed at this point.

As usual, there’s no telling if the leaked information is totally accurate, as Samsung could change things up in the coming months as development goes on. The Note 6 is certainly shaping up to be a major upgrade based on all the rumors, and we should be seeing more details cropping up in the near future.

Seems nobody at Samsung ever knows what is going on. They seem to have the same leaders making the same mistakes over & over. Never taking surveys on what a consumer wants in a new phone. They seemed to lay about as many people off as they can without having no workers . I bought a S7Edge waiting on the new note. Really hate the curved screen. Keep hearing about how many people keep breaking it. Big screwups on my part. But I also didn’t want a S7 with the small battery. We got to face it. If you want… Read more »

I would want to use flat display, if the Note 6 is curved display, I would have to buy something else. I don’t want a curve display because I frequently activate items on the sides of the display such as a page turn while reading an ebook, while holding the phone. I don’t need the bells and whistles offered by the curved display, totally happy with a flat screen and I can hold my phone in my hand without activating anything on the sides of the display.

Bring back the microsd card and the infra red port and we all will be happy.

Yes, the microsd is a must, no matter how large the internal storage is. I would use the microsd card for storing personal documents and videos/movies which easily take up 2GB for a 720p movie and more for a 1080p movie.

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 »

Why everyone hate edge version of Note 6? I am actually waiting for Note 6 Edge version. What is wrong with edge? Curved screen eye catcher and useful. It will Looks like we are in future 🙂 I started saving money for Note 6 Edge!

I don’t mind a +0.1 inch increase in display size, but please NOT a curved display.

I have a Note 4, the last Great Samsung Galaxy model. The S7 was a step in the right direction. They almost corrected the mistakes after my wife and daughter’s S5s. If I had to replace the phones in this house today I would do like everyone in the shop in the last few months, LG….. ONLY CURVED DISPLAY, DEAL BREAKER!!! Same as BATTERY, SD and only 32Gb. 4Gb RAM, no IR they would be undesirable I would expect 1 year from now. Timely security updates and software support might keep me open minded if I had to wait for… Read more »

We may not see how much feature they add but we may see how much they omit ! Like adoptable sd card etc.

32GB internal storage is grossly inadequate.

Hope Samsung is smart enough to make to versions of the note 6. One flat note 6 and one Note 6 edge. So people can choose because not everyone wants a curved screen

If you can maintain the water resistance of the s7, the expandable storage, EXYNOS PROCESSOR, maybe the IR blaster (since that came very handy) and plus these added specs, i think itd be great. I love the exynos more than the snapdragon after experiencing it on the Note5. From personal preference a slight thickness for some battery room wouldnt upset much, also helps with the camera petruding as well.

Note with edge screen? Hmmm… no, thanks. It doesn’t fit. A flat screen suits with Note line.

Curved screen? No thank you.

Samsung, always going to find a way to fuck up… (The Note 5 & Europe, now the possible curved screen…)

Not everyone wants a curved display, Samsung should keep that in mind.

No curved screen now .. that curved screen has almost no value except adding the extraordinary looks to the design department (I had to agree).. but it measurably fails in every other area .. it’s more like a distortion on display .. attracting lot of light reflections .. and also ruins the subject geometry that is being displayed on screen ..

Enough of this curved screen hype .. and also those curved TVs .. those will also soon be obsolete just like 3D picture in latest TVs now a days !!

Okay so now it´s 32 GB internal, just weeks ago it was supposed to be 256 GB internal. You can see that it really is a waste of time to follow the rumour mill. And it´s also the same articles every day/week/month, it´s all on repeat. Getting bored with this site… BTW, I think the Note should be the best the company can offer and the Galaxy S should be the best they can offer + what customers want. But the Note shouldn´t be about simplicity and doing 32 gigs internal + microSD, that´s so boring and complicated in real… Read more »

If Samsung releases the Galaxy Note 6 with 32Gb or 64Gb internal storage this will be a deal breaker for me. Now if they are smart enough to add a 128Gb internal storage that I will buy the Note 6.

The edge screen is only a design choice, no real value at all. Hope they’re making a 5.8 flat note 6

Samsung should drop that 32 gb internal memory
I mean enough is enough how hard is that be to put 128 gb internal memory and micro sd card

Other than that i was expecting 4k screen mainly because 1080p VR experience

It’s not about it being hard. There’s nothing hard about it. The modules are the same size. It’s a matter of cost. You want to pay for a 128 GB storage module? You’re looking at an extra $150 added to the full price. So you’d be will to pay close to $1000 for a phone? I’d rather have 32 or 64 GB inside and add an SD card that’ll cost me much less.

Also the Note series isn’t compatible with the Galaxy VR cause of its size.

Note 5 is definetly compatible with the Gear VR that was released with galaxy S7. This new VR is adjustable to suit all S6s, Note 5 and S7s. Supprisingly too the A series (2016) edition work with the S7 VR. http://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/wearables/gear-vr/ check compatibility tab.

4,000 mAh is good, though I would have loved a 4,500 mAh.

I hope Samsung decides to go with the flat screen on Note 5. The edge display, while it looks good, is a headache for regular use. I could always feel my eyes strain on my Wife’s S6 Edge+ while the same thing didn’t happen on my Note 5.

It should def be sth between 4500-5000. I wouldn’t understand anything less when they put 5000 mAh on the A9 pro with a lower resolution.
